Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

100th Patient of 2017 - Douglas Squirrel
This adult Douglas squirrel had a fight with another squirrel. He has a small wound on his head, but otherwise seems fine. Territory disputes are common for many species this time of year.
He is also our 100th Patient for 2017!! Since there have only been 66 days so far in the year - we are quite busy for the "slow" season. Baby Season is just around the corner, despite the snow that fell again today - we know babies are due to arrive any time now. Status - died. Despite antibiotic treatment for his wounds, he could not fight off the infection.
