Patient of the Week
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!

Wounded Eastern gray squirrels
These three were being attacked by crows on a golf course. The crows were scared off by the presenter. The mom desperately tried to get them back into the tree, but they were too heavy and she couldn't make it. After watching the struggle they were eventually rescued and brought to us. They have some wounds and lots of bruises, but are settling into our baby mammal nursery. If you find orphaned squirrels (or any wildlife in need) contact your local rehabilitation facility. These patients need special care to be returned to the wild. Status: pending.
