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!

Orphaned Eastern Cottontails
These three rabbits came to us last week. They were found in Stanwood and the presenter brought them to us for care. Do you see the thin tube on the table? We tube feed these guys twice a day. They are given a specific formula and amount based on their weight. They are weighed daily and adjustments are made accordingly. This is not a hobby. Caring for orphans like these requires a license, training, and access to the necessary supplies and formulas. Do NOT feed orphaned bunnies and squirrels half and half, whipping cream or anything else you read about on the internet. It is not legal and the information is wrong. Many animals are near starvation or dead before they come to us as well intentioned people do the wrong things. Please leave it to the rehab professionals. We have been here for 40 years and treat thousands of animals annually. Thanks!! Status: Released
