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!

Emaciated Red-tailed Hawk
This hawk was rescued in Granite Falls by our staff. He was not flying and seemed to be in distress. He is suffering from emaciation, but has no serious injuries. Emaciated patients are a challenge and their prognosis is always guarded. Many die as their organs have started to shut down. We start them on a special protocol to re-hydrate and get their digestive track working again. It requires skill, patience, and luck to get them to recover. Status: released
