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!

Entangled Virginia Opossum
He arrived last week after being found wandering around in the road. He was rescued and brought to us. You can see the series of wire cables that were tangled around his neck and abdomen. It seems to have been a crude harness. He has lacerations and constriction injuries that are being treated for infection. No idea if someone was trying to keep him as pet (which is illegal) or if they just wanted to hurt him. Fortunately, he was found and is now resting comfortably in our ICU. Status: Released
