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!

This is the time of year when many juvenile bats are out on their own for the first time and they sometimes get into trouble. We have had a record number of bats arrive in the past few weeks. The top image is a Long-eared bat, the bottom one is a Little Brown bat. We’ve also seen a Big Brown bat in the past week. Remember that not all bats are rabid. Certainly do not handle them without thick gloves and be sure to get it into a secure box. Better yet try to scoop it gently into a box without handling it at all. Please call us with questions or concerns. Bats are important to our ecosystem and we are here to get help! Status: transferred for continued care to our colleagues at Happy Valley Bats.
