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!

Barred Owl stuck in netting
This juvenile Barred owl was found tangled up in netting over a chicken coop. He did not suffer any significant injuries and should be ready to release soon. This is a good time to remind everyone to tighten your nets over pens and remove any play netting, like soccer backstops or landscape nets that are no longer serving a purpose. We get many animals (both birds and mammals) that get stuck in nets. It is always a good idea to contain them to bring them in for evaluation. Even if you think you’ve got it off, there can be dehydration or soft tissue trauma that are better to treat before releasing the animals. We are here 7 days a week. Status: Released
