I dealt with 2 burn cases at the spay day and am saddened that this hideous practice is still taking place. If a person believes a dog is being a nuisance then either hot water or oil is thrown at them to chase them away. 😡 ... See MoreSee Less
Please don't turn a blind eye if you see ANY animal in distress. Even if you just make a call to get the intent of rescue moving. You may well be it's only hope. They cannot speak for themselves. ...... ... See MoreSee Less
We are seeing this photo shared all over Facebook and it is terrifying to rehabbers.
Please DO NOT offer yarn, string, human or pet hair for wildlife to build nests! Every year we see young and adult songbirds and small mammals come in to rehabilitation because of this “help” by humans and often it is fatal.
Also DO NOT offer laundry dryer lint. The lint collected in your dryer filter may seem like ideal nesting material, but it isn’t. It will soak up water and may be filled with chemicals that are unhealthy for animals that are growing in it.
Yes, we know that they obtain some of these things on their own and use them in their dens and nests, but that doesn’t mean it is healthy or good for them. They use what they find and sometimes what they find is deadly.
Birds, bunnies, squirrels and many others lose feet, legs, wings and at times are even decapitated from these things slowly tightening and becoming a ligature, slowly cutting off circulation.
Please, do NOT try to “help” nature in this way, the results can be deadly!
EDIT: the fiber sold in most wild bird stores is typically fine because it won't break apart into fine strands. It's the individual strands that are the problem.
NOTE: If you check how many rehab centers have shared this, we are NOT nearly the only place asking you to stop.

Moya brought in an unusual case this morning. Zim Zim a little boy born with his penis outside of its sheath. Perfectly healthy happy little chappie. We corrected it surgically for him and he is being monitored. ... See MoreSee Less
Cutest pup yet to be named popped out of the bag! 😊 I discussed diet as she was only being fed cow milk. Dewormer given and she will be seen in 2 weeks time, hopefully with a name then. ... See MoreSee Less
