Why It Matters

[Wildlife rehabilitation] "is a process of coming to know something quite unlike you, to understand it well enough not only to keep it alive but also to put it back, like a puzzle piece, into the gap in the world it left behind."

 -- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk

Happy New Year from our Pacific Wildlife Care family to yours! 2019 was a very busy year for our clinic. We saw a total of 2,613 wildlife patients! Those patients included 224 grebes, 25 pelicans, 50 hummingbirds, 142 owls, 21 skunks, 23 bats, and 13 foxes just to name a few. Our ability to help each animal depends on your generosity and support. Thank you for donating, calling us, bringing us animals in need and trusting us to care for them. We wish you all a happy and healthy 2020!
