California Ground Squirrel

Blossom is a California ground squirrel who was found as a baby and originally kept as a pet. Wild animals usually become destructive in a house as they mature and do not make good pets; also, it is against the law to keep native mammals like ground squirrels.

The owner of Blossom was persuaded to bring her to our wildlife hospital, and she’s been a delightful animal ambassador to our guests!

Help us care for Blossom by adopting her today!
