Hospital update–week of April 15

The hospital received 106 animals last week, bringing the total to 810 for this year.

Even with the rains last week, it seems like spring has sprung. Lots of baby mammals were admitted for care: brush rabbit, cottontail, black-tailed hare, California ground squirrel and eastern fox squirrel. Baby birds were represented by mourning doves, Anna’s hummingbirds, mallards, lesser goldfinch, California towhee and great horned owl.
