The hospital received 45 animals last week. The total number of animals for 2012 was 5565 (244 more than 2011).

Thinking about making New Year’s resolutions? Think about helping wildlife in your backyard in the coming year. Keep cats indoors. Don’t use sticky traps or rodent baits. If you use bird netting, make sure it is secure and off the ground. Use pesticides sparingly or not at all. Keep your bird feeders clean. Help the wildlife hospital by reducing the number of injured and sick wild animals that need care.
