Weekly hospital update–week of March 18

The hospital received 62 animals last week, bringing the total for this year to 462.

Five of the patients were young mourning doves. Mourning dove babies leave the nest 12-14 days after hatching. They can’t fly well yet and spend a couple of days on the ground while the parents continue to feed them. They are especially vulnerable to danger for these few days–keep cats indoors to give them a chance.
