Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital

Fellow Mortals is more than a place. It is a living philosophy based on the belief that encouraging compassion in humans toward all life brings out the finest aspects of our humanity. Fellow Mortals provides excellent medical care to injured and orphaned wild animals entrusted to the hospital by the public. Fellow Mortals continues to advance treatment for the most critically injured and compromised animals admitted for care, demonstrated by a continued high rate of recovery and release back to the wild.

Fellow Mortals is honored to announce that we have two photographs in the Global Giving 2012 Photo Contest in the Give Green category!

Starting tomorrow, August 1, 2012 at Noon EDT, you can vote for both of Fellow Mortals' photos.

Just go to the photo contest page, scroll down to the portrait of the Red-tailed Hawk and click 'vote' and then find the picture of the Cottontail Rabbit and click 'vote' again.  How easy is that?

The photos you will be looking for appear in this Special Report.

You only need to vote once in this contest--but please tell your friends and share our links on Facebook.

The one photo with the most votes overall at Noon EDT on August 15, 2012 will be awarded a $1,000 bonus to support the project's work, will be featured on the GlobalGiving homepage for a full day and will be highlighted in GlobalGiving's social media outreach. The runner-ups in each of the categories will each be featured for a full day on the GlobalGiving homepage and will be highlighted though GlobalGiving's social media outreach.

This bonus would make a real difference for all the hawks and cottontail rabbits in care at Fellow Mortals' hospital today.  Let's see how fast the hawk can fly and how far the rabbit can run!

Many thousands of animals have come and gone at Fellow Mortals over the last 27 years, but a picture of any one individual brings back his or her story in full detail.

We'd like to share some of our favorite pictures with you, along with some stories. 

The thing to remember as you look at these images is that you are helping to make change possible every day because of your gifts to Fellow Mortals.

Thank you!

Benjamin, a screech owl, came to Fellow Mortals as a nestling with a fractured wing.  Although he would never be free, he ensured other healthy babies would be free--and wild--and raised dozens of young screech owls with his companion, Bonnie, during the 16 years he lived with us.

Millie, a white-tailed deer, came to Fellow Mortals as a fawn.  Toes on two feet were fractured and surgery was required.  She healed well and lived at Fellow Mortals for many years afterward.

Pretty, an immature red-tailed hawk, was found with two fractured wings that did not heal.  While she was with us, we gave her the time to enjoy the beautiful summer in a large enclosure with soft green grass and a view of the sky.

Kesha, a beaver, was injured when just a week old and arrived with a mortally-injured sibling.  She spent the first year of her life alone, but was then joined by a wild male beaver in her second year.  The two were released back to the wild together when Kesha reached maturity.

Mother Goose was another poor soul with terrible injuries suffered when she was hit by a car.  Her life with us was not long--but during that time she saved the life of the little gosling with her, who had lost her parents and all her siblings to another tragedy involving motor vehicles.

Hunny bunny was one of hundreds of cottontail rabbits brought to Fellow Mortals in 2010.  All cottontails are unique and we learn to identify them as individuals early on.  Through weighing and careful monitoring of what and how much they eat, we watch them grow to finally leave us for the beautiful woods and meadows of the wild world.
