Fellow Mortals provided care for 1692 animals at the hospital in 2013, more than in 2011. 71 percent were successfully rehabilitated and released.
Our busiest months were May, June and July, when we admitted 1,042 of our patients.
Animals came from 90 different cities and 14 different counties.
Every success is cause for celebration, but we are especially gratified at the successful rehabilitation, release and subsequent successful integration into the wild of two beaver admitted in 2009--one an orphaned female and one an injured male yearling, who were introduced after the male had healed from his injuries and then released together last summer. The pair recently made an appearance near their lodge during a warm spell, after making it through their first winter in the wild.
This story--and many more, have been made possible thanks to your gifts. Often, when funds are low, it is the donations received from Global Giving that provide a 'safety net' and provide the funds for food and supplies needed by our wild patients.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to what we can accomplish together in 2013!
