    Working for Tomorrow
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    If only we didn't need to sleep!  This is something we often exclaim during the busy spring and summer at Fellow Mortals.  People have asked if we know how many steps we take in a day, since we move and walk nearly non-stop for up to 19 hours during our longest shifts. Fellow Mortals is one of the largest and...

    A Very Special Baby
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    "I have a gift for you!" exclaimed Mark Naniot of Wild Instincts, a wildlife hospital in northern Wisconsin, when he called.  He had just received a newborn orphaned beaver kit from a member of the public, umbilical cord still attached.  Mark knows that Fellow Mortals works regularly with beaver and that we have a...

    New Life, Renewed Promise
    By - Yvonne Wallace Blane - Project Leader
    With the warmth of spring, the door literally opens to a new beginning for dozens of wild creatures who spent the winter healing.  In the last couple of weeks, we have returned red-tailed hawks back to their homes, set migrating songbirds and ducks on their way to their breeding grounds and moved more animals along the...

    Moments, Memories & Miracles
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    The frigid winter air in rural Wisconsin is 20 degrees below zero.  The last few days we've been busy providing extra shelter, extra bedding, extra food. to the animals in our care outdoors.  This means putting up tarps and heavy plastic over exposed areas of outside caging, giving the deer and rabbits...

    One Squirrel's Story
    By - Yvonne Wallace Blane - Project Leader
    All you have to do is look at the faces of the interns right before releasing the hawks to freedom to see how 'success' is most easily measured in wildlife rehabilitation.  We are excited when the day comes that an animal who came to us starving or injured can go home again, and know that it is 'good bye,' but once in...

    Summertime at Fellow Mortals
    By - Yvonne Wallace Blane - Project Leader
    It's July 14, and we're at the peak of our busy season!  Every room and cage is filled, and the outside habitats have a waiting list for the many patients growing up or recovering inside the hospital. Nearly 500 animals are currently in care, including dozens of orphaned cottontails, songbirds, ground and tree...

    One Wild Bird's Story
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    Every individual animal that comes to Fellow Mortals has a 'cycle of healing.'  This is one month in the life of a Red-breasted Merganser. The merganser was found on March 5 in the road.  He was nearly 25 percent underweight, and had just been hit by a car.  X-rays taken back at the hospital show a skull...

    Thank you for providing A Place to Heal!
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    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...

    A Place to Heal
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    The first babies to be admitted every year are also the last to be released. Our foster great-horned owl, "Alberta," raised seven injured and orphaned owlets in 2012.  Great-horneds are already starting to court in the wild this time of year in the midwest, and if you're lucky enough to have owls in your neighborhood,...

    We're Grateful for You
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    As we approach Thanksgiving, it makes me think of you-- The gifts you've given to Fellow Mortals in the last year have provided care and comfort to so many precious lives after they were found and rescued after injury or orphaning and brought to Fellow Mortals: The great blue heron found paralyzed, unable to...

    Gallery of Guests
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    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...

    Wildlife Education on a Daily Basis
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    2012 has been very busy so far for the rehabilitators and interns at Fellow Mortals.  In some ways, that's a good thing because it means that people are aware of the wild creatures that share their backyards and their world and care enough to do something when a wild creature is found injured or orphaned. Most injuries...

    Hundreds of orphaned and injured wild animals have come and gone since I last wrote to you.  It's been a Very Busy Spring! The attached photos show just a few of our current patients, including a nestling great-horned owl that was admitted with a fractured leg and slipped tendons--now outside with our foster...

    Beneath Fur and Feathers
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    When a wild creature comes into care at Fellow Mortals, we always perform an initial examination, including looking for possible fractures. Sometimes injuries are obvious--a bone is protruding from the skin or a leg is not positioned properly, but other times fractures and other injuries are only indicated by the...

    Chicken Tractors & Red-tailed Hawks
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    We received an interesting call yesterday about a red-tailed hawk 'caught in a chicken tractor.'  A 'chicken tractor' you ask?  That was my question too, as before I go on a rescue I like to know what I can expect when I get to the animal. As it turns out, a 'chicken tractor' is a moveable cage, shaped like an...

    Wild Foster Parents raise orphans right!
    By - Yvonne - Project Leader
    Thousands of animals admitted to Fellow Mortals complete their entire rehabilitation process with us:  starting with critical care provided in the hospital, then progressing to a recovery room when they can feed themselves again and fractures are stable or injuries are healing.  From recovery they proceed to a...
