#tbt to last year when this Red Fox kit was just too tired to finish his meal. 🦊 After a long rehab with us, he was old enough to be released back to the wild!
This juvenile Osprey was brought to us after he appeared to have fallen. He is a fledgling and was probably injured the first time he attempted to fly. Thanks to our amazing vet team, he is recovering and growing stronger every day.
This big guy was found under a car at #marylouscoffee. He was not injured, so the same day he arrived, he was released back to the wild in a safer spot! (Swipe left to see his release) #snappingturtle
This Cory’s Sherwater came to us from @offshoreanimalhospital on Nantucket (courtesy of @hylinecruises ) with slight neurological issues. After several days of nutritional support, anti-inflammatories and pain medicine, he is almost ready to be returned to the wild! #teamwork
#fbf To this Norther Gannet who had been found on a golf course last year, which is not the Gannet’s natural habitat. Our vet team determined this incident was a behavioral stranding, this bird likely landed on the golf course by mistake and couldn’t find its way back to the ocean. Thanks to our amazing staff, the bird was cared for until it regained its full strength and later released in the open ocean, where it belonged!
Did someone say “Breakfast!!”? These orphaned Virginia Opossums will each have 50 teeth as adults, but for now, they are still enjoying formula.
We’ve had an extremely warm summer so far, but this juvenile Herring Gull knows how to keep himself cool! 💦
Our hidden cage-cam captured these two enjoying their enrichment activity to the fullest!
This Merganser is growing up quickly. Now, he is learning to fish in our indoor pool. #notababyanymore
Our vet tech is administering subcutaneous fluids to this baby orphaned Virginia Opossum and her siblings. #savinglives #wildliferehab
These orphaned juvenile raccoons are certainly enjoying their enrichment activity! 🍏 #bobbingforapples
This Short-billed Dowitcher was admitted by the #Barnstable Department of Natural Resources with some head trauma. After a few days of supportive care, we were able to release him back to the wild! (Swipe for that video)
These two Red Fox kits were rescued from a well earlier this year by Hingham Animal Control. 🦊 They were taken to our affiliate #newenglandwildlifecenter and treated for lead toxicosis. After several weeks of supportive care, chelation therapy and vaccinations, they are doing great and were transferred to our large outdoor fox enclosure. Watch to see what the hidden cage-cam recorded of their arrival.
This Eastern Screech-Owl just returned from an ophthalmologist appointment at Turfs Veterinary Hospital, that went very well. Our vet tech is administering some anti-inflammatories and pain medicine, so he should be feeling better soon!
They grow up so quickly! These orphaned Canadian geese were admitted last month and are now old enough to be returned to the wild. #notbabiesanymore
