Save wild animals’ lives by sharing your land

Our wildlife hospital and rehabilitation center cares for more than 4,000 orphaned, injured or sick wild animals every year.

Once they have completed their recovery, they are returned to suitable habitat as close to where they were found as possible.

You can help us save these animals' lives. If you have property you would be willing to use as a release site, please join our Shared Spaces Program.

Wildlife Patients of the Week: Douglas Squirrels

Douglas Squirrels

Five Douglas Squirrel patients were returned to the wild last week after spending a little over a month in care at our wildlife hospital.

They were all orphans who had fallen from their nests, and they were too young to survive on their own. 

Douglas Squirrels are native to Washington and are only found along the Pacific coast.
