Patients of the day: Eastern Gray Squirrels This is not a common species we get at WCA so it's always a special day when we get them. These two siblings were orphaned and could not be reunited with mom so they will receive the care they need and eventually be released back into the wild
Patient of the day: a baby Western Gray Squirrel Fun fact: baby squirrels will ball up, like in the first picture, so mom can easily pick it up and move it

Patient of the day: Mexican Free-tailed bat. This bat, like all the bats we receive, will be going to @norcalbats where they get the specialized help they need. Wildlife rehabilitation is a community effort in many ways and we appreciate all the help from the public and other organizations.
