Someone found this mama and her precious babies on an on ramp to a freeway. The entire ducky family was successfully rescued and brought to us! These guys will be thoroughly examined by our staff to make sure they are all 100% healthy before being taken to a safe location for release. Thank you to everyone involved for making this possible! #WCA #ducklivesmatter #ducklings
Don't worry little buddy! We are here to help! Did you know? A squirrel's front teeth never stop growing. Chewing on hard nuts keeps them worn down to the right length. #WCA #squirrels #wildlife
Desert Cottontail kits 😍 Rabbits will build a shallow nest of grass and fur in grassy areas near bushes or trees and often right out in the open. These nests tend to look like patches of dead grass, or dead spots, in your yard. Be careful while doing yard work! #WCA #wildlifecareassociation #kits #BUNNIES

Beautiful Great Horned owl had a barbed wire stuck at the base of his wing. Our vets are amazing with helping getting guys like this get back on their feet! Or wings 🙂 #greathornedowl #wca #wildlifeassociation
When you can have up to 13 babies sometimes it seems im-possum-ble for a mom to catch a break. #wildlifecareassociation #wildliferehab #oppossum
This Chukar is a little far from home. While they can be found in parts of Northern California they aren’t a normal visitor of the Sacramento region. This snazzy game bird prefers the dry country where it can show off it’s amazing agility and speed.
Good food, good mood 🍽. I think this house sparrow is enjoying their evening meal. Did you know house sparrow’s natural diet is about 80% seeds/grains and 20% insects.
Did you know that Double-crested cormorant are not fully waterproof even though they are adept swimmers and masterful fishers. This is why you will often see them standing on the shore with their wings spread out to catching the breeze and sun.
