*HELP NEEDED!*
The wind storm knocked over our bird enclosures last night. We need your help to raise money to rebuild the enclosures, we need a contractor or construction workers who would be willing to volunteer to rebuild them and supplies.
We need to rebuild these enclosures by April 1st at the latest!
If you would like to help with this project please email us at volunteer@wildlifecareassociation.com

Two of the birds who were in this enclosure were able to fly so we think they manage to fly off, the one who couldn't fly was found this morning and was not injured.

Patient(s) of the day: baby squirrels
3 tiny baby squirrels on National Squirrel Appreciation Day!💕 These are patients 100, 101, and 102 of 2021😮

Remember, if you cut down a tree and find baby squirrels you can put the babies in a box with blankets for warmth and leave them at the base of the tree. Momma squirrel will come pick them up after you leave and she feels safe enough to grab her babies!

Wildlife lives because you care. The wide variety of birds was outstanding in our entries for the 6th Annual 2020 WCA Fall Photo Contest. One photo spoke of incredible power and wild beauty in our region's high flying variety of raptors. Congratulations to avid wildlife photographer Jody Reese of Fair Oaks for her entry of the Red Shouldered Hawk, our choice for 2020 Winner! We want to thank all the regional photographers who helped keep wildlife life alive with their care for nature and individual donations in submitting entries to the contest. Honorable mention goes to 11 year old Dylan Nguyen for his entry of a bird seen daily in our yards, parks and woodlands, the Blue Scrub Jay. See all the photo entries on the WCA Photo Album for our 2020 Fall Photo Contest.

Patient of the day: Merlin

A rare patient at WCA! This is a falcon species that tends to use surprise attacks to hunt their prey. They will also pair up to hunt large flocks of songbirds!😬
Tiny but mighty!

2020 has been a busy and challenging year for us here at WCA! This year we took in a total of 6,708 animals. Of those animals we received a total of 206 different species including 1 amphibian, 4470 birds, 2202 mammals and 30 reptiles. We could not save as many animals as we do without the help of our community. Thank you to our staff, dedicated volunteers, rescuers, donors, numerous wildlife centers we network with and anyone else who helped us during this difficult year. To celebrate the end of 2020 here is a handful of the animals we had the chance to help this season! We hope you enjoy. Cheers to 2021 and another year of saving wildlife! 🎉❤️
