Baby Animal Season Continues

By Shannon Perry

We have had quite a variety of baby animals coming into the clinic. Sometimes we are able to send them back from where they came, as in the case of a baby robin from an orchard. It was uninjured so we fed it and sent it back with the kind young man who found it to return in the vicinity where it was found.

Other babies have been injured or caught by a cat or dog and we do our best to nurture them along. Please consider keeping your kitty indoors. Here are some tips to help you both assess the need for help, and to keep wildlife safe from cats.
