The nursery area houses baby animals that need multiple feedings per day, an outside heat source, medications.
This area houses baby songbirds and bats. These animals require feedings every 30 minutes throughout the day
This equipment houses tiny neonates that are furless or naked that require humidity and ambient temperatures
Gas anesthesia, heated table and other amenities give our patients a better chance at a second chance in the wild.
Our lab allows us to run fecals, CBC’s, blood smears, glucose, specific gravity, differentials and lead testing in house
Our portable radiology allows us to get digital images in minutes that can be evaluated by our radiologists via internet
Washing, Drying and Cage Cleaning
We do 20 + loads of laundry a day.
Our specially designed snake cages provide heat, humidity and a safe haven for recovering reptiles
Rat and Mouse Room

Food Prep Frig

Side Flight Pen
Used for test flying and short term stays or for animals that need to be isolated from high traffic areas
Squirrel Hackouts and Songbird Aviary

All of our mammal pens are species specific so we avoid cross contamination
This pen houses 30 raccoons at one time and is isolated at our facility in order to remove these animals from human sights and sounds
Our laying hens give us eggs which are one of the components of some of the wild animal diets
These pens are situated deep in the woods. We raise bobcats, fox and coyotes here
Our amphitheater is a spot for outdoor education and everyone’s favorite the OWL Prowl
These perches are placed along the trail so that we can give outdoor programs about our native wildlife
