Update from Jennifer Howard: 2019 – a winter of wildlife issues

Update from Jennifer Howard: This has been a  winter of wildlife issues. Young animals in need and older ones desperate. Procyon Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Centre is busier than normal for this time of year.

An adult coyote found hold up in a horse barn with severe mange. Owner made sure it got help. After 2 tries Procyon managed to get him with full co operation of the owner of the farm and even they attempted to get him into a trap. He was to smart as sick as he was. The survival mode was that strong. He would have frozen to death if it had of gone differently.

Raccoon found on side of road just lying there unable to move its back end. Hit by car. Now doing well. Other raccoons holding their own day by day. One here getting sub cue fluids. Teamwork. By caring loving hands.

Young opossums and even a porcupine.

A bunny someone thought would make a good pet surrendered. They don’t. They are wild.

Hopefully all these animals will recover to go free again.

The hard work of caring volunteers and donations from all of us is what keeps Procyon going.

Donations of money,food and towels flat sheets and stuffed animals from small to large for companions for those babies when spring arrives are always needed.

When taking photos of these animals I do not use a flash, they have enough to deal with.

Make 2019 a year of helping our wildlife friends and the centres who care for them.

Become a volunteer, donate, make a phone call for an animal in need. The rewards are endless.

Photos by myself and Sherry Jackson. Thanks Sherry.

 

DO YOU ENJOY WRITING? WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP THE ANIMALS AT THE PROCYON WILDLIFE CENTRE FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME?

Procyon survives on donations, fundraising and grants.

We currently are looking for people to assist our short staffed team of grant writers. Unfortunately a lot of funding opportunities for Procyon may be missed because we simply cannot keep up with the necessary paperwork to apply.

If you or someone you know would be interested in assisting with this crucial work, we would be grateful to hear from you. For more information, please contact us at .

HELP is in YOUR Hands.
