URGENT APPEAL
Do you have less than 2 minutes to help us today?
 
With your help, we can win a $25,000 grant - and all you have to do is watch and like a short video. Starbucks #Upstanders is giving away two grants to deserving organizations. Our center was nominated for this generous funding by a Starbucks partner (employee) and we only have until October 31 to keep the Buzz and the lead.
 
PLEASE help us today. Did you know our annual operating budget is $325,000? We have cared for almost 40% more animals this year already, and this grant funding is greatly needed. It's easy, follow the instructions below.

Patient Highlights
 
 
 
Northern Pygmy-Owl - this little guy came in from the Lake Stevens area on 10/13. He was attacked by a cat, and had some puncture wounds.
People often call us and say they found a “baby owl”, because these guys are so small. But, this is an adult owl and he likes to eat - a LOT. They may look tiny and cute, but they are angry little things! We like them that way too!! (Top photo: Notice the size difference between him and his mouse. Bottom photo: Looking out the bars of our ICU enclosure. See his little talons gripping the bars?)
 
This Red-tailed hawk was found on the side of the road. He had been hit by a car and suffered a large laceration to his chest. It is healing well and we hope he will be able to be released soon.
 
 
 
One of two Glaucous-winged gulls that were released this week. We have had a couple of juvenile gulls in our care since August. They were too young to fly and were found alone in parking lots, lost and unsure of what to do or where to go. (Above: one takes off over the water. Second photo: The two together in our enclosure.)
