Click through the images to see some of Greenwood’s successes for 2012!
April 22nd, 2011
Every year Greenwood sees a handful of orphaned baby Red Foxes. This year we have seen one that was left behind by it’s mother when a dog posed too much of a threat for her to return. We also had one come in with a severely broken leg when it’s mother was hit by a car carrying it across the road. Just recently, we were graced with Isis; this poor baby who was pulled from her den covered in mange; a mite that eats the skin of it’s victims. Isis is getting soothing oatmeal baths to relieve her itchy skin. Soon she will be fully recovered and be placed with the other kits so as to be properly socialized.
You can see more pictures of Isis and her “step-siblings” on our facebook page!

This American White Pelican arrived with fish hooks embedded in his beak and feet. Before he arrived, the rescuers removed fishing line that inhibited him from eating. He was emaciated upon arrival. He was eating up to 8 pounds of fish a day!
10-24-10 The Pelican was successfully released! Thank you to all his sponsors!

This beautiful girl was the victim of an all too common occurrence: Trash. She had become entangled in twine left on the ground and when trying to jump over a fence, was caught and left hanging overnight in twenty degree temperatures.
A healthy Red Fox will have no problem keeping themselves warm during these long, winter nights. But if their health is compromised and they are left exposed, they will not be able to survive. more…

This Double-crested Cormorant was admitted after the Lakewood tornadoes/hail storms a few months ago. His feet are very badly injured and he will have to remain in rehabilitation for quite awhile. He consumes hundreds of fish a day which adds up very quickly. By the time he is released, his rehabilitation costs will most likely end up being over $3,000. Any donations to help sponsor this beautiful bird are appreciated. Every donation counts!
THIS PATIENT WAS SUCCESSFULLY RELEASED 9-26-09!
Thank you to all his sponsors!
