On October 19th, Greenwood received a melanistic (black) fox who was badly in need of treatment. She had a severe case of mange, which was so far progressed that she could barely open her eyes. Mange is a horrific disease caused by parasitic mites that burrow into the skin resulting in itching and hair loss. It is often a death sentence for wild animals if there is nobody who can help. The disease leads to extended pain and suffering, which is a tragic way to die. When the…

Wildlife Wednesday is Greenwood’s annual online fundraiser where we appeal to supporters to help reach a specific monetary goal. This year we raised $20,000 to renovate our outdoor fox enclosure. The updates allow us to keep injured and orphaned foxes at Greenwood longer in the rehabilitation process instead of transferring them to another rehabilitator once they are ready to be moved outside!  For orphaned foxes kits, a raised ceiling will give them plenty of room to pounce and play. We are excited to see these little hunters thrive!…

The Elk mating season is approaching. That means hundreds of tourists will flock to Colorado to view this amazing wildlife event.

You can invest in a pair that really help you get a good view without the worry of spooking the animal in your direction. 2.If you can’t cover it with…

A baby raccoon may look like it could be a cuddly pet, but there are many reasons why they don’t belong on your couch.  Raccoons are like the other wild animals that inhabit Colorado, they will resort to instincts that help them survive. That means this fuzzy ball of cuteness could one day turn into an unruly house guest. We’ve heard stories where a raccoon raised from infancy got out and attacked a kid in their neighborhood, or bit the family dog. There are reasons why it’s illegal…

While Greenwood is an organization that prides itself on the rehabilitation of individual animals, we also hope our efforts benefit the entire ecosystem and it’s species. Species that are on the decline are categorized as “endangered” or “threatened” by Federal and State laws. They are meant to be protected under those laws. While Greenwood doesn’t often rehabilitate endangered animals, we do bolster Colorado’s wildlife in any way that we can. Because Endangered Species Week is here, we thought we might highlight the magnificent success of Lynx reintroduction into…
