Sponsor a Waterfowl Patient ($75)

Our waterfowl patients are certainly a demand on our resources! They require a great deal of water, including running water. When we receive waterfowl during the fall, they often can’t be returned to the wild in time to migrate and skirt the cold weather. In such cases, we will care for these patients until we can arrange a ride to warmer weather/open water, or wait until spring!

One of our current waterfowl patients is this snow goose! It came in with an injured foot all the way from Fort McMurray, and has undergone multiple surgeries to correct the issue. The goose will be in our care for the remainder of the winter until it’s foot is fully healed and the weather is right for release.
