Squirrel begins life of hard labor … via Wildwoods Rehab


This is Delilah, our developmentally delayed grey squirrel. We normally don’t pet the animals in our care; we need to keep them as wild as possible. Delilah is a bit “special,” so we love her up.


We just got word that she has been accepted as an education animal at the Audubon Center of the Northwoods in Sandstone; Yay! We will be donating the materials for her display and Wildwoods staff and volunteers will be building this when it is time to move her. Dr. Jeanetta will be training the Audubon Center staff on how to trim down her mal-occluded incisors. We are so happy that our sweet girl has a permanent home!

From Wildwoods!

“Animals are not just in the backdrop of our own story, but at the center of the whole drama, and how we treat them is one of the great themes of the human story.” Wayne Pacelle, HSUS

“Many people think that conservation is just saving fluffy animals – what they don’t realize is that conservation is a war to prevent the human race from committing suicide.” Gerald Durrell (1925-1995)

AWWWWW! So cute!!!
I was afraid I was going to have to call you for some newborn bunnies, but I think the mom is going to stick it out despite her incredibly poor choice of nest (between a busy sidewalk and busy 3rd street).

And congrats to Delilah! (I saw the cute squirrel pics and checked out your website before I came back to read the post)
