By December 11, 2014May 5th, 2015Wildlife Rehabilitation

This orphan eastern grey squirrel was admitted late in the season, and was emaciated, dehydrated, and covered with fleas. After more than a month in care at TWC, he is growing strong and healthy, his fleas are gone, and he`s enjoying daily hand-feedings of nutritious formula. With his older roommate, he’s been learning how to nibble on, forage, and hide nuts and seeds in his enclosure.
