NEW ARC

North East Wildlife Animal Rescue Coalition is a non-profit organization. We are a group of licensed wildlife rehabilitators, and these are the tales of the injured and orphaned animals we care for until they are able to be released back into the wild.

Time for some fun!

The Wino's, Tilt, Whirl and Arnold are LOVING their new digs! The overwinters moved out, the pen was power washed and redecorated, and the older babies moved in. I don't think you need me to tell you how much FUN they are having!!
 


 
 





























The rest of the gang is outside as well, between the other 2 pens. A couple more will be arriving from another rehabber to join them within the week as well. We're not done yet though! Laurie just got an eyes closed baby the other day! And this little adorable bundle of baby was brought here a couple weeks ago by the ARL. He is just the cutest darn thing!!!
Both are too young to be getting released this fall. Looks like there will be an overwintering group this year after all....

The overwinters get released....FINALLY!

Later than planned after delays for many reasons, the overwinters have finally been released! Laurie and I dragged them through some woods...

......across a very large meadow....(those tiny round looking pines just in front of the large trees at the edge of the woods are taller than us to give you an idea how large the area is!)


....and into the woods....


.....where at last! Freedom! McFly and Henry took off into the woods...no hanging around for them, although we did hear them chattering to the gang occasionally. Roxy poked around nearby briefly then was gone, perhaps responding to her brothers. Tavi, Annie, Natty, Muffin, Digger and Munchkin stayed close by to explore the den boxes and feeding area.




As usual, no words are needed to tell you how much they were loving it!











Tavi was less than thrilled to begin with and wouldn't leave the carrier. Natty finally came over to give her some encouragement, and though she was hesitant to completely let go of that carrier....she finally did with no regrets! :)


















At last the hideous mosquitoes and horse flies drove us off! Good luck gang!
