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.

The MSPCA group.

On to group 2, with the 5 MSPCA babies. Mickey, Lefty, Righty and Snuggle are also in there, as well as various other singles from Waltham, Lowell and the ARL. The messiest group by far, though to be fair, it is the one pen with natural dirt flooring and all the rain has pretty much assured it will remain a muddy mess! (But they LOVE it!)

Big hams for the camera, but try and get a hold of them for any reason and it's not happening without a net and a battle! Gone are the days when I walk into the room and I can't get them off me,,,LOL! Now I can't get near them! This pen has a 10ft high section.  Once they realize I'm up to something it's all over for me. ;)

Abbott's group.

Lets take a look at all those babies growing up outside!
I'll start with Group 1, Abbott and Costello's group. They were joined by Thelma and Louise from Carol. A little shy at first, the girls are living up to their names and loving it! The 3 muskateers and Ricky are with them also. I think the wino's will be going at the end of the month, and this gang will move into the big pen once they do.

For now, it's all fun and games for this gang!

Stinkers!

The 6 older skunks were released a few weeks ago and the 4 younger ones moved into the big outdoor pen.
Here are the first 6 when they were first moved outside....they grow so fast!




Meanwhile the younger 4 were quite content eating and sleeping inside!








  
But I'm pretty sure they are loving it even more now that they are outside in the dirt...


.....and pigging out on all the wonderful donations from our TOTALLY AWESOME FRIENDS FROM WHOLE FOODS IN MELROSE!!!!!!! That deserves a post if it's own to do it justice so I'll continue that story soon.....



In the meantime, the big kids are loving their freedom while the younger kids are growing like weeds and getting ready to go soon!





In true skunk fashion, one final salute and into the underbrush they went!
