Greetings rehab supporters! We’d like to introduce more of our current rehab residents. Once again we were fortunate to be able to transfer some of our admissions to other facilities to lessen our overflow so they won’t be shown individually on the blog. The turtles shown here are now currently in our facility (with one exception).
After such a hectic season, we also offer our heartfelt thanks to the Roanoke Island Animal Clinic, our local veterinarian that provides emergency care for our patients no matter the time of day or night!
