Local Veterinarians

Wildlife rehabilitation requires a collective effort of skills & knowledge from professionals in the field of animal medicine. We are fortunate to have the cooperation and assistance of multiple veterinarians in the area who volunteer time outside of their regular practice to assist us in the care of our wildlife patients and animal ambassadors.

She is currently completing an externship in Maryland and continues to provide her invaluable expertise to us remotely.
