This American Beaver was found on the side of the road in Sacramento. It was a very quiet and inactive. It had a few minor cuts and after treatment it was transferred to a home rehabber to rest and fully recover. While we are unsure about what exactly happened to this beaver, WCA is doing everything we can to give it the best chance at recovery. It is doing well and will likely be release to a suitable location in a few weeks. ... See MoreSee Less

Tim Garbarino- There are lots of beavers living in Lake Natoma, so I would imagine that there are also lots living up and down the American and Sacto rivers. This one probably took a beating from the white water currently running in all the rivers and creeks

Early this year this Cedar Waxwing was found in West Sacramento unable to fly. A concerned member of the public rescued the bird and brought it into our facility. A physical exam revealed that the bird had a fracture that prevented it from flying. Luckily, with a few weeks of cage rest and some time in an aviary this bird made a full recovery! It was released back to the area it was found and was able to fly free once again!

WCA is only able to help animals with the continued support of all of you. We greatly appreciate all the support we receive from the community!
