The Wildlife Care Clinic is happy to share our latest release story with you!
This Mute Swan was separated from its partner and admitted to us a few weeks ago due to having a sublingual impaction. A sublingual impaction is a pouch that forms underneath the tongue which food then accumulates in, making it difficult to eat and drink. We removed the food from the pouch and gave it time to return to normal size, along with a few other treatments.
After our patient was returned to full health, these two love birds were finally reunited. As you can see, they were very happy to see each other!

It's time for another Wildlife Care Clinic DONATION DRIVE!
We are asking the Ames community to consider donating one or multiple items from our list below. This will help alleviate some of the costs that we have to spend on these common items, allowing us to further our treatment for patients!
During the week of February 7-11, we will be leaving flyers at the doors of neighborhoods containing a list of items that we are in need of for our upcoming baby season.
If you are willing to donate, all we ask is that you leave the item(s) on your porch/front door step on the dates listed below with the flyer attached so that we know it is for us, and one of our staff members, interns or volunteers will come collect it.
Pick-up days: February 12-18 after 11 AM
Drop offs at the WCC are also welcome on the days listed above! We would greatly appreciate any donation that you might be willing to give us. If you have any questions, please message us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we don't leave flyers in your neighborhood and you don't have time to stop by the clinic, don't worry! We also have an Amazon Wishlist. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/SZJNBUHSH9UR
Lastly, enjoy these photos of some of our orphaned patients from last baby season. They were all released back into their natural habitat. Donate to us and help more animals like them!
List of items we need:
Medical Cotton Swabs
Nitrile Gloves (all sizes)
Household Cleaners, Clorox Wipes
Highlighters & Dry Erase Markers
Petco Gift Cards
Larger Binder Clips
