I could not resist posting Violet's story. God Bless her little heart! So happy WAF came through for her and thank God the couple spotted her! I'm surprised they have to keep her 16-20 weeks! I thought it would be 6-8 weeks but I'm really happy they're taking their time with her!

an ounce of prevention, be sure when trimming trees that no nests or wild life are in the branches.. be aware not beware but rather be a ware
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Violet is precious indeed. I'm with John G. - thanks to rehabers. I took an injured squirrel to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre some years ago. He had 2 broken legs and was fixed up with purple bandages and recovered well.

This is both sad and adorable all wrapped up into one. If only all humans treated animals with this type of care.
