Got this little friend in this evening, which is a neat break from our squirrely friends. Thanks to Renee for getting this guy to safety. This ball of (angry) fluff will be heading down to a federal rehab facility on Monday.

This adult was transferred to our care from our friends all the way in Tenesee Ziggy's Tree! They did a great job stabilizing this bird before transport. Our other friends over at Saloli Center for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (Cori) over-nighted this beast and meet up with our very own, Randi who brought the bird the rest of the way! It really does take a village!

This poor bird was likely electrocuted after colliding with power lines - you can see the black coloration on his right wrist. He suffered a dislocated elbow likely from the fall. We will be getting Radiographs done to see the extent of the trauma. For now, this bird is resting comfortably, and eating us out of fish as we speak!

Are your Halloween decorations wildlife friendly? Protect wildlife with your choices and look closely when passing outdoor decorations to ensure no animals are ensnared. Many innocent critters are accidentally trapped in fake spiderwebs.
If an animal is in trouble, call the Appalachian Wildlife Emergency Hotline at 828.633.6364, option 1, or contact a wildlife rehabilitator in your area. Resource:

Thanks again for always supporting our work helping wildlife in Western NC! We have 2 fawns currently in splints, 6 on daily medications, and 15 already moved up to the barn.

Always remember to only intervene with wildlife if they truly need your help- fawns are left alone during the day by their moms to keep them hidden and protected from predators (humans included!) 🦌

Special thanks to for getting this baby to us!

Fawn season is here! Please help us give fawns the best chance possible: with their mom! If you or someone you know finds a fawn that does need help, contact a licensed fawn rehabilitator ASAP.

Together we can help keep them wild 🦌🦌🦌🦌

Wild animals— particularly rabbits, fawns, and birds— are prone to a condition called capture myopathy. This is a complex disorder that results from the stress of being chased, captured, or even simply held by a human being. Although there are usually no signs of disease or injury, these animals simply die.

Please: never capture or handle an animal unless instructed to do so by a wildlife rehabilitator. Otherwise, you run the very real risk of killing an animal that you intended to save.

Y’all. Baby season will be here before you know it! Right now we are focusing on stocking formula, medications and working toward a new incubator. We are launching a fundraiser today. Hope you will consider helping animals in WNC.

Saloli CARE is a wildlife rehab center that specializes in squirrels, but accepts most local wildlife. We also offer education through online videos and in person.

This is something we see often— raccoons curled up with their heads pressed against the ground, their eyes shielded from sunlight.

To well-meaning bystanders, it’s easy to project human experiences onto these situations. People assume they’re frightened, cold, or even depressed. Unfortunately, the reality is usually far worse than that.

Animals head-press when they have terrible headaches. Ever have a sinus headache and felt a little better when pushing the heal of your hand against your forehead? Head-pressing is a lot like that.

Raccoons rarely have severe headaches for benign reasons. In the best-case scenarios, head-pressing in a raccoon is a sign of a bad concussion. In the worst cases, it is a symptom of inflammation in the spine and/or brain, caused by a viral infection.

Canine distemper is the most common infectious cause of head-pressing in raccoons. In fact, out of nearly 100 patients we’ve seen with head pressing as a symptom, every single one was suffering from canine distemper.

If you see a raccoon pressing its head against the ground, please do not touch or approach it, but contact your local animal control, game wardens, or wildlife rehabilitators for assistance.

Uu jeh sdee- according to Garfield Long is how you say the Opossums name in Cherokee. That has to do with the way it shows it’s teeth and looks as if it’s smiling or laughing. The same name for pig was also used but because of confusion- a lot of folks just say this word.
Last week we released five (3 males and two females) into Cherokee tribal reserve after they were saved by a citizen and cared for by Saloli Care for about 2 months. Garfield says a few word in our language. A great way to release animals back into the Cherokee environment.

It’s been a very busy bunny week. But gosh they are cute.
🐰
are the wild species of rabbit in this area, but don’t let that fool you in to thinking they are easily domesticated. Very few survive in captivity and I am only aware of one that has done so successfully for any period of time. 🐇
This time of year is baby season. If you find a bunny that seems to be abandoned, call your local rehabber and speak to them about how to proceed before moving the baby. Often a rehabber can help you get the baby back to mom, or even tell you if the “baby” may be able to survive on its own. People are often surprised by the size of a rabbit that has left the nest.

When decimates your apple tree, the squirrels in our care get a treat. With a bonus oak limb from another road to boot. We also provide dirt baths and other natural items in their enclosures.

Enrichment for captive/rehab animals is very important. Keeping the body and mind busy keeps the body and mind healthy.

BIG WITCH OVERLOOK off Blue Ridge Parkway
Friday 8/17
Found and sadly still there
Black and Brown Coonhound, Male, unaltered. Nylon collar, high end tracking collar. I tried to earn his trust for over an hour. Seems to be not injured, very skittish. Could not get close enough to get phone number. People are leaving food and water for him.
**picture is not actual dog, just fir attention** please share and help get this boy home.
It takes a lot of people to help wildlife here in Western NC. We are so thankful for Saloli Center for Animal Rehabilitation and Education for taking these 7 baby for continued care. 5 girls and 2 boys!
When hurricanes and other weather tragedies strike, wildlife is affected too! When fellow rehabilitators along the coast put out a call for help, those of us out of the hurricane zone jumped into action. It’s a team effort! The time and dedication from multiple facilities; Carolina Waterfowl Rescue , Edith Allen Wildlife Sanctuary Inc. , May Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at Lees McRae College, Saloli Center for Animal Rehabilitation and Education and home based rehabilitators made it possible to move 100 orphaned squirrels out of harms way and into care. Our urgent care facility is caring for 50 of these orphans along with the local injured and orphaned squirrels we receive daily. Please consider helping by purchasing from the Wishlist: https://www.appalachianwild.org/wishlist.html or by purchasing much needed formula, as we are going through nearly 3 lbs/day! http://bit.ly/weneedformula or http://bit.ly/variousformulasizes
