“There will always be detours in the fascinating game called life. Find the path to your heart’s desires, and stay on course.”
― Elizabeth Parker,
We are going to title September 2015 at Dewdney, “The Wonderful World of Wildlife Rescue” because that is how we started this year’s Fall season. Take a looks at all the exciting animals we got to work with last month!
Where Did You Come From?
This juvenile pheasant was found with Injuries to its back. Pheasants are not native to BC so cannot be placed at wildlife rescue so Dewdney is rehabbing this animal.
The Best Laid Plans
No animal is too big or too small at Dewdney. This little field mouse was found in someone’s back yard. We are treating with pain meds and antibiotics.
A Wonderful Home for Bubbles & Squeek!
We are please to announce that we have found an amazing home for the little rescue Guinea Pigs we mentioned last month. Bon Voyage little guys, have a wonderful new adventure!
Gone to the Birds… Again!
September 9th was a crazy day at Dewdney Animal Hospital. So crazy, the mrtimes wrote about it! You can read the article here. To put things shortly, we ended up treating 3 birds in one day- a Great Blue Heron, a Coopers Hawk, and a Red Tail Hawk!
This Great Blue Heron ate a fish hook and needed immediate help. Lucky we were around to offer assistance! The bird was brought in by BCSPCA. We were able to remove the hook but as the video shows these animals are quite strong and dangerous. Eye protection when working with these animals is a must.
This Great Blue Heron was brought in by BCSPCA yesterday with a fish hook in its throat. We were able to remove the hook but as the video shows these animals are quite strong and dangerous. Eye protection when working with these animals is a must.

The Coopers Hawk
Sometimes we at Dewdney Animal Hospital shake our heads at the inhumanity of people. This small coopers hawk was shot out of the sky by someone with a pellet gun. The fall broke its leg and who ever left it to die. Thank you to Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey who went out of there way to bring in this bird and O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society
The Red-Tailed Hawk
The red tailed hawk is also doing well after surgery for a broken wing. This bird came from o.w.l. Orphaned O.W.L. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society
Reptiles on a Plane!
A big thank you to West Jet and Reptile Express in helping us to get “Minbindi” to his new home in Newfoundland. Minbindi is an illegal lizard that was surrendered to the conservation service and my staff have worked tirelessly to find him a permanent home. Bon voyage Minbin!
