These babies were found
and rescued by a very kind
employee of
in Ocala, Fl.
Instead of leaving them near
a busy road, she took the
time to help these babies. I
would like to thank a
wonderful teacher in Marion
County, Dave Norman, who
went out of his way to keep
these siblings together.
Thank you everyone who took
the time to help these babies.

the early spring of 2010.

LUCKY, The Feral Baby Boar!

After being contacted by a citizen,
(Thank you to Marion County Sheriff
Dept for providing our information),
we found our little feral boar, Lucky,
12 weeks old, under his dead
mothers arms. She was hit and
killed by a vehicle, she was part
potbellied pig. Poor Lucky had been
slightly injured when his mother
was hit by a car but about a week
before had been brutally attacked by
another feral Boar. When we found
him, he had gangrene already and
was saturated with maggots. He
clung to life for the first few days but
surprised us by making a full
recovery. He lost an ear and will
always need special care. He has
been placed with a loving forever
home with Kim Burnette!

The day Lucky came to us....
Sometimes we get in unusual
request, these wild rats were
transferred from another
Rehabilitator. However due to their
friendliness cannot be released but
will be placed in forever homes.
