The Cheyenne Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation
The Cheyenne Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation started as an outgrowth of the wildlife work done by Cheyenne Pet Clinic. The organization is funded by the Cheyenne Pet Clinic and by the generous donations from the public. Wildlife patients are treated at no charge to the person presenting the animal to the clinic. Over the years, most every species of Wyoming's native wildlife, especially birds, have been presented for treatment. Everything from sparrows to armadillos to mule deer to golden eagles have been treated. Many of these animals are injured due to human/animal interactions. Some are hit by cars, some have flown into windows or have been shot, while others may have been attacked by dogs or cats. With so many varied animals and injuries, not all patients can be released back to the wild and have to be euthanized. Even with all the problems, the release rate at the Cheyenne Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation is 35-40% - an excellent statistic. Over two hundred wildlife cases are seen yearly at our clinic.
