Rescue

It's safe to say that this little girl is a bit of a miracle...

Found soaking wet and hypothermic, she was barely clinging on to life. Quickly rushed back to the centre in a warm car, she was handed straight over to Alannah, our Hospital Manager, who spent several hours getting her dry and gently warmed back up.

As with any victim of hypothermia, it is hugely important not to warm the body too quickly. As tempting as it is to get them warm as soon as possible, this can easily cause her fragile state to crash, and everything must be taken slowly to give her the best possible chance.

Rehabilitation

Amazingly, the little girl didn't give up and, slowly but surely, started to come back to us... It took a lot of time and care, but today you'd never know just how bad she was!

Now looking much brighter and walking and feeding well, we are beyond delighted at her progress!

After a period of monitoring to ensure all was well, she has joined some of our other cubs and is looking so much better!
