       The overall success rate for 2009 was 68%. That is quite good for wildlife rehabilitation. We cannot release any animal unless it is able to fend for itself in its natural environment. Most of our animals do not do well in captivity. All have serious problems or they could not have been caught and brought in.
       In 2009 the SWCC admitted 1792 animals representing 126 different species.

       992 birds
       273 mammals
       35 reptiles
       1 amphibian
       1 spider
       1089 baby animals
       285 cat or dog mauls
       220 car or window collisions
       50 illness or parasites
       31 escaped exotic pets
       18 gun shot
       14 poison
       11 illegal wild animal pets
       9 nesting tree cut down
       41 various problems

       Unfortunately 480 animals were admitted in hopeless condition. They were either dead on arrival or admitted with injuries so severe and irreparable that they were euthanized for humane reasons. They are not considered in the success rate. We attempted to care for 1312 animals.
       92 animals were transferred to other rehab centers, placed in zoos, adopted, or returned to their owners. Some of the animals we receive are escaped pets, such as red-eared sliders and parakeets. They are not released.
       At the end of the year 31 animals were still at the SWCC and 769 animals had been released.
