       The overall success rate for 2013 was 58%. That is a little above average 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 2013 the SWCC admitted 1894 animals representing 114 different species.

       1644 birds
       234 mammals
       11 reptiles
       5 amphibian and 1 spider.
       1398 baby animals & 17 eggs
       298 cat or dog mauls
       281 car (or other) collisions
       71 illness or parasites
       23 escaped exotic pets
       11 gunshot
       19 trap injuries
       6 oiled or coated

       Unfortunately 282 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 1612 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 27 animals were still at the SWCC and 649 animals had been released.
