Good season!

Posted by Mary Namit on September 23, 2012 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (1)

Well... as of today all the babies are juveniles set free in the Mt. Hood National Forest!

 The last litter of skunks romped off in to the forest litter, happily exploring their huge new home away from humans.  Thanks to the donations folks made, we were able to repair pens, put roofs on them before winter, and feed and care for all the animals that came to us this season.

Thanks for all the help  to get us to this point!

Pens get new roofs !

Thanks to our generous donations, we have now completed the refurbishing of chainlink on the bottoms of 4 of the pens.  We have also finished the roofing of two of the pens.  With our unpredictable weather swings this year, it has made the toddlers much more comfortable! Pictures will follow!

New fencing for outdoor pens

Posted by Mary Namit on April 5, 2012 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

 Well.... the snow has lifted...the daffodils are popping....and I see signs of skunks afoot already!  Our unusual winter seems to be affording them an earlier than usual interest in investigating.  We have been very fortunate with securing 2 grants that will allow us to buff-up the floors of our pens for this season.  

    If you know of a good source for galvanized chain-link fencing... we would love to hear about it!

Stay tuned as I think this...

Check out the pics of the August babies then...  and today.  All 5 survived and are thriving.  They are getting ready to be released back in to the wild...away from cars that claimed their mom's life.  

Late babies doing great!

Late babies... the five little ones that came from Sandy in August are beautiful, robust, and growing like weeds!  I'll post some pics of them soon.  All 5 are getting big and curious about the out of doors.  They were only a little over a 100 grams when I got them and now they are over a 1000g...they are starting to stomp and do all the safety behaviors needed to be out on their own.  Don't get between them and their mice at dinner time!!! Yahooo.... another successful li...

Babies everywhere!

 Well the season came a bit later than usual what with the cooler temperatures! We had 25 baby skunks all doing well.  Most have been orphaned due to interventions with cars.  Mom gets hit trying to take the family on an outing for food or lodging and the babies stay near mom's body.

 Other babies came to us after mom was either trapped or shot and then the homeowners find babies wandering without mom to care for them.  One little female was found in Salem just ...

Thinking of the upcoming season..

    Well... now that the holiday hussle and bussle is done, we are going to be looking at supplies for the babies that will need our help this season.  The season usually starts to get in to motion for us the end of May and then blossums in June when more wildlife come in to contact with people or moms start taking babies out for little adventure trips.

    We are still collecting wooden corks and bottle caps  for sale on the Internet.  This ...

Late babies...

Last night a call came in from Silverton about baby skunks.  They had trapped 6 babies as they were trying to get to the water fountain in their backyard.  No mom was spotted and the babies had been investigating the yard for a couple of days.  They are very hungry, full of fleas, and were v...

New babies

Posted by Mary Namit on July 20, 2010 at 2:23 PM Comments comments (1)

We just got 4 new baby skunks in.  The little one is 170 grams.  That's about the size of a 6 week old kitten.  Mom was found dead on the side of  the road.  The babies had been wandering across the road to hide and then go back to mom's body.
