My first six months as the veterinary intern at the Wildlife Center of Virginia have been very memorable! I can hardly believe December is here and now nearly gone; time flies when you are having fun.

My love and fascination with Eastern Hog-nosed Snakes began in May 2011 when one was admitted to the Wildlife Center as a patient.
His English was very broken, but his compassion and motivation to elicit help from me was not.
Being an animal care volunteer at the Wildlife Center is such a privilege and every day brings different challenges.
When I was hired as the newest member of the front desk team in mid-March of this year, I was excited to get to work. Soon, my excitement turned to panic.
Bottle-feeding black bear cubs is definitely one of the highlights of my wildlife rehabilitation career thus far. But no matter how many cubs I feed, they could never compare to the three tiniest bear cubs I have ever seen!
I have been a volunteer transporter with The Wildlife Center for a few years now, mainly doing bird and squirrel transports a few times a year. This year, however, was my favorite by far.
Well, it happened again. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the birth of 2015 but in a blink of an eye, 2016 is knocking on the door.
While 2015 was one of the busiest years I can recall since starting at the Wildlife Center, it has been full of mostly happy memories. It has been chock-full of projects in the Development Department and we are pleased to have so many accomplishments under our belt!
I don’t think I’ve ever held a snake before this year, even though I love looking at the various snakes that inhabit my garden and the many snakes you can find in nature if you are quiet.
