What do you call a turtle that spends a lot of time in rivers and on land?
A Pond Turtle!
Yes, a pond turtle and no, the name doesn’t really fit. Yes, they can be found in ponds, but also in rivers, streams, wetlands, lakes and in woodland habitats. They can be out of water and on land for upwards of 200 days a year. And sunning on logs and rocks.

Separation anxiety is fairly common and can result in destructive behavior. In this guide, we share how to break a dog’s separation anxiety based on our personal experiences.
What's in a name??? A lot if it makes our supporters feel less than AWESOME! We had a printing goof up and our newsletter went out with incorrect first names. Please forgive us and we promise to get it right the next time.
CHIRPS OF GRATITUDE
All the critters from Tri County Wildlife Care, especially the human ones, are singing, chirping and trilling their thanks to all of you for your extraordinary giving on Giving Tuesday 2018. You continue to help TCWC provide hours and days of medical care, safety, nurturing and love to local wild animals in need, giving them a second chance to be wild and free.
On top of that, your gifts continue a journey of enchantment for our local adults and kids as they meet our education raptors up close and personal. This glimpse into the wonderful wild world leaves a lasting impact and your generosity will forward that impact from generation to generation. We can’t thank you and the community matching partners enough. Amador Community Foundation, the Jackson Rancheria Band of Miwuk Indians, American Legion Post 108, Stan Lukowicz and the Highway House Restaurant & Bar provided the scaffolding and extra dollars that make all your donations stretch much further. The breadth and depth of support from our community brings harmony to our wild world.
We feel privileged to live here in the Sierra foothills surrounded by wildlife. As we co-exist, TCWC is committed to both of us thriving together. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 209-283-3245 if you need help with your specific wildlife situation.
Pesticides are meant to kill living organisms such as insects, invasive plants and fungi. But you and I are living organisms as well.

Many of our inspiring volunteers dropped by the center at 80 Ridge Road to share some snacks, stories and friendship at TCWC’s Volunteer Appreciation Get-Together on November 17. We laughed and ate, talked about future plans and family, shared animal and personal stories and simply had a great day. Margot handed our bird caregivers beautiful feathers she had designed and knitted and each feather was unique, reflecting something special about each caregiver.
Thank you to each and every special TCWC volunteer for who you are and all you do! We look forward to seeing you next year.
