Friends and supporters of TCWC,
Amador and Calaveras counties are heavily populated with wildlife, making our area even more majestic and beautiful. Deer, foxes, skunks, raccoons, opossums, squirrels, rabbits and large and small birds, just to name a few, all call Amador and Calaveras home. As the Butte Fire comes under containment, many wildlife critters will be in need of rehabilitation. Tri County Wildlife Care, serving Amador, Calaveras and Eastern San Joaquin counties, will need your help with the aftermath of this disaster.
As always, we thank you for your continued support. Please stay safe, our thoughts are with all of those affected, human and animals alike.

The mountain lion kitten that was rescued on Sept. 13 in Calaveras County has found a new home at a permitted restricted species facility in Central California.
Over the past week at the CDFW’s Wildlife Investigation Lab, the kitten has stabilized well and is making a good recovery. The injuries to its paws and eyes are healing, its appetite is increasing daily and bodily functions are returning to normal. Staff is hopeful for a full recovery.
At its new home, the kitten will have access to regular veterinary care as needed and will eventually serve as an educational conservation ambassador to the public. CDFW will let the facility make their own public announcement when they are ready.
CDFW wishes the feline well in its new home and reminds the public that if they find wildlife in distress to call their CDFW Regional office.
Below are a few more pictures of the kitten leaving CDFW’s facility.
