A HAPPY NEW BEGINNING...Carol received a call from Arnold Vet about a Canada Goose all wrapped up in fishing line and missing a leg. Donna brought the goose to TCWC and prosthetist Mike Link of Hangar Orthopedic in Reno who works on people during the days and critters in the evenings made "Arnie" a prosthetic leg that fits perfectly. We are working on the permits to keep this bird as an education and surrogate parent bird.
Why bother with a Canada Goose you might ask??? Lots of reasons, but probably most of all to try in a small way to make up for the human impact on our local wildlife. Please donate to help us save more...pawspartners.org or TCWC, P.O. box 367, Jackson, Ca. 95642

Hi! This is so wonderful! Greetings from Finland. We have a goose here in Finland with the exact same injury for the exact same reason and we would love to be able to help him! Would you be so kind to give us information on where you got the prosthetic made? Thank you so much and bless your heart!
