Animal orphans

Stories from Langley’s Critter Care.

Orphaned twin bear cubs Mani and Hunter were rescued and brought to the centre last spring. Weighing in at only a few pounds when they arrived, they have been bottle fed special formula and gained weight and size. They will be released after hibernation in spring. Critter Care is the only facility able to take in cubs.

“They are doing great and slowing down. We need the weather to cool a bit more for them to go to sleep,” said Critter Care founder Gail Martin.

Critter Care has taken in four orphaned cubs this year. In all, the wildlife centre has helped 1,000 orphaned or injured mammals, including fawns, beavers, otters and raccoons. They do all this using donations and volunteer work.

Like other charities out there, Critter Care lost provincial gaming funding this year. Now the non-profit organization is asking for people’s support more than ever.
