Animal rescue happens one life at a time—and no life is too small to be worth saving.
A tiny Northern Mockingbird was brought into the California Wildlife Center (CWC) with a foot condition that made it difficult for the poor thing to walk, perch, or grasp objects. Her unknown injury caused her feet to knuckle, a common condition in young birds.

'It usually takes a week or two of wearing the snowshoes before their feet are back to normal," Duane Tom from CWC told The Dodo.
By all accounts, the snowshoe operation has been a success. Soon the sweet bird will be reintroduced to the wild, free to take to the skies and entertain us all with her song.
