At the wildlife hospital we encourage people to phone for updates. Kind of our way to say thank you for rescueing the animal and going through the effort of bringing it in for treatment.The woman at the rescue gave me her newsletter, and some business cards. Do you think she would mind if I called in a few weeks to ask how he was doing? When would a dove normally be ready to go free on his own?
We also try to get the donors involved with the release once the time comes.
