Sacred Friend - Wildlife Rehab

She may have been the youngest of the six barn owls released by
Sacred Friend - Wildlife Rehabilitation on Dec 3rd but not the smallest.
The release of the six baby barn owls that came into their care on Oct 11th. They were all grown up and ready to go. All six banded prior to their release. They were released at two different farms; three on each. There were 3 females and 3 males. Now, they are back out into the wild doing what Barn Owls do.

While in their care, they ate over 4,000 mice.

 They're all about wildlife. They take in orphan, injured & sick wildlife and nurse them back to health and release them back into the wild. We are not paid by anyone to do so. We are state & federally licensed. Everything a wildlife rehabilitator does is paid completely out of their own pocket.

We are located at 6412 Natrona Ave, Norfolk, VA 23509.
Non-profit 501(c)3 is pending.
