Wildlife Rehabilition

Over the years Windward Animal Hospital, Dr Stewart Colby, has been committed to the betterment of animal welfare and to the community. One way of the many ways of giving back to the community has been through his Wildlife Rehabilitation License obtained through the State of Georgia Department of Natural Resources & the decision to provide free services for injured and orphaned local wildlife in need of medical treatment.

With great sadness, we have recently had to change our policy on wildlife intake and limit it to existing customers ONLY.  From our existing customers, we will take in wildlife that has become sick, injured or orphaned for the purpose of rehabilitation and release back into the wild.  All such wildlife will be released into its proper environment as soon as it can survive on it’s own.

Continuing his dedication to wildlife and it’s welfare, Dr. Colby offers his expertise to the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Dahlonega, Georgia. Thanks to his relationship with the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve, Dr. Colby has had the opportunity to work with many exotic animals including lions, tigers, zebras, koala bears and more.

Please Note: No information can be released about any wildlife once it is placed in the care of the Windward Animal Hospital. This is the normal policy for free services rendered.
