Wildlife Rehabilition


The Windward Animal Hospital is committed to the betterment of animal welfare and to the community. One way of doing so is by being a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

Here at the Windward Animal Hospital, 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 its own.

The decision to dedicate a portion of the Vet Practice to the rehab of wildlife was made early on by Dr. Colby.  His love for all animals has made it an easy decision for him to dedicate a large portion of his profits to the care & keeping of the wildlife.

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.
