Open Freezer Door


PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) A local wildlife rehabilitation center is in need of fish to help feed animals that are being treated there.  The Oahe Wildlife Rehabilitation Center has an immediate need for fish to feed wildlife which are in the care of local veterinarian-Dr. Virginia Trexler-Myren.  Dr. Trexler-Myren and the staff at All Creatures Animal Hospital offer no cost medical treatment for birds of prey and other wildlife which have been injured or have become sick.  After the animals are healthy again, they are returned to the wild.  Currently, several birds of prey and a pelican are being cared for at the facility.  All types of fish, either fresh or frozen, can be dropped off at All Creatures Animal Hospital at 1415 North Harrison in Pierre between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. or by calling 945-2911 to make arrangements.  Although the fish can be old or freezer burned, it can not be spoiled.  If the center doesn’t receive donations soon, it will run out of food for animals being treated by Friday.
