Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation's mission is to return sick, injured or orphaned animals back to their natural habitat and promote an awareness and appreciation of Utah's diverse wildlife for future generations through education.

They are a non-profit organization, supported soley by donations. One of a handful of state and federally permitted wildlife rehabilitator's in the state of Utah, they cover, geographically the largest area in the state. Those that work there cooperate closely with, but do not work for Wildlife Resources.

During this time of year, things are typically slower, receiving fewer patients than throughout the rest of the year. Second Chance is a 24/7 facility, offering simple supportive care all the way through complicated surgeries, rivaling many human orthopedic procedures.

One of the centers current patients is Moon, adult female Screech owl who came to the center from Moab. She is recovering from head trauma and two broken bones in her left wing, most likely from impact from a vehicle. She is expected to remain at the center until around March.
