Cute Baby Animals

I was doing a little spring cleaning on my hard drive this morning and came across some photos I had taken at PAWS Wildlife Center, so I thought I'd celebrate the first day of spring by posting a few of my favorite cute baby animal photos.

This adorable abandoned baby raccoon was a patient at PAWS last summer. Raccoons are one of the many species that the wildlife center cares for.

Milk mustache anyone?

When I took this photo, I was so amazed that PAWS could care for and rehabilitate baby birds that were this small. As you can see, they are enjoying their meal.

I blogged about this little guy earlier, but this photo is a favorite of mine and I wanted to re-share it. This sweet baby river otter came to PAWS with a very sad, and 100% preventable story. I won't get into it all, but I will ask that you please consider humane options if you ever find animals sharing your space.

I know I post a lot about PAWS. I do so partly because I love animals, but also because they are such an incredible animal rescue that is located right here in the Puget Sound area and I want to share what they do. Did you know that since the PAWS Wildlife Center opened, they have cared for more than 100,000 wild animals?  I truly believe the work that they do is so very important. There are a number of reasons  I think it is our responsibility to help and care for animals in need, but to keep this brief, I won't go into my thoughts on that. I will, however, say this: I think kindness is the one of the most important qualities. I truly feel that just as cruelty to animals is a sign of something much more sinister, kindness to animals is a sign that humanity is capable of some good.
