Happy Ending Rescues

Bat World Sanctuary rescues up to a thousand bats each year, most of these bats are released back into the wild. The following stories are of select bats who have been rescued and released, or have been given permanent refuge at Bat World Sanctuary if they could not go back to the the wild.

Please note that time constraints do not allow us to update this page as often as we’d like so please be sure to check out our RESCUE LOG for a continual update.

Please note that the bat care specialists in the posts below are trained to work with bats and are vaccinated against rabies. If you find a bat, do not handle it with bare hands as it may bite in self defense. Please click here for help.
