Neuter Day

We are frequently asked why we neuter the male fruit bats that we rescue. The reason is that we would soon run out of space if the bats we rescued were allowed to reproduce. Unfortunately, fruit bats in the US cannot be released as they are not from the US, and getting them back to their original countries is not feasible. We are so very fortunate to have Tad Jarrett, DVM, our veterinarian of over 25 years, help us on-site with neutering the male fruit bats and attending to other medical issues when they arise.
