Hope for Wildlife
Season 7: Ep: 3 "Going It Alone"
This year is a turbulent time of change and renewal at Hope For Wildlife. Hope and her team are caring for more than 3,000 injured and orphaned wild animals – more than ever before. The workload has outgrown Hope’s tiny 100-year-old farm. She’s trying to move into a new facility, but the construction is halted by the worst winter in a century. The brutal cold takes a toll on wildlife, too and Hope begins her year rescuing bobcats and birds frozen out by Mother Nature. When spring finally thaws Canada’s east coast, it brings a flood of orphaned animals. Through it all, Hope maintains her signature optimism, inspiring her team and everyone around her.

Hope for Spring
The worst winter in 100 years buries the rehab in snow. Hope’s team digs in to help birds and bobcats struggling to survive the brutal winter.
Meant For This Place
A hare in a snare needs Hope’s help. Chelsea hits the road to rescue a litter of orphaned foxes, and an injured bobcat is rushed to Dr. Barry’s for medical attention.
Going It Alone
When there’s only one animal of a species, Hope’s team must take special care. The youngest porcupine Hope has ever seen arrives at the rehab, and a volunteer rescues a seal stranded in a neighbouring province.
Stepping Up
Silver the seal has a mysterious illness, and Kayla finds a surprise in an attic full of baby raccoons. A former volunteer makes her debut as a veterinarian.
Early Bird
Deer season is slow to start, then floods the rehab with fawns. Two police officers rescue a fawn after its mother was hit by a car.
Catch and Release
A fisherman's illegal catch provides a feast for Hope's patients. Hope's team round up five feisty bobcats and return them to the wild.
Whatever It Takes
A fawn survives a snare and a bobcat attack - can Hope's team save it? A bobcat kitten winds up on Hope's doorstep, and an old friend returns to the rehab to help in Hope's hour of need.
