Providing care for more than 2000 animals per year!

Take a look!

Each year, the Station spends $22,000 on food for its patients. This includes many kinds of fish, seed, insects and fresh veggies but does not cover the cost of vitamins or dietary supplements.

2,553 animals!

In 2016, PHSS took in 2,553 animals of 153 species, including humming birds, warblers, hawks, seabirds and of course “our specialty” brown pelicans. For a full list of species treated in 2016 please read our annual report.
