SACRAMENTO (KTVU) - Sacramento's Wildlife Care Association says this year's winter storms has led to an increase in animals turning up at the center, especially baby owls.
The organization says it helped dozens of baby owls this winter.
Some of the owls were blown out of their nests during intense rain and strong winds.
The wildlife association helps them grow and then releases them back into the wild.
"It's awesome. There's no other way to put it," says Therea Bielawski with the Wildlife Care Association, "When you've taken this animal, especially the ones that were really close to death and you've been able to bring htem back; as you're releasing that animal you realize this owl would not be out here if we weren't here."
The Sacramento Wildlife Care Association says it helps 6,000 animals each year.
