FOR WILDLIFE EMERGENCIES
Found an injured or sick animal?
Please do not feed or water the animal/bird.
In the meantime:
- Use a box lined with a towel to contain the animal/bird.
- Using gloves or towel, pickup animal/bird and place in box.
- Place box in a quiet, warm, dark area.
- Call a wildlife rehabilitator, wildlife veterinarian or state wildlife agency ASAP.
- Do NOT feed or water the animal/bird.
- Get the animal/bird to a wildlife rehabilitator as soon as possible.
Found an Abandoned Baby Animal
Often times, mothers are nearby and watching over the baby from a distance. It’s important to not disturb the baby while waiting a period of time (hours, not days) to monitor the situation. Mom may in fact be nearby and you don’t want to interrupt natural wildlife care giving.
