Rescues for today

The rehab season has just gone into it's 'fall mode'. The time of year that we learn about the critters the good hearted people tried to help, but don't know what to do now that they've grown a few months and become the wild animals that they are. And the babies born so late in the season that the weather itself would do them in are starting to be found as well.

Today we're working on finding a rehabber in different states for a 5 month old flying squirrel kept in a hamster cage all summer and a baby coonie found on the road in Florida. Thanks to all you rehabbers out there for being there and doing what you do. The world is starting to wake up to the plight that has been caused by human overcrowding resulting in wildlife evictions. And a big thanks to all the humans that have the courage and sense to contact a rehabber for help!

If you or anyone you know finds wildlife -- please encourage them to contact a rehabber to help. We will help find rehabbers for those who are looking if needed. Let's all pull together and help our native wildlife. Together we can change the way the world treats our creatures.
