We accept injured or orphaned wildlife from the public. We will triage and treat them and if appropriate, transfer them to the rehabilitation centers. Before attempting to rescue a potentially injured or orphaned wild animal, it is important to be sure that the animal actually needs help. Watch it from a distance so as not to frighten it or keep the parents from returning. Check the animal periodically for 24 to 36 hours to see if it is still around. DO NOT touch or remove the animal unless you are absolutely certain that it is orphaned or in immediate danger. With some species, it is normal for parents to leave their offspring alone for extended periods of time. A young animal that looks well-fed with bright eyes and clean fur or feathers is probably not orphaned.
