Get a cardboard and make some air-holes on it. Take a towel and place it on the animal. Gently scoop up the animal with the towel and place it in the cardboard box. You can leave the towel/ cloth inside the box. Close the lid of the box and tape it or secure it with a thread.
Place this box in a quiet room. Turn off the lights and DO NOT allow pets or children near the box. Do not make noise or play music. The animal is already stressed and keeping it quiet and dark helps calm the animal and aids its recovery.
- Yes. Based on the condition of the animal, we will suggest ways of handling the situation. Following our instructions is extremely important for the well being of the animal. Please DO NOT feed the animal or pour water into or on the animal.
Please DO NOT feed the animal! Feeding it may lead to choking or aspiration and food poisoning. Especially with baby birds, their instinct is to open their mouth and ask for food; however they are very sensitive and feeding them the wrong food can kill them!
Please DO NOT pour water into or on the animal. When you try pouring water into the mouth, it can enter its lungs, which can lead to pneumonia and pouring water on the animal leads to hypothermia.
Please DO NOT feed milk to the squirrel. They need special formula meant for squirrels. Feed them honey or cow’s milk leads to developmental impairments and diarrhea!
We are not open to the public. All animals in the hospital are under medical or rehabilitative care, they are not educational animals. Wildlife especially get extremely stressed around humans and they negatively affects their recovery. So it is in the best interest of the animals, we cannot allow personal visits or tour to the center.
