Wildlife Rescue

What do you do if you find a wild animal that needs help? First, find an adult to help you! You should never get close to or touch a wild animal by yourself. The animal may be dangerous, or may have a disease you can catch.

Different animals need different types of help. Click each animal's picture to find out what to do if you find these animals! Remember sick or injured wildlife are stressed. Keep them in a dark, quiet location and stay out of their site until you can transfer them to a rehabilitator or veterinarian.
