Providing professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife in Indiana.
Found an Animal? What to do now...
WildCare Inc. does not accept adult deer, adult raccoons, or adult coyotes and while we offer advice, we do not remove nuisance wildlife.
Orphaned? Many baby animals are not really orphaned, such as fawns or baby rabbits found during daylight hours. Put your pets in the house and do not handle. Do NOT feed this animal anything, especially cow's milk.
Not orphaned? When you are worried it might have rabies, or that it will hurt you, it is often possible to place an empty laundry basket over the animal. A weight on top of the overturned basket, such as a brick, will keep it in place. Put your pets in the house. Keep children at a distance. Do NOT feed this animal anything.
If you are able to get the animal into custody without injuring it, place it in any appropriate box lined with T-shirt material (no terry cloth) and air holes for ventilation. Call a rehabilitator for advice.
