For instructions on other species, please contact your local wildlife rehabilitator or local Fish & Wildlife agency. 

Most wildlife rehabilitation facilities are non-profit organizations that depend heavily on volunteers and donations. If you are interested in learning more about helping native wildlife, consider becoming a volunteer for your local rehabilitator.

It is against the law in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Mexico for anyone who is not a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator, educator, or falconer to possess native wildlife.
