If you have found an animal you believe is injured or orphaned...

First “STOP,” which stands for Slowly back up, Tell an adult (if you are a child), Observe the animal, and Phone the appropriate rescue service. To locate a wildlife rescue service, check Animal Help Now, which is a website and a mobile phone app that immediately connects people involved with animal emergencies with the closest, most appropriate resources and services.

Handling wildlife can be dangerous to you as well as to the animal. Do not attempt to rehabilitate wildlife yourself. Wildlife rehabilitators have been trained and licensed to administer the highly specialized care that wild animals require and could die without.

WEP teaches respect for wildlife and all living things, and an important part of that is allowing wildlife to remain wild and lead normal, species-appropriate lives. WEP does not recommend attempting to keep wildlife as pets.
