If you find an animal you think needs help, please call the hotline for instructions before picking it up. If the animal needs to be transported, keep it in a well-ventilated cardboard box with a lid or a closed paper bag (if a bird or reptile) in a warm, dark and quiet place until you can get it to a SWR volunteer.
IF SAFE TO DO SO, USING LIGHT WORK GLOVES, PLACE THE ANIMAL IN A WELL-VENTILATED CARDBOARD BOX OR PET CARRIER WITH SEVERAL SOFT CLOTHES, LIKE BABY BLANKETS OR T-SHIRTS UNDER AND OVER IT. DO NOT GIVE IT FOOD OR WATER… consider volunteering if you would like to be trained as a wildlife rehabilitator!
