Wild Care receives several species of small mammals. The largest being Virginia Opossums, to Eastern Gray Squirrels, to the smallest – White-footed Mice. The majority of the mammals that we see are orphans. Orphaned mammals require round-the-clock care and hand-feeding by our caring staff when they are at a young and vulnerable age. Through our Wildlife Helpline, Wild Care staff provide live counseling to prevent “kidnappings” of healthy animals by well-meaning people. Through this helpline, we frequently reunite orphaned mammals back with their parents. Yet despite all attempts, Wild Care received 106 squirrels in 2017.  Of those, 89 were orphaned due to being displaced by tree felling, construction, or the mother being killed. Please consider a donation today, to help us to keep all of these babies well fed and get them back into the wild where they belong!
