What to Do If You Find Sick, Injured, or Abandoned Wildlife
- In most cases, leave the animal alone. Contact an appropriate agency (HSHV, Friends of Wildlife, Help 4 Wildlife, or Bird Center of Washtenaw County) for advice. HSHV is available 24 hours a day rescue involving sick or injured wildlife.
- Never offer ANY food or liquid (including milk and water) to the animal without first consulting an expert.
- If the animal appears to be an abandoned baby in immediate danger, it is okay to place it in a dark, warm, quiet place while you wait for advice from Emergency Rescue staff or wildlife rehabilitator.
- Remember, it is illegal to keep/rehabilitate wildlife unless you are a certified wildlife rehabilitator. While you may mean well, animals that are rehabilitated without the knowledge of a certified wildlife rehabilitator will not survive when released back into the wild.
- If it’s an adult deer that’s been hit by a car, please call both us (734) 661-3512 and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency dispatch (734) 994-2911.
Our partnership with wildlife rehabilitators has saved thousands of lives. If you have a general question or would like information on wildlife, please call the resources listed.
