The weather outside is less frightening. . . It is actually warming up!


This means baby wildlife are not far behind.Please remember what to do when you encounter injured or orphaned wild animals outdoors. Most wild babies such as rabbits and birds are not actually in trouble, and are out learning to survive.

For example, young rabbits found outdoors with eyes open and ears up are actually ready to go and no longer need their mother’s help, regardless of how small they are. Young baby birds hopping about in the grass are actually out learning to fly and should be left alone.

Only intervene when wild animals are obviously sick or injured. See the “wildlife” link on the left side of our website for how to help.

. The Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic provides no charge care for injured and orphaned wildlife good Samaritans bring to our clinic. However, donations are welcome and greatly appreciated!
