Place the animal inside a strong, well-ventilated container suitable for its size and strength.  A cardboard box, Rubbermaid tote, recycling bin with a screen top, or an animal carrier all work well.

Warmth is essential for babies or animals that are very compromised.  Use a hot water bottle, or microwave a bean bag, or you can fill an old sock with rice or beans and microwave it.   Wrap it in a towel, and place it near the animal, inside the container.

  • Do not "pet" them, hold them, or attempt to feed them as this can cause additional stress.  Remember, you are their predator and they are terrified of you, even if they don't show it.

  • Never feed an animal or give them water in its mouth if they are unresponsive, cold, dehydrated, or emaciated.  This can cause sudden death.
