If you find a wild cottontail rabbit (or other wildlife)

We are unable to take in any kind of wildlife.  Below is a list of wildlife centers. We wish we had the time and room but we are not licensed nor do we have the room to properly care for these wonderful creatures. 

Information on how to help orphaned cottontails:

NOTE! Most nests of baby bunnies are NOT abandoned by mom! Mom stays away and comes in to feed her babies at regular intervals. And don’t worry too much if you’ve touched ‘abandoned’ babies….mom will get over it. Read lots more here:
