Injured Animals

Call us at 828.898.2568 before you attempt to help injured wildlife, please!

Here are some quick tips:

  • Use caution! Cover the animal using gloves and a towel.
  • Keep the animal in a warm, dark, quiet place.
  • Do not offer food or water as it can cause additional harm.
  • If we are too far for you to drive, call us anyway. We can connect you with a local facility.
