Important Reminders

  • It’s always best to leave what you may think is an “orphaned” animal alone unless it is in obvious distress or in an unsafe location. Quite often, its parents are close by and reluctant to return because you are there. Watch for their return from a safe distance.
  • Generally, if no parent returns within one to two hours, you should call Safe Haven or begin preparing your protective container. An exception to this rule is a nest of baby bunnies.
  • Call Safe Haven (860-653-2811) or a wildlife rehabilitator for assistance before rescuing any animal. This is especially important with the rescue of a wild creature of any size or strength. Trained wildlife rehabilitators will wear the protective gear needed to attempt the rescue – sturdy gloves, long sleeves, boots, and safety glasses.
