Fledgling Birds

finchesFledgling birds spend 1-2 weeks on the ground learning to fly and being cared for by their parents. Featherless, downy or incompletely feathered baby birds that fall from the nest may be re-nested. Contact a rehabilitator for instructions.

If you suspect that an animal has been caught or bitten by a cat

If you suspect that an animal has been caught or bitten by a cat – even if no puncture wounds are visible – the creature must be put on antibiotics right away. Bacteria in a cat’s saliva will cause infection, and, if untreated, the animal will die. Contact Safe Haven immediately.
