Raise An Orphan
Wild mammal care
Best Friends Animal Society
Each year the sanctuary is inundated with orphan mammals of all shapes and sizes. These orphans include mice, squirrels, chipmunks, cottontails, jackrabbits, bobcats and cougars. Each orphan needs round-the-clock supportive care to survive; including constant heat, 24-hour bottle feeding, weaning to solid foods and medical treatment for injuries and shock. All orphans are carefully weaned and prepared for survival in the wild before being released.
Your gift will support specialized infant feeding formulas, syringes, bottles, heating pads, incubators and medications needed to raise the wild orphaned mammals our rehabilitation center receives each year.
