Newborn Squirrel


Urgenty needed!

Esbilac Powder

Or order 5 lbs Esbilac Powder directly from UPCO and have it shipped to:

Rainbow Wildife Rescue
502 E. Clifton
Stephenville, TX 76401


What to do first:

Try to reunite the baby or babies with their mom. If you think the mother squirrel may still be in the area and you have a good idea where the nest is that the babies came from, you can give the mother the opportunity to retrieve the babies.

If a baby is sick, injured or cold the chances are that the mom will not come back to retrieve it.

If the babies are warm and healthy and there is a good chance that the mother may still be in the area, we recommend giving her about 2 hours to come back for the babies. If she has not come for them within the 2-hour time frame, then she probably won’t come for them.

Place the babies in a box. You can place this box near the tree or area they came from. Make sure that the babies can’t get out of the box but the mother will be able to get in and get the babies.

If the babies still have their eyes closed, they will need a heat source to help them keep warm. Even on hot summer days baby squirrels can get chilled quickly.

A soda bottle filled with hot water and covered with a sock can be placed near the babies. Test to be sure the temperature isn’t too hot, and place a tee-shirt around it to be sure it doesn’t roll onto the babies.

Supervise the reunion attempt carefully but from a distance. Make sure the babies are safe from natural predators such as cats, dogs, hawks, crows, and snakes. But you must also remain out of mom's sight, so that she feels safe coming for the babies.

If the babies are found just before dark, DO NOT place them out for mom. She won’t be moving after dark. You can put them out in place as soon as the sun is up in the morning. If she is in the area she will start looking for them then.

LOOKING FOR A SWEET EASTER TREAT? THE BEST BUNNIES ARE CHOCOLATE ONES!

LOOKING FOR A SWEET EASTER TREAT? THE BEST BUNNIES ARE CHOCOLATE ONES!
It's that time of year again, and real live bunnies will be on their way into many homes in America this April 16—courtesy of well-meaning parents who think they're buying a low-maintenance starter pet for the kids. Unfortunately, young children and bunnies aren't at all a good match—and when the novelty wears off, many of these Easter rabbits will wind up at shelters. Unlucky ones may be dumped outside where they must face predators, cars, illness and injury. Still others are destined to lives of neglect and boredom in cramped cages.

If your family's set on getting a rabbit, give a chocolate bunny or a stuffed toy for Easter and, if your young children are really serious, a book on rabbit care. If they're still begging you for a bun after the holiday has passed, go to your local shelter or rescue group and find out how to adopt the rabbit (or even better, a bonded pair) of your dreams. For info on bunny care and rescue groups, head to the House Rabbit Society online.

You can also help spread the word that rabbits are not disposable pets by getting involved in the "Make Mine Chocolate!" campaign. Started in 2002 by the Columbus House Rabbit Society, the Make Mine Chocolate! campaign aims to educate the public about the challenges of properly caring for rabbits and encourages parents to give chocolate or toy bunnies as Easter gifts instead of live rabbits. Check out the group's website, MakeMineChocolate.org, where you can visit the interactive learning center, buy a Make Mine Chocolate! tee or pin, and test your knowledge of bunny nutrition with the "What Will You Feed Your Rabbit?" game.

Back in the game!

Back in the game!
I got a phonecall earlier, a lady telling me the typical cut down tree story, so
she brought the 2 babies to me right away.
They seem to be fit, no dehydration and are about to open their eyes. They
sure started early this year in Texas! It's a male and a female .





This is a male I released last year on my property, he keeps coming back lol.
I just took these pictures from the window. He has a little scar on his nose,
that's how I recognized him:

2 white orphaned Kittens

3 days ago I was called by a lady who was given my number from the local animal shelter. She said her cat was attacked by a dog and she had 2 kittens that just opened their eyes, but weren't doing so good. She had tried to feed them with an eyedropper with what I assume was cow's milk.

Of course I accepted the 2 kittens, a male and a female. The male fell into a coma the next day, but came around again. He had pneumonia from the cow's milk ending up in his respitory system. He had terrible diarrhea and no control about his bodily functions.
After he screamed in pain for a while, I decided it's best to relief him of his suffering.
On the way to the vet, he fell into a coma again and never woke up.



His sister Sally is doing great though! With the Lab Butters to help a bit:
