Found An Orphaned Baby Squirrel?



Here are step by step instructions on what you should do if you have found an orphaned baby squirrel. Feel free to read and browse the other information that is listed below this section, but these are the basic steps that you need to follow.

  • Send for the Emergency Care Information by sending a blank email to: help@squirrel-rehab.org and the information will be sent to you automatically. This information will tell you what you should and should NOT do with the baby squirrel until you get in touch with a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

  • Locate A Wildife Rehabilitator. If there is no one listed for your state, there is a link at the bottom of that page that you can try or fill out the form at the bottom of the page and I will try to locate someone for you.

  • DO NOT FEED the baby squirrels anything, especially cows milk. See the Frequently Asked Questions for answers to this and other questions that we get asked all the time. Wondering why cows milk is not a substitute milk for squirrels, see the Results Of Improper Diet pictures and they will show you why.

  • Could the baby squirrel you have found be orphaned? Please read Is This Squirrel Orphaned?.

  • Want us to tell you how to raise this baby squirrel yourself? You need to read this.

Nonda Surratt Memorial
Wood Carving Installed June 2014!

Thanks to everyone that contributed to the memorial bench for Nonda Surratt of Cedar Hill Wildlife Care in Ohio. The bench is now in place and Don has shared some photographs with us so that we could see the beautiful memorial that we gave to Nonda. Please visit the Nonda Surratt Memorial page to see photos of the memorial bench in its location at the arboretum as well as the new memorial wood carving by Sarah Rowe which Don applied to the bench in June 2014.


Help us continue to help the animals by finding rehabilitators to care for them. This web site does cost money to operate/maintain and any donations to help us keep it going would be greatly appreciated.
