I just got this email from Angel, founder of the wildlife rehab group. What a dedicated bunch of people!
Happy September Everyone! Most of you know that the Wildlife Hotline was on hiatus in August, temporarily. We are officially back up again and providing the same services as before with a much larger staff. I certainly hope that we can keep up this time! We are still 24 hours per day taking calls about ALL things wild for ALL of Missouri & Illinois. We are also providing rescue services for critters in need, and/or pickup when it is TRULY necessary. (We are not a bunny rabbit and bird ambulance service though.) We do have a new phone number, toll free 1-855-WILD-HELP but all of our old numbers still work just fine, and they will continue to work as long as we’re in existence.
Also, from what I understand we are the only ones in the St. Louis area still accepting squirrels right now. Please feel free to refer those calls again, especially after hours. Thank you so much for everyone’s patience!
