This webinar will detail how to prepare and respond to cases of wild animals in a number of emergency situations, such as deer stuck in fencing or soccer nets; snakes entangled in exclusion netting; raccoons or skunks with food containers stuck on their heads; birds, bats and squirrels inadvertently trapped in living spaces; injured waterfowl, and even turtles crossing the road. Learn how to approach the animal in the least stressful way possible, how to extricate the animal from the situation, and evaluate whether or not the animal needs medical care. This webinar will also review what PPE and handling skills are needed to perform rescues safely and humanely. We’ll also share our tips for creating a basic “wildlife rescue kit” to keep in your vehicle so that you’re always prepared to respond to these emergency situations.

The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
Founded in 1954, the Humane Society of the United States and its affiliates around the globe fight the big fights to end suffering for all animals.
