Does your agency or organization get calls about birds and squirrels fallen out of nests, very young raccoons seen without mom, or fawns and baby rabbits alone in fields or backyards? Whether or not you respond to these types of calls or refer them to a wildlife rehabilitator, this webinar will help you determine and achieve the best outcome for these animals. (Spoiler alert: many of these baby animals are probably not actually orphaned!) Learn how to know when intervention is necessary, how to reunite dependent young with their parents whenever possible, and how to best work with wildlife rehabilitators when reuniting is not possible.

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. Together with millions of supporters, the HSUS takes on puppy mills, factory farms, trophy hunts, animal testing and other cruel industries, and together with its affiliates, rescues and provides direct care for over 100,000 animals every year. The HSUS works on reforming corporate policy, improving and enforcing laws and elevating public awareness on animal issues.
