Helping Animals in Distress
There’s no doubt that it’s very stressful to find a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal—stressful for you and for the animal. But there are a few simple things you can do to minimize the stress you both feel and, in the process, to increase the animals chances of survival.
Warm, Dark and Quiet
The most important thing you can do for a distressed animal is to keep it warm, dark and quiet—and this is an easy thing to do.

Homemade Hot Water Bottle Instructions
To make a homemade hot water bottle, moisten a washcloth and place it in a small Ziploc plastic bag. Heat the unsealed bag in a microwave oven for 1-2 minutes, or until the bag is very warm. Carefully seal the bag, wrap it in a small towel and place it under the box with the bird or animal in it.
