I FOUND A VISIBLY INJURED WILD ANIMAL
Please call the SPCA Wildlife Center at 831-264-5427 to report the animal to us. If at all possible, please stay where you can see the animal so we can more easily locate him and so you can report if he leaves the area.
I FOUND AN ORPHANED BABY ANIMAL
Please take a photo and call our Wildlife Center at 831-264-5427. Our team will evaluate the circumstances to determine if it is a true orphan, or if it is a species that mom might leave alone for long periods of time.
If the animal is an uninjured baby bird, please return him to his nest.
Always call the Wildlife Center asap and do not try to feed the animal. Wild animals have varying diets and feeding them without knowing their needs can cause life threatening illness or death.

Never attempt to treat or keep a wild animal yourself. Not only is it illegal, but injured and orphaned animals have specialized needs that only trained and experienced technicians can provide. Just one day of the wrong diet can permanently injure or kill a wild animal.
