Yesterday some heavy winds came through and knocked a squirrel nest out of a tree. My dog ate 3 of the four but was able to save one. As an aside I live in the country. The baby is currently in a box with papers in the tree that we think the nest was in but momma hasn’t taken him out of the box. He was left there overnight. He is still alive but I don’t think he has much longer. I already called the local wild life rescue person in Topeka KS. I have not heard from him. I have read that you can’t feed them milk or infant milk for long periods of time. What can I do to make sure this baby squirrel lives. He’s young enough to not have any fur.
Hello everyone, I'm new to thread and would like to find help on getting involved with animal rescue. I have some experience from volunteering at local animal shelters. I was hoping to find different insights and different suggestions on what would be the best way to get involved.
Apparently there’s this family that always throws their pets on the street or sends them to the pound once they get sick of them. They had this American Bulldog/Pitbull mix named Snow. They never bothered to train her because because they’re lazy, and because of that she’s developed a few behavioral problems and killed a few kittens within the house. The kittens are the offspring of three cats that got pregnant, by the male one. These owners didn’t bother to get them fixed because they wanted kittens, even though it’s illegal to breed cats without a breeders license.
As a result, they decided to put Snow in the pound. And now I want to save it, the only problem is that I cannot keep her since I have kittens in my house, one is almost full grown and the other is quite small. My friends aren’t able to keep her either.
As a result, I initially thought that “I could probably adopt her off the pound and put her in a in a ‘no-kill’ shelter where they’d actually train her.” The only problem is I’ve heard that in most shelters, they check one’s house before you adopt, and I know if that happened my family they will not take it well. Plus, I think it would look kind of weird that I bought her off a shelter only to be put in a shelter again?
Another problem I have is one of my friends has pretty bad Aspergers and decided to pitch in and make a stupid mistake. She decided to get one of her coworkers to see if they were willing to adopt her and that she’ll pay for them. The problem is if the person doesn’t want the dog anymore, then she will be stuck with it and she will be in a lot hot water with her family for doing that without their permission. I’m pissed as hell that she decided to do that behind my back.
I need advice on what I need to do, I know I’m thinking of calling an animal rescue against those neighbors, but I also wanna save Snow.
