You Can Help WildCare’s Wild Babies!
Spring and summer are Baby Season at WildCare, but some young ones start arriving as early as January! Your Baby Animal Sponsorship means we’re ready to help wild babies whenever they arrive. Thousands of orphaned wild animal babies are helped in our hospital because their mothers and fathers have been injured or killed. In most cases, the parents of these vulnerable babies have been lost as a result of a direct or indirect human interaction.
The babies that receive medical attention from WildCare come from many different species, but just like human babies, all have in common the need for warmth, gentle care, proper nutrition and a feeling of safety and security.
A Pouch of Opossums
Virginia Opossums live their first two months warm and safe in their mother’s pouch. Newborn opossums that have lost their mother need an external heat source.

A Nest of Baby Songbirds
Mockingbird babies in foster care require hand-feeding every 30-45 minutes from a dedicated care-giver until they are able to learn to feed themselves.

A Hammock of Squirrels
Orphaned squirrel babies are fed special formula developed to approximate their mother’s natural milk and sleep in a "hammock" constructed of cloth and clothespins.

A Brooder of Ducklings
Mallard duckling orphans at WildCare need brooder-boxes that offer both dry and wet areas for them to use while they grow feathers, gain weight and learn to swim.

A Pair of Fawns
Black-tailed fawns need predator-proof housing that allows them enough space to be able to grow, run and gain experience and stamina to escape predators.
