Helpful tips regarding adult and baby wildlife! There is also an abundance of information on the DNR website and a list of appropriate contacts for licensed wildlife rehabbers in the area!

Baby Wildlife 101:

-Raccoons: This time of year, baby Raccoons are becoming more mobile and exploring during the day while mom is resting. DO NOT touch them. Leave them where they are. Unless they are injured, lethargic, or unresponsive they do not need help. If they appear to need help, contact a wildlife rehabilitator BEFORE securing them. You may see adult raccoons during the daytime as well. Likely, it’s just a hungry mom trying to keep up with her demanding babies. Unless the adult is wobbly or falling over, it does not need help!

-Cottontails: Cottontail kits do not fair well in rehabilitation. If you find a nest, leave it alone. If you find a bunny pulled from the nest, if it is uninjured, put it back in the nest. If you have concerns about your dogs getting into the nest, leash walk your dog for 3 weeks until they move on OR place a laundry basket upside down on the nest with a hole cut in it that is small enough that the mom rabbit can get into, but the dog cannot. Weigh it down with a large rock or brick. Remember, mom rabbits typically only come to feed once just before dawn and once just after dusk, so you likely will not see her. This is normal, they are being smart and discreet as to keep their nest location a secret from predators. Also, a bunny that is about the size of a tennis ball, with erect ears and open eyes, does NOT need your help and is old enough to be on its own. When they start venturing from the nest, they will “freeze up” at the sight of a predator (including humans), this does not mean they need help. Leave them alone.

-Opossums: You may see more Opossums during the daytime as they are breeding and having babies. If you see one get hit by a car or notice one hit on your daily commute, pull over, put your hazards on and safely check to 1) confirm that it is dead and not just “playing dead” 2) see if it has a pouch on it’s belly and if the pouch has babies in it. If there are babies in the pouch, gently pluck them from the teats and put them in a box or tote with blankets and an external heat source that they can move away from if they get too warm (a warm water bottle or rice bag works fine). Then contact a wildlife rehabilitator immediately.

-Birds: Baby birds can be re-nested if you find one on the ground that is uninjured and you know where the nest is. If renesting isn’t an option, keep them in a quiet place in a cozy box with a heating pad on low underneath the box itself until you are able to contact a licensed bird rehabilitator. If you see a baby bird hopping around on the ground with quite a few feathers, you’re likely seeing a fledgling that is just learning how to fly. You can always take a picture or video of it and send it to a wildlife rehabilitator for confirmation, but don’t touch it or pick it up.

-Fawns: Momma deer is always nearby, even if you can’t see her. May-June you may notice a fawn on its own nestled away, or as they get older you may notice them wandering around or playing on their own. LEAVE THEM ALONE. Unless they are injured, laying near a dead doe, or have flies on them, they are fine. Mom purposely keeps her distance to avoid drawing attention to where her baby is hiding.

*DO NOT GIVE ANY FOOD OR WATER TO ANY WILDLIFE UNLESS ADVISED TO DO SO BY A WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR. More often than not, by feeding or giving water you are doing more harm than good without the proper diet, tools, and technique.*

Remember, Wildlife Rehabilitators do not work FOR the DNR, they are funded solely by private donations and out-of-pocket. They do not have the time or resources to go “out on calls” and need your understanding, cooperation and assistance in order to help wildlife in need. :)

In this field, working together with other municipal animal welfare agencies and animal rescue organizations is essential. By working together, more resources are made available for the animals that come into our care, not only during these hard times, but at all times.

We want to express a very special thanks to a few of our partner organizations for all of their assistance during these difficult times. Between providing temporary housing until permanent placement became available, providing veterinary care, fostering and adoptions, these organizations showed their true compassion by offering us their assistance.

Thank you, Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue , I Heart Dogs Rescue and Animal Haven , Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society (GPAAS), Midwest Small Breed Rescue , Macomb County Animal Control & Eastpointe Animal Hospital for all of your assistance, not only during these times, but always. It truly takes a village.

🐾👮🏽‍♂️It’s National Animal Care and Control Appreciation Week 👮🏽‍♂️🐾

Every year, the National Animal Care and Control Association (NACA), recognizes the second week of April as National Animal Care and Control Appreciation week. NACA was happy to endorse the week of April 12th-18th, to show appreciation and give recognition to hard-working men and women of Animal Care and Control, who risk their lives and devote huge amounts of personal time and resources, while they serve the public like other public safety and law enforcement agencies empowered with similar duties.

During these tough times, although limited, Municipal Animal Control Officers are still working in the field, responding to emergencies and situations that require immediate assistance. We would like to show our appreciation by saying thank you, to all of the Animal Control Officers and personnel, for all they do and accomplish on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many situations we encounter are difficult to see, but by working together day and night, establishing proactive partnerships and by putting best practices in place, we are one step closer to being the change we wish to see in the world.

“Saving one animal will not change the world, but for that one animal, the world will be changed forever.”

I need some information about dog licences. My dog was vetted and I purchased a 2 year dog license this year (before the deadline). I noticed today that my baby is missing her tag. She never leaves my home or yard so I searched everywhere but can't find it. Is there a way to get a duplicate or is the paper document good enough?
Brian Pylar I’m watching a tiny baby bunny across the street, can you rescue him or possibly the family or are they best to be left alone? He’s very tiny and cute!
Is this the same guy? Looks like it to me...

Do your job and REMOVE TOBY!!
you have known about Toby being left outside since November 2019 and have failed to remove him! Enforce this ordinance and remove Toby, since he is STILL BEING LEFT OUTSIDE ON A DAILY BASIS IN VIOLATION OF THIS ORDINANCE. Do NOT go on the news and then ignore Toby and not bother to enforce this ordinance. No more excuses, REMOVE TOBY AND PLACE HIM WITH HUSKY RESCUE TO GIVE HIM AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE ADOPTED INTO A FOREVER LOVING HOME!
I don't know why I've called over and over again on my neighbor's dog who is outside in the freezing cold what seems to be like every time I'm outside which is a lot. I am frequently given the runaround I don't know if ever anybody comes out to do anything about it and it's very very frustrating! I thought there was a law a felony against that placing animals outside in the freezing cold and I don't get why no one will do anything about it.😡
How do I get on the adoption list for Penelope?
I just put my 12 yr old Mastiff Rocco down Jan 4th. Arthritis left him unable to walk. I got him out Thurs night to pee and managed to get him back in. He layed down and never got back up. My heart is broken. Penelope looks just like Rocco except his tail was cropped and he weighed 145pds. I jumped at the chance to foster her but sounds like it's under control. I would love to come and meet her as well as donating for her care. I have a 30pd bag of Nutro and 4 unopened bags of pill pockets. Private message me, Tina Ferriter
