Animal Care Alliance is a licensed wildlife rehabilitation center. We are permitted to rescue, rehabilitate, and release native species. Non-releasable wildlife with nice temperaments become our Education Ambassadors under our education permit.
1) LEAVE IT ALONE!!!!!
Most animal mothers leave their young alone all day to go hunt/graze. If you see a baby animal alone, that DOES NOT MEAN IT NEEDS YOUR HELP.
2) If you are CERTAIN that the animal needs help (e.g. it's emaciated, visibly injured, etc.), then call your nearest licensed wildlife rehabilitator. DO NOT TRY TO CAPTURE THE ANIMAL - wildlife carry many diseases and can be especially aggressive when they're in pain and scared.
If you are unsure whether an animal is in trouble, PLEASE CALL US. We will be happy to advise you on the best course of action!
Remember, not only it is ILLEGAL to care for wildlife without a permit, improper care often results in their death.

We love working with our education ambassadors to promote positive relationships between humans and animals. There are so many incredible animals in Indiana that we don't often see because they're so elusive!
Our education team includes vultures, hawks, owls, opossums, raccoons, turtles, and several non-native rescues including pythons, lizards, geckos, and tortoises!
