If you find a baby squirrel with unopened eyes, put it in a warm cloth or sock and place in a small box. Squirrels this young are not normally out of their nest at all. If you find such a tiny squirrel, call or bring it to a rehab centre right away.
If you find a baby squirrel that has opened eyes but appears to be abandoned, leave it alone and watch it for a few hours. Usually, the mother is not far away. If the baby is truly abandoned, place in a covered box and bring it to a rehab centre.
If you find an injured squirrel, carefully place it in a lined, small box without food or water and call us. We will either direct you to a vet or request that the animal be brought to the centre.
