I FOUND AN ANIMAL, I NEED HELP!
AWARE offers basic information about how to stabilize a wild animal or wildlife situation until more help is acquired. In Georgia, it is against the law to keep or rehabilitate any wild animal unless you are properly licensed. Regardless of information found on the internet or in other resources, care of a wild animal by an inexperienced person can do more harm than good.
FIND A REHABBER
Anytime you have an animal that needs help and AWARE is either unable to help or too far away to be convenient, you can consult the list below. The list is taken from data published by Georgia DNR. Like us, the volunteer rehabilitators on it cannot always help everyone all the time.
