Michigan Friends of Wildlife: Rescue, Rehabilitation, Release
Who We Are
Friends of Wildlife is a wildlife rehabilitation organization based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
What We Do
Our licensed rehabilitators are volunteers who care for injured and orphaned wild animals until they are able to be released back into their native habitats.
What should you do if you find an orphaned or injured animal?
- Look for signs that the baby animal is truly orphaned.
- Wear gloves to protect yourself and the animal.
- Take the animal to a dark, warm, quiet place and wrap him in a blanket or towel.
- Call our Animal Hotline (see box on right) for the specific animal to reach an on-call Friends of Wildlife rehabber.
- Do not attempt to feed the animal anything - including food, milk or water.
- Wait to hear from the Friends of Wildlife rehabber before taking any further action.
