Wildlife Care Basics for Veterinary Hospitals

This handbook, a joint project of the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association and the animal care centers of The Humane Society of the United States, contains information about how to temporarily care for and treat injured and orphaned wildlife. This book will not only help veterinarians and shelter personnel provide short-term emergency care and housing, but it will also help facilitate the transfer of disabled wild animals to licensed wildlife rehabilitators. Tips for educating and screening the public are included, along with some relevant resource materials.
