We have had several Rescue dogs. They all made great pets and good friends. A neighbor and I rescued some baby bunnies, when a dog ate two of their siblings. We rescued the three who were left, called the Wildlife Center, who told us (based on their appearance and fur and how their ears were pointing) that they were old enough to live on their own, and to find them a secluded place away from dogs, cover them with grass, and they would find their way on their own. And, NOT to feed them anything. They all eventually found their way and did well.
Once a bird was caught in one of our bird feeders. I hadn't realized when I bought it that a birdies' head could get caught between the edge and the rim. Her head was caught and a friend and I carefully took her out, and she flew away, no harm done.
Once one of our birdhouses fell in a storm. My Man picked it up and thought it was empty, when he started to remove the bedding, a bunch of baby birds fell out! We rounded them up, as the Mama screeched at us from a tree. One went under a railroad tie on our property, but one of our daughters was small child with very small hands and she was able to reach the baby bird from under the tie. We put them back in the birdhouse, with the bedding, and secured it well, then watched it until the Mama (who was screeching the entire time we were trying to save her babies) finally was able to go in and start feeding them again. We watched them each day as she continued to feed and care for them, until they grew big enough to fly away.
Once a beautiful bird flew into our glass back of our house. I kept her warm and called the Wildlife Center. But, she died before I they opened. I was going to drive her over there in, but she was too badly injured.
My oldest daughter saw some men taunting a baby squirrel with a hose at her apartment building. She somehow got the squirrel into a shoebox, which she lined with an old towel, yelled at the men, called Wildlife Center and got the baby over there. We were told he did very well and was set free as soon as he was old enough.
We have a LOT of wildlife in our area, we basically live in the woods outside Chicago, so there are a lot of opportunities to run into animals.
