Medical First Aid & CPR for Pets
Please don’t call pest control companies for removal of wildlife from your house – they will trap and kill the animal. Instead, go to the national site Animal Help Now and select the help you need – animal injured or in distress, “nuisance” wildlife, or other animal issue. They will connect you with local experts who will take care of the problem humanely.
