    Default REHABBERS NEEDED: NYC Metro Area!!

    Friends, I just received a group email from an active and very good squirrel rehabber in lower Manhattan (NYC). She is no longer going to be rehabbing wildlife, and instead will devote her time to cat rescue. What this means is that an area with over 18million humans and Lord knows how many million squirrels is now being covered by one less wildlife rehabber. This leaves MAYBE four of us to save squirrels.

    So, if you live in NYC, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Nassau County or even lower Westchester county, please consider wildlife rehabilitation as your next adventure in life. I promise to help as much as I physically can and will provide everything a new rehabber needs to get started. You can take in as few as ONE or as many as...whatever......just look into your heart and mind and see if you are being called to help. The need is HUGE. Between us few, we rescue and release so many orphaned and injured squirrels every season, but there are times when we turn off our phones or don't answer the email because we physically cannot help more babies.

    COME ON, downstaters! Don't let them get all the credit in Oneonta and Buffalo! NY metro loves squirrels too!

    Thanks for listening.
    Peace, Love, Squirrels.

    My wife and I would love to but the problem is we love in a condo and they would have a heart attack if we were doing this!!!!
    We are looking to buy a house soon so don't count us out.
    We have learned so much from everyone on TSB and when the time is right we will step up!!

    Great to meet you, dextersmom! How has your fall season been going? I am swamped.....if it weren't for Nancy in New York (member) here, who held onto six of my baby squirrels, I would now have 19 in my "house", which is a small condo. Trust me, 13 is crazy enough.....

    I am keeping your number with my rehabber lists here, and removing it from the public areas of the Board so you don't get spam or harassing phone calls. I will also admit you the Rehabbers Forum.

    Folks, this doofus who posted above is a spammer or even an automatic spamming robot (spambot). Notice the clunky language and then the (illegal on TSB) links to junk websites? Thank you Scooterzmom for alerting Administration to this turkey and I'm leaving the post up to show newbies what a spammer looks like.

    Hello all!

    I am in Queens, NY and looking for a rehabber for a baby squirrel. He is (in my estimation, but I'm no expert) 6-10 weeks old. He's furry and eats on his own, with no apparent injuries or health issues. I found him today on a busy sidewalk, he was following humans around and venturing into the street. I observed him for a while and became very concerned that he would be hit by a car. I was referred to an animal hospital on Long Island who gave me a list of local rehabbers, but the ones I contacted were overwhelmed and unable to take in any more squirrels. He's currently sleeping in a box in my apartment, but I need to find someone who is equipped to care for him. Any help is greatly appreciated!
