    Default Looking for someone to take in squirrel ASAP.

    Hello Everyone,

    I have an approximate 5-6 week old baby eastern grey squirrel. My boyfriend and I found him orphaned in a parking lot. Unfortunately we are NOT able to keep him and both are busy with work and school today. We called Toronto Wildlife and they do not have room for him. We called Newmarket but no response yet. Is there anyone in Toronto that can take him? The lady at Toronto Wildlife told us to call Animal Services and have him be put down...I can't bear myself to do that.

    I have notified another member in Mississauga, who's screen name is 'squirrelfriend' - she would be an excellent choice too. She has the link to this thread.
