    Default In need of rehabilitator near Rock Falls / Sterling, IL

    Hello, I know someone looking for a rehabilitator near the Rock Falls / Sterling, IL area. He has a squirrel who has his front legs injured. I am just getting this information from messaging him. I figured someone here would be able to help better than me!

    Another good option is 2nd Hand Ranch Rescue in Princeton. It's 38 miles from Sterling.

    She is a member of TSB and an awesome rehabber.

    summerskye1214,

    I spoke with Nancy Johnson from 2nd hand ranch and she said you may have contacted her a few days ago about this squirrel. If that was you PLS call her ASAP 309-738-7480. That squirrel needs to get to a rehabber and with that kind of serious injury self-rehab usually never works out well for the squirrel. She can get it to a vet tomorrow if you bring it to her today.

    I just sent summerskye1214 an email, telling her to come back to the board.
    We've found help for her.

    Thank you SophieSquirrel.

    This person is from a group on Facebook. I have passed on the information to him. I can't do much more than that, since I am in a different state. Thank you guys!

    The person in Rock Falls called me yesterday or the day before (its been a crazy week ) when she first found the squirrel and I said I could take if they could get to me. I think they didn't want to deliver but someone to pick up. I will always help a little squirrel. I actually have a vet appt with other animals tomorrow morning. I also told them to go to my FB page to see the list of all the DNR rehabbers. Rock Falls is about an 45 minutes away - not that far. Just 2 roads from my house get you there.

    Summerskye, If it's a gas thing I would gladly send gas him money just to get the little one to Nancy. Hopefully he gets the message as there is a bad ice storm coming to Illinois. Try to get his phone number and call Nancy @ 2ndhandranch so she can speak to him direct to make arrangements. It's easier than 3rd party through a facebook group.
