    Exclamation Downed nest of baby squirrels. Saved one, I need help finding rehab centers.

    Hi yall, I recently found a nest of baby squirrels on the staircase at my apartment complex. It has been raining nonstop recently here in Tampa Florida. I managed to rescue one of the babies, I currently have it wrapped in a towel with a Ziploc bag of warm water. Im out of my league here and Im not sure what to do.

    Id appreciate any help at all. Just dont want to see the poor thing die. P

    What happened to the other babies? Did mom take them? They have other nests and will relocate them if the nest falls. I would keep the baby warm tonight. You can offer hydration fluid. Page 2 of the bottom link has the recipe for homemade hydration fluid. Tomorrow I would try to reunite with mom. Put the baby in a small low container. Play the baby squirrel distress call.

    If mom is around she should come to get the baby.
    If she doesn’t we can help you. Here is a link with baby squirrel care.
