Before rescuing a wild animal, assess the situation and put your safety and the safely of others first. Call the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center at 540-837-9000 for advice.
Hawks, owls, and eagles can injure with their talons and beaks. Please call for advice on how to rescue these species. If you feel you can rescue the animal safely, try to put the animal in a cardboard box, or other sturdy container, keep it covered, and place it in a warm, dark, quiet place away from people and pets.
Keep noise levels low, and do not handle or watch or disturb the animal because wild animals are frightened and stressed by this. Please do not offer the animal anything to eat or drink until you have spoken to the BRWC hotline staff at 540-837-9000.
