Please remember that all of the Wild Kritters numbers below are volunteers. Most of us work other jobs and although we all want to help the animals, sometimes it is necessary to call more than one of us.
Please try the number(s) closest to where you need help. If you are not able to reach someone live, please leave a message and someone will call you back. It's OK and even recommended to leave a message with more than one us so you can get help as quickly as possible. Please be patient as it may take a while for someone to get back to you.
Until you hear back from us, the best thing you can do for an animal is to keep it in a dark, quiet place, if at all possible.
Thank you again for taking the time to help!
ATTENTION: ALL DEER ISSUES PLEASE CALL FUZZY AT 716-909-8536
Rabies Vector Species (RVS)
RVS wildlife consists of Raccoons, Skunks & Bats. First and foremost, DO NOT TOUCH them with your bare hands and keep your distance from them.
Unfortunately, we only have 1 RVS certified member in our group and are unable to take any more RVS animals at this time. If you need help with one of these types of wildlife, please contact the Erie County SPCA. We are not happy about this but it is beyond our control.
