Along with offering advice on what to do if you find a wild animal, Paws has trained staff members available by phone to help you determine if a critter you’ve come across needs help and what to do next.
Those curious about the types of animals they help can check out their patient of the week posts. Recent entries include a Harbor Seal that was attacked by a dog, a Spotted Towhee that tangled with a cat, and a Long-eared Owl that flew into a window.
This wildlife rehabilitation center opened in 2016, and also offers advice by phone. Facebook fans have been quick to praise A Soft Place to Land, sharing stories of how they helped with tiny squirrels, a wayward owl, and a deer that had been shot with an arrow.
If you’re closer to Kent and come across a critter that is ill or has been injured or orphaned, Puget Sound WildCare is available to help. Along with helping a variety of animals they’re working on building a special nursery to help the near 100 raccoons that arrive at their facility each year.
