RESOLVED!!! THANK YOU.
Urgent TRANSPORT needed:
A baby squirrel in urgent distress needs to be picked up from the finder in SUNNYVALE and driven to me in SAN FRANCISCO.

I realize this is a real ask, but if anyone is going that way and coming back this baby really needs the ride.

We have been busy graduating orphans and moving them on towards their wild life. Here are 8 opossums released back into their birthright yesterday. As they get released at dusk in low light, sorry for the poor video quality.

Thank you to all of our amazing followers here on Facebook who drop everything to transport Wildlife to us. Or for us. Today this amazing mama possum came in. At the time we didn’t know she was a mama but once I examined her it’s a no brainer. So grateful that she’s here and she can live in comfort while she raises her babies.

We were designated as an essential service, because wild animals are essential. They need your support more than ever.

In April, we received over 500 requests for assistance with sick, injured and orphaned wild animals — over three times our average number of calls. COVID-19 has had a major impact on our rescue work because so many more people are home, in nature, and coming into contact with wildlife.

Unfortunately, at the same time the need to rescue animals has grown dramatically, COVID-19 has led to our county grant funding to be cut in half and our regular source for donated food and supplies to indefinitely suspend in-kind donations.

We need your help!

Our goal is to raise an emergency $5,000 to offset the donations we’ve lost because of this public health crisis. This will cover food and supplies for the increased number of animals in our care.

If you do not use Facebook you can still help us:

Recently, we were asked to rescue some unusual-to-us animals – as in, Not Wildlife.
We were moved into action by their need and we have launched a fundraising campaign to get them the care they need. You can read about it here:

Here at Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue, we are thankful.

We are thankful for the emergency response volunteers who disrupt there lives on a regular basis to help wildlife in need.

We are thankful for the caring, loving souls who are our foster-care volunteers who nurture orphaned wildlife babies and then let them go to be wild when the time is right. It is a bittersweet kind of work and we are so grateful to those who take it on even when they know it will be painful.

We are thankful to each and every member of our society who stops there day to try to find help for an animal in trouble – to all those scared voices over the wildlife hotline, thank you. Now more than ever before we need those caring voices.

We are thankful to the individuals and the foundations who see what we do and want to support it even when we are so overloaded with the actual work that we struggle to get the grant applications in on time, or the thank you letters written. Thank you for seeing through the fog of need that surrounds us and taking our hand in support.

We are also thankful to every one of us humans who sees the need to protect wildlife and the environment we all share. We are walking in the shadow of climate change threatening everything we love, but Together we can still make a difference.

We are thankful for the Earth and the unending beauty and strength we find here.

What are you thankful for?

May you all have a loving and caring Thanksgiving.

With the recent storms, we have had several wildlife orphans brought to us for care. Here are some pictures:

2 baby squirrels – 5 weeks old. 3 were found drowning in the gutter during a heavy rainstorm in Oakland, CA on March 5th 2016. 1 survived and is doing well.

This baby squirrel was knocked from his nest when he was less than 1 day old. He was laying on the sidewalk being eaten by ants when he was found by a caring family who picked him up, cleaned him off, and called our wildlife center. That was on February 27th 2016

This eyes-closed baby opossum is one of 7 who were saved after their mother was killed by a backyard dog.
