Injured, Sick or Orphaned Animals

Deer

The City encourages residents to report sick, injured or orphaned animals to the Police Department's Animal Control Unit.

The following are tips to protect and care for animals you feel are in danger:

  • Handle all wild animals as little as possible, especially birds, ducklings and goslings. Do not give food or water to animals you intend to bring to a rehabilitation agency.
  • When you find an injured or ill adult wild animal, check to see if it may be nursing. If it appears to be a nursing mother, look for a nest or young in the area. Without help, the babies will starve.
  • Check animals that appear scruffy with hair loss, bald spots and sores, possible signs of mange. Mange can be treated if the animal is taken to a rehabilitation agency.
