Outcome of Rehabbing

So, the 4 squirrels I had are doing well ;) One of my friends has taken in 2 of them to divide up the work between the two of us. This is really late in the year to have as many squirrel calls, as we have been getting. Normally, spring time is squirrel time for us. We are working on figuring out a way to be able to do more rehabbing since there are limited amount of rehabbers in Isabella County.

Hopefully, over time, my two friends and I will be able to open our own rehab facility. It will take some time, some grant writing, and money.
But, with luck we will be able to eventually get something going more full-time.

One issue that we have had is, people who call us for rehab, seem to think that it is a paid position and that we should be able to transport and do anything at a drop of a hat.

Unfortunately, rehabbing has to come 2nd. We have jobs and families, so the rehabbing is done more on a volunteer basis. We put our own personal time into it as well as resources (funds, supplies, etc.)

So, if you ever find an animal and call a rehabber - remember they are doing it for the animals, not the money!
