Birds that were rescued and rehabbed in 2015!
Baby bunnies are starting to come in! Can you count how many are in this photo?
This time of year we get a lot of calls from people who are worried that mom abandoned the nest. Keep in mind that Mama Bunny does NOT sit on her nest like a chicken. She will hang out nearby and eat, but she doesn't want to be on the nest all the time or she will attract predators. She will feed her babies late at night and/or early in the morning.
Try to be patient and allow her to raise her babies. Keep the dogs, cats and kids away. Bunnies are on their own within about a month after being born! Remember that feeding any wild animal can be deadly to them - please contact WRT before you purchase formula or supplies. We are here to help!

What is Wildlife Rescue Team, Inc. ?
Wildlife Rescue Team, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer-based organization dedicated to the raising and rehabilitating of orphaned and injured wildlife from the state of Nebraska, with the goal being to release them back into the wild.
Our volunteers are available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, including all holidays. The Hotline Number is a 24 hour answering service available for after hours, to take messages. There are some volunteers that are available for after-hours care, depending on the type of animal. Please call the Hotline if you have questions about a wild animal, need assistance with an injured or orphaned animal or you would like more information on becoming a member of WRT!
During the spring and summer months our volunteers are very busy with animal care. If there is any way you can transport the animal to a WRT member, it would be very helpful and much appreciated. The on-call person can direct you to the closest WRT volunteer available based on your location.
If you have any questions or concerns about injured or orphaned wildlife, please call the Hotline at (402) 473-1951.
