Thanks very much - his name is Rascal.
He is the first raccoon patient, but there have been many going back to my childhood; some thrived and were set free, some died due to injuries quickly (rescued from cats mainly, but too late), and others went to a wildlife veterinarian in the region. Over the years, there have been birds, mice, chipmunks, squirrels, a skunk, a groundhog, turtles and a group of orphaned opossum babies - the opossums went to a rehabber and were raised and released.
The tricky part has been that vets have to decide about prognosis and rehab placement when a non-licensed person brings an animal in; they cannot legally give the animal back to you, even if your intention is care and release.
So, this is all best done with a license and you are part of a larger network with various facilities and more cooperating vets, fellow rehab partners, and so forth.
More than most people here want to know, I’m sure : ), but this has been an avocation for decades and a good thing to come out of the pandemic has been extra time and property renovation (shed, barn, fences are good to have), and then the first creature arrived. : )
