Snowball - When Standing Out Doesn't Help

These baby squirrels are Ponz and Snowball; they came to us in February as orphans, about 4 weeks old. Every year many 100's of orphaned raccoons, squirrels, possums and baby birds come here. We triage them, give them any medical care they need, keep them warm, make up their formulas and feed them until we can get them to wildlife rehabbers.

There are small pockets of black squirrels around the state and the same with white squirrels, only the white ones have some problems surviving. Instinct tells squirrels to either run or to lay still and let their camouflage hide them. Instinct tells the white squirrels that, too, only they don't have any camouflage and stand out like a sore thumb. Because of this, many don't make it to adulthood.

We couldn't let that be Snowball's fate so we raised her here to live with us and for company, her brother Ponz, too. We neutered Ponz so we wouldn't have any more babies to worry about. We just finished an outside area for them and they love it.
