At WildCare in San Rafael, California, many wild animals are brought in every day – skunks, birds, opossums, squirrels, and more – including raccoons. Four baby raccoons are put into the hands of WildCare staff, specifically volunteer Shelley. The kits need feedings, medicine, burpings, and even help going to the bathroom. The kits are not allowed to spend any time with other humans – they can’t be used to humans once they are returned to the wilds of suburbia. A steady process involving enrichment, exercise, outdoor exposure – and more than you’ll ever think you’ll know about raccoons and other city wildlife – fills the pages of Raccoon Rescue.
