Review for Red Creek Wildlife Center Inc, Schuykl Havn, PA, USA
this past winter around dinner time my dogs were barking insanely.....I looked out to see a BIG beautiful raccoon sitting at my front step....he was there for hours and at times all buroughed up.....I felt so bad, I wanted to bring him in. but everyone was like call and have him shot, he must have rabies.....even though I knew that was NOT always true, that they have rabies if they are out in the day. I took him/her out dog food and he gobbled it all up. My neighbor told me about red creek, I called and they told me they couldnt come that night, but if he were there in the morning to call them and they would come. My kids told me they saw him at 1am sleeping on my door mat. well the next morning I didnt see him , thinking he was ok. Till I saw pics of him posted on fb posted by my neighbor that he made his way up the street laying behind a truck on the street. SO she called and they were on their way. Then a cop came...I told him dont you dare shoot him......they are coming to get him....it doesnt mean he has rabies!!! so the cop called them to confirm they were coming. And they did...they got him into a tote very easily. I had called about him as he was always on my mind! I fell in love with the poor thing....I knew he needed help. they say he must have been clipped by a car....slight leg injury maybe some head trama....maybe the reason he never hissed at me for feeding him nor did he ever try to come at me as I was 6 inches away from him. they nursed him back to health....he had NO rabies....and posted pics of him being released somewhere safe! I am forever grateful to them!!!!! I have tears in my eyes writing this....as I am a country girl who grew up playing with moles...and try to help any living creature...heck I even stop for turtles and put them somewhere safe!!!! Thank you again redcreek...you are AMAZING!!! keep up the fantastic work!!!!!!!!
