Gary:
These baby raccoons were discovered after we had our spa removed. They
are covered in insulation because the mom was raising them inside the spa
installation.  Unfortunate for the mom, she escaped in another town
because, unknown to us she was hiding inside the spa (while it was being moved). The babies are healthy and being cared for at the Lindsay Wildlife Museum’s Wildlife Hospital in Walnut Creek, Calif.

Sharon:
Taking the raccoon babies to the Lindsay Wildlife Museum was a good move. They are one of the top wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centers in the country. When the raccoon babies are old enough, they will be rehabilitated back into the wild where they belong. Thanks for caring! /Gary

    I am the species manager for raccoons at Lindsay Wildlife Hospital and these babies are currently in our care. THey are at homecare with one of our very experienced caregivers being raised until they are old enought to be released back in their area. Thank you Sharon for caring and providing these babies with a second chance.
