Thank you for your concern about wildlife. The Pasadena Humane Wildlife Program cares for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife with the goal of releasing animals back to the wild.
We’re here to help:
- Wildlife Helpline: If you are unsure of the animal’s age or condition, text a photo and description of the circumstances to our wildlife helpline at 626.344.1129 between 9am to 5pm. We appreciate your patience while we return your message. This is not an emergency service and we will return messages as soon as we are able.
- Ill or Injured Animals: If the animal is obviously sick or injured, call animal control dispatch 24/7 at 626.792.7151 ext. 102. Obvious signs of illness or injury include bleeding, dragging limbs, obvious wounds or displaying neurological symptoms such as circling or head twitching.
- Orphaned Baby Wildlife: If you find a baby wild animal, please refer to the baby animal flow chart. We ask that you please attempt to reunite healthy baby wildlife with their parents before the animal is considered for admission. Keeping young wildlife with their parent’s ensures a higher likelihood of survival.
Pasadena Humane does not condone the trapping of healthy wildlife. There are many humane alternatives to trapping wild animals, and we are available to assist you. Check our events calendar to sign up for wildlife presentations and workshops, and our wild animal resource library for species-specific deterrents.
