You Found a wild animal & uncertain what to do....
Describe your service here. What makes it great? Use short catchy text to tell people what you offer, and the benefits they will receive. A great description gets readers in the mood, and makes them more likely to go ahead and book.
You have a RVS (Rabies Vector Species) animal and not sure what to do...
The very first question you should ask yourself: is this animal definitely orphaned or injured?
Are you "baby napping" (stealing) by removing this animal from where it is right now?
If you are not 100% sure you are making the right call- PLEASE CALL BEFORE MOVING THE ANIMAL!!
