Possums

1. Welcome the possums to your neighborhood and yard. Possums are cute, sweet, friendly, good neighbors.
 

2. Possums are wonderful for your garden.  You needn't use pesticides if you have a possum residing in your yard.  Possums eat insects, bugs, and leaf debris.


2. Possums are very sweet & loving creatures.  They will not bite nor hurt people or pets under any circumstances.  They may hiss but that is just to scare people away.


3. Possums are very timid.  They are nocturnal and try to stay hidden so no one can see them.


4. Possums do NOT carry any disease or sickness that can be contracted by or spread to people or pets.  They do NOT contract or carry rabies.  Their body temperature is too low for them to be able to harbor rabies.


5. Possums are a delightful addition to your yard or neighborhood.  Please try to keep them safe, protected, and well-cared for.


Provide food, water, and warm, dry shelter for the possums in your yard, basement, or garage.  Provide good nutritious foods, especially fruits and vegetables, organic, if possible.  Possums love fresh raw bananas, tomatoes, brocoli, carrots, etc.  You will want to cut the fruits and vegetables into bite-size chunks.


Please call 773-250-3407 anytime for more information.


8. Possums deserve our love, kindness, and protection.

9.   If you find an injured, hurt possum or other wild creature:

If you find an injured possum or if a possum is not safe in your neighborhood, please immediately call a wildlife
rehabilitation/rescue volunteer or wildlife
rehabilitation center in your area.

You can find them on the internet under wildlife rehabilitation centers or wildlife rehabilitators for your county.  The Audubon Society can often help you locate one.

If you can't find a wildlife rehabilitator, call us at our emergency number 317-602-3143.  We will try to help you find one in your area.
 
CautionBe certain that you are not accidentally calling a 'pest extermination' company.  They are horrific and sometimes try to pose as rescue groups. They charge high prices, kill the animals at issue in cruel manner, and lie to you about their doing so.
 
10.  You can help protect your neighborhood possum by providing him with good nutritious food, water, and safe shelter in your yard, basement, or garage.  Steam-distilled water is always best.  He would love some warm, dry blankets.

Let your neighbors know what a wonderful addition he is to your neighborhood so they will not be afraid of him.  And call us at 317-602-3143 if your neighborhood possum needs help of any sort.

Thank you for caring about our precious possums.

Raccoons

1. Raccoons are precious creatures who will not hurt you or your family.  Like the possums, they are nocturnal, timid, and like to stay hidden from people.

2. In the Pacific Northwest, many people allow the possums and raccoons to live in their yards.  They feed them regularly
and provide them with special shelter in the wintertime.  Possums and raccoons co-exist beautifully with other animals.  They will eat out of the same dish, together at the same time, with stray cats and squirrels.

3. With people feeding them, the raccoons become tame and then sometimes allow themselves to be seen.  Some become quite tame and friendly.  They will come right up to people, hoping for a kind word and a snack.  They will not hurt you.

4.  So don't be afraid if you see a raccoon in your yard.  He is just visiting to say hello and may be wondering if possibly you might be willing to give him a nutritious snack

5. The raccoons won't hurt you or your family.  They are gentle creatures who are just passing through

6.  Like with the possums, you will want to help keep the raccoons in your neighborhood safe.  Be sure that your neighbors understand that the raccoons are no threat to them, that they are just sojourners who deserve kindness and respect as they pass through the neighborhood.

7. If you can help a raccoon family by providing safe shelter,
food, and water, especially in the wintertime, by all means, please do it. A corner of your empty garage, basement, or attic with plenty of soft blankets, nutritious food, and water would be much appreciated by them.

8.  If you find an injured, hurt raccoon or other wild creature:

If you find a raccoon who needs help of any sort or a raccoon who is unsafe in a given neighborhood, please call a wildlife rehabilitation volunteer or wildlife rehabilitation center in your area.
 
You can find them on the internet.  See information under 'Possums'.

If you cannot find a wildlife rehabilitator or center, call us at our emergency number 317-602-3143.  We will try to help you find one in your county.

Also, call the Audubon Society in your nearest large city because they usually keep up-to-date referral information on hand.

Beware the 'pest extermination' companies who pose as rehabilitators. Please see information under 'Possums'.

Thank you for caring about
 our precious raccoons.

possums & raccoons.
