It is illegal for any person, other than a state appointed rehabilitator, to care for wildlife. 

Non-releasable animals require State approval and Federal permits to be educational ambassadors. 

*Please do not take babies from the wild.  If you see an animal in distress, contact your local wildlife rehabilitation center for help.

Rehabilitators are trained to follow proper protocols for each specific species. Opossums, in particular, have rigid dietary requirements.
