Animal Help Now fills a much needed void for emergency wildlife help!
The Animal Help Now app is the answer to emergency help for wildlife! I found the app to be intuitive and nicely laid out. After exploring a bit further, I could tell that a lot of love and planning went into the development. I love the feature allowing you to search for help by animal type. Download the app today so you'll be ready the next time you need help for wildlife!
Great City Animal Rescue Resource
Downloaded this app after my neighbor’s cat got to a baby fledging songbird. Within seconds of opening the app had the closest song bird rehab facility phone number. Now little baby bird is getting the care he needs and will be out flying and singing in the wild soon ❤️ thank you for this app - it helped to save the life of a little Los Angeles resident in need 🐣
Came in handy
I’ll let my Facebook post speak for itself:
Here's a picture of the bird I just rescued from the side of the road. He was on his back with his wings spread out, and I almost didn't know it was a bird, let alone anything alive. (It was kind of an edge-on view I had from my car.) I pulled into a nearby parking lot only a minute or two from home and gently flipped him over with my shoe. He then started crawling away (slowly, since he was injured).
Thanks to an app I had on my phone (Animal Help Now!), I was able to to enter what kind of animal it was and find the nearest person or place that could take care of him. I had to drive about six or seven miles to a house, but the lady there was able to take him. I don't know how long he had been there, but it was probably good timing just because of the rain that started almost as soon as we were in the car. Being upside-down, the bird might have gotten water into his beak or nostrils, etc., and who knows what that might have done to him.
He was so good, though. Although he resisted me putting my soft coat around him to carry him (since I had no box or anything else I could use), once I was carrying him to the car and during the long, rush-hour trip to the house he was so calm and didn't try to move. (I talked softly to him, etc., just as I do when I'm taking my cat somewhere.) He struggled a little when I had to bring him back out of the car and to the lady, but he may have been scared or sensitive because of his injury. I hadn't known what it was, but the lady spotted a little blood and an obviously sore spot. She said he was probably hit by a car, but if nothing was "broke" she would be able to help him. Hopefully!
Thanks, Animal Help Now!
