WildHART Application

Thank you for your interest in working with the Bi-State Wildlife Hotline. Please fill out the following form and click Submit to send your information to our Volunteer Coordinator.

 

Fields marked with an * are required

This application is for people that are willing to allow us to contact them when an animal is in need of pick up and/or transport in your area. We may call you, text you, or both. Many times the animal in question must be immediately transported to our HQ in north St. Louis, or to someone else with a permit to hold wildlife. You will need to carry basic essentials with you at all times:

1 baby carrier (like a tote, picnic basket, small soft carrier)

Soft fleece blankets for baby carrier

Medium size dog/cat crate for older animals

3 towels

1 heavy pair of gloves that reach up beyond your wrist (check Harbor Freight)

2 packages of "Hot Hands" warmers for babies (50c at Walmart)

Wildlife rescue ALWAYS holds the potential for you to get bit, peed on, pooped on, drooled on, bled on, and many of our patients are covered in fleas, ticks and other lovely insects when they are picked up. This is, sadly, a part of our jobs. It is your responsibility to make sure that you protect yourself from these potential harms. Wear gloves- ALWAYS! Don't get distracted. Don't be scared but don't be stupid and fearless. Wash your hands. Carry sanitizer. Carry a flea comb or 2, or 3, and kitten flea powder if you are at all interested in helping the animal with the bugs once you have them.
