Fallin' Pines Critter Rescue

is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of handicapped, unwanted critters, exotics, farm animals, and reptiles. Through our adoption program, the rescue is committed to finding loving, forever homes for all the adoptable animals.

Fallin' Pines does not accept
dogs, cats, or Florida wildlife.

The rescue does not have a foster program for our adoptable animals.

Fallin' Pines would like to extend a Big thank you to all the UCF Cornerstone groups for their fundraising efforts. Since the fall of 2004, UCF student groups have been raising money to help build new enclosures, fencing and much more. Without the hard work of these groups, we could not adequately house and care for the hundreds of animals that come through our gates every year.

TheĀ  director of Fallin' Pines is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator who has been caring for injured and baby squirrels for many years. There are more than 50 baby squirrelsl being hand-fed at the rescue right now. We are always in need of clean, used T-shirts, unflavored pedialyte and Esbilac powdered milk replacer.

If you find a baby squirrel on the ground, and it does not seem to be injured, it is important to try to reunite the baby with its mother. Put the baby in an open box lined with a soft cloth, and place it under the tree. Mother squirrels can carry their babies back to the nest. Keep away from the area to allow the mother to come down. She will not come down if there are people or pets close by. If the mother does not come for the baby within 2 hours, or the squirrel appears sick or injured, call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for treatment. Do not depend on e-mail - get someone on the phone. You can find a list of rehabilitators here
It is important that you do not feed the baby squirrel anything or try to raise it yourself. Without the proper care, the baby will not survive.

We currently have a large number of dog and cat crates, bird cages, aquariums, and other animal cages and accessories available. These cages would be a wonderful home for your newly adopted pet or just to improve the accommodations of your current pet. Suggested donations are accepted for these cages.
