Build your own Community Cat Outdoor Shelter

If you're concerned about outdoor cats, it's easy and affordable to make a warm, dry outdoor shelter for them during the cold winter months.  Click HERE for instructions on how to make one using a styrofoam cooler and straw (Do not use hay or blankets which can retain moisture. It must be DRY to insulate the shelter)     

Wildlife

Wild animals are usually best left to themselves, especially baby bunnies.  It is not typical for a mother to abandon their babies.  Many mothers only visit the nest of their young during certain times of the day - typically dawn and dusk. Wondering if a wild animal needs your help?   Click HERE for guidelines on when to intervene and when to "let them be."    The Oshkosh Area Humane Society does not rehabilitate wildlife but may be able to direct you to another resource. If you believe a wild animal is injured or in need of assistance and you aren't sure what to do please refer to the list of Wisconsin wildlife rehabilitators and contact them starting with ones closest to your area.  For the Wisconsin DNR list of wildlife rehabilitation organizations, click HERE.
