Whitehouse (WTVG) - This is baby season at Nature's Nursery in Whitehouse. The wildlife rehabilitation center is taking in dozens of animals every week.

The center helps about 2,800 animals every year, with a big percentage of them arriving in May. The Executive Director expects about 700 animals to come in this month alone. Right now there are lots of baby squirrels, bunnies and opossums, and song birds. There are also a couple of fox kits.

Staff members at the wildlife center say it's important to point out that not all baby animals you see alone need to be rescued. In some cases the mother is getting food or working to not attract predators to the nest. If you have any questions call the center at (419) 877-0060.

Nature's Nursery can always use donations of cash and supplies. Volunteers are also a big part of the operation.

We've posted links if you'd like to help the center continue its work.
