Do the GCWR rehabilitators come and pick up the animals that need to be rescued?

Due to the high volume of calls and the time needed to care for  the injured/orphaned wildlife it is impossible for the rehabilitators to be able to go and pick up all the wildlife calls that come in. We ask that the public safely place the animal in a box or kennel, call the hotline and they will be instructed to take the animal to the rehabilitator that specializes in that particular animal.
