Rescued Young Chipmunks

These young chipmunks arrived on May24th, They were very, very weak and dehydrated. They had been found just outside of their nest, with no mother around. After realizing how difficult is to care for such young critters, the rescuers brought them to the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah. Susan began around the clock care with a special formula thinned down to get plenty of electrolytes into them. After initial struggles to get them to take the formula, they began perking up and eating more. Feedings were every three hours while closely monitoring their weight.
