Other Raccoon Sites

Appearing below are links to other raccoon sites on the web. Some are sites from people that rehab and return raccoons to the wild, others are sites that responsibly have contact with wild raccoons, and still others are sites that may be thought of as pet raccoon sites.

While I am against raccoons as pets whenever preventable, there are exceptions. Most of the "pet" raccoons in the sites listed below are raccoons who were rescued and nursed back to health by their human surrogate parents who never intentionally decided to have a pet raccoon. Not being rehabbers, these people found their raccoons became too deeply imprinted to be released back into the wild. And so, often at great personal sacrifice, they assumed the huge responsibility for that which they tamed and loved so dearly. These raccoons are not kept in cages and most have run of the house. These people don't consider their raccoon as a pet but as a companion - a very demanding companion. They acknowledge that a raccoon is not a pet like a cat or dog. It is still a wild animal. If you are considering a raccoon as a pet, you will find these people are the first to advise you of all the reasons you should not have one. For more information, please see my Raccoons as Pets page.
