​This organization offers all types of squirrels refuge. Most of the squirrels our organization acquires are from Tampa Bay Emergency Animal Hospital. Some squirrels rendered unable to care for themselves and need full time care because of birth defects, contact with man, hurricanes, eating poison meant for rats etc. are selflessly cared for by our volunteers. There are NO paid positions at Lovely Lita's. All proceeds from sales and all donations go to the squirrels and are tax deductible. The costs are enormous and most people do not realize them. The cost to raise one baby squirrel to 6 months old is about $250.00 each. Six months is the age in which we considered to be mature enough for release back into the wild. That is if they are not injured or sick. If they come in injured or sick the cost really escalates from there for meds, vet visits, etc.... Lovely Lita's deals with anywhere from 200 to 300 squirrels a year. You can do the math, it is a huge undertaking to save these little creatures. Any donations no matter what size DO help. To volunteer you do not need experience in tending to squirrels, you just need patience, time, and a some instruction. The smaller squirrels (up to 12 weeks old) need to be fed every two hours and the larger squirrels need to be fed every four hours. Volunteers who do not want to take on the chore of preparing the squirrels for the wild can bring them back to the organization and we will take care of that. Supplies are in need continuously to feed and house the animals.
