they’ll prob take mum along with the babies, until they are fending for themselves then release mum and overwinter the babies – even if the rescue centres are full, some are still taking them in, most are running at double, or even triple their capacity. They have to make more space, and rely on their donors to pay for more boxes and food.

I think it’s best to ring them, ring them first, but also follow it up with text and email, just so they definitely get your message.
