Two rare albino raccoon kits recently trapped by ABC Wildlife of Arlington Heights have found a permanent home at Second Nature Wildlife Rehabilitation in Thompsonville, Ill.

Only one in 500,000 births of raccoons result in an albino and their survival in the wild is minimal due to lack of camouflage.

ABC Wildlife recognized this fact and put out the call for rescue.

The kits are being housed at the home of the centers director in Palatine while awaiting transport tomorrow afternoon. Once their, the process of raising and grooming to become Wildlife Ambassadors will begin. Should you have any issues with wildlife, please call a wildlife rehabilitator for advice.
