Chipmunks have two litters a year: in spring and late summer

When to Rescue

A baby mammal showing signs of illness or injury needs to be rescued. Follow the baby mammal temporary care instructions.

It is unusual to find a baby chipmunk, particularly if its eyes are still closed, as the mother does not let them out of the burrow until they are old enough. If you find a baby, it is probably orphaned and needs rescuing.
