I saved a mouse one cold winter from being stuck in a warm house. My house but not my mouse. I apologized to the critter for being evicted and then escorted it out the front door. Also, one time I released an American Coot from some fishing line that was wrapped around one of its legs.
Another time I stopped in the middle of the road to rescue an injured dove that was being picked at by some crows. I thought it was dead but it wasn't, so I took it with me not knowing what I was going to do with it since I was on my way to work. I stopped at a gas station and by coincidence the driver of the vehicle next to me worked at a local bird rescue center. She took possession of the injured party and off to work I went.
