Rescued American Toad Help?

Hello, everyone! Tonight, my friend and I went walking around his property, and when we looked into a partially-covered well in his front yard, we found two American toads (a male and female) trapped and treading water. We fished them out with a net and put them in a bucket before agreeing to bring them in and try to help them out. The female is extremely malnourished but feisty, and the male is not as malnourished but much more timid. They’re both very weak and small overall.

We placed the toads into a plastic bin that is about 36”x18”x18”, and we added mealworms and beetles dusted with multivitamin powder, bark for hiding under, a shallow water dish with conditioned water, and Eco Earth. His sister has some geckos, so we were lucky enough to have extra materials. We drilled holes into into the sides of the bin, and it has a locking lid. My friend’s house is kept at around 70°F.

Is there anyone more experienced with keeping toads that could help us out with some care tips for these little guys? We’re trying not to touch them too much for a little while because they were handled a good bit tonight and have generally been traumatized by what they’ve been through. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

you are on the right track. I cant think of anything off hand other than maybe being sure you clean that water dish out regular.
