you need to contact a wildlife rehabber.  they’re the best place for him…and depending on the laws in your state, you may be required to turn him over.

I agree with Laura, the best thing you can do is contact a wildlife rescue.  Please do not try and handle the racoon yourself.  The unfortunate reality is that many raccoons are rabid and I wouldn’t want you to put yourself in danger.  A rescue will be able to properly and safely handle and help him

It depends where hou live. Racoons aren’t illegal to keep as pets in middle and southern states.

Personally take him to a vet. The vet can determine if he has disease and if he doesn’t he will need shots. If you live in a state where it’s illegal to house one contact a rescue. There is nothing wrong with keeping a racoon as long as its legal and it has its shots.
