Found an sick, injured or orphaned animal? These links will help you connect with a licensed rehabilitator or other wildlife resources near you. Rehabilitators are often busy caring for their patients so please leave a message and wait for a call back. It’s important to call quickly. Waiting even a short time greatly decreases a sick or injured animal’s chance of survival. Never give the animal anything to eat or drink and please follow the expert’s advice closely. After providing the necessary care for the animal, most rehabilitators will release it near where it was found. So, if you rescue a animal, you might get to enjoy its release back to the wild!​
