Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators

This is a comprehensive list of wildlife rehabilitators statewide. It is accurate and up-to-date. If there is no listing for your city/county, look for a rehabilitator in an adjacent county. Do not call the Department of Wildlife Resources or the Wildlife Helpline. Please remember it’s illegal to keep or care for orphaned or injured wildlife unless you are a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.

Please be mindful that rehabilitators are private citizens. Telephone calls to rehabilitators should be limited to daytime hours only. The phone numbers listed may not be able to accept text messaging so please call them directly.
