Treatment and rehabilitation of wildlife is a specialized service requiring facilities and supplies specifically designed for wildlife. We are not able to treat or hospitalize wild birds or other wild animals. Here is some information on how to help injured wildlife:
- Do NOT attempt to capture or handle wild raccoons, skunks, foxes, or bats; these species have a high risk for carrying rabies. Call animal control.
- Do not "rescue" feathered healthy baby birds just because they are on the ground. Very often the parents feed their young on the ground as part of the fledgling process. If the bird is on a road, move it to the side of the road.
- If a wild animal is terminally injured and clearly in need of euthanasia, we do provide this service free of charge. If the doctor on duty deems that the animal may be saved with veterinary care, the animal must be transported to a licensed wildlife care facility. We do not transport wildlife, this is the responsibility of the person finding the animal.
- Wild animals (including mammals, birds, and reptiles) that are both native to and injured within the State of Pennsylvania may be referred to the Wildlife Division of the Schuylkill Center of Environmental Education (215)482-8217.
- Wild birds (any species, from any state) can also be referred to: Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research: 110 Possum Hollow Road, Newark, Delaware 19711 (302) 737-9543
