How To Locate a Wildlife Rehabilitator


If you find ill, injured or orphaned wildlife, it's important to find a licensed wildlife rehabilitator or rescuer fast.

Here are links to listings of wildlife rehabilitators and facilities by state and country. It is not a complete listing of rehabbers, but the individuals and groups listed here should be able to help or refer you to the appropriate person in your area.

If you do not find a specific contact person in your area, call your local Fish & Game, Fish & Wildlife Department, Animal Control Officer, Humane Society, veterinarian or cat/dog rescuer. They generally know where to find a rehabber for you. Thanks so much for caring about the wildlife and trying to find them help.

*This is my own list which I made from Department of Fish & Game, Fish & Wildlife listings and other rescue websites and directories. This list has been in this website in some form or another since 2002. Licensed wildlife rehabilitator contact information is public information available to all. I made my own list when one of the other lists kept going down. Some animals probably died because no one could find a rehabilitator because their link went down. Since then that list WLREHAB was shut down by the University of Minnesota which hosted it. It was shut down because of abusive behavior by the new moderator. The University received many complaints and had warned the moderator in October 2009 before they finally told her to leave February 2010. This list is here to save wildlife. That is what matters.
