These listings are available to assist you in locating a permitted wildlife rehabilitator in the event you have found orphaned or injured wildlife.

Directory listings submitted by users, are provided as a courtesy, and should not be construed an endorsement or an indication of the accuracy of the listing.

Not all rehabbers are listed in directories. You may need to make phone calls to other rehabbers within your state to get referrals to someone closer. Please remember that the majority of wildlife rehabilitators are volunteers that care for wildlife at their homes. Most do not get paid or reimbursed (many also work fulltime during the day). If you reach an answering machine, please listen carefully because there will often be drop-off instructions on the message.
