Wildlife Center Procedures during COVID-19

SHARE:

Please call ahead if you think you have found wildlife that needs help.

Due to an unexpected dramatic increase in wild patients, combined with staffing restrictions due to COVID-19, the Wildlife Center is regrettably not currently able to take in any additional mammal patients at this time. This will allow us to continue to provide quality care to our current hospital patients. We are also unable to return phone calls regarding mammal species. We will continue to be able to provide care for native bird species, reptiles and amphibians.

If you need additional assistance with a wild mammal, please contact the DNR Call Center at 1-888-936-7463.

For the safety of all involved, we have made some changes to the animal admission process in order to better maintain recommended social distancing. Please follow the steps here to learn how we can help. Procedures have been updated for COVID-19.
