Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Program
IMPORTANT: If you are looking for help with an injured or distressed animal, please call (914) 400-6014 immediately.
The Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Program provides veterinary care and rehabilitation to orphaned, ill and/or injured wildlife with the intent of releasing them back into the wild. When appropriate, wildlife that have been permanently injured and are unable to be released into the wild are evaluated to be kept in captivity and used as educational animals at accredited facilities.
These services are provided by our volunteers who are annually licensed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
The needs of this program continue to grow as the human population and economic development continues to threaten native wildlife.
Each year Animal Nation receives and responds to more than 5,000 calls for assistance and through the work of our dedicated volunteers we are able to provide emergency care and rehabilitation to more than 500 orphaned or ill/injured animals.
