Use the table below and sort by town to find a rehabilitator near you. Please note that many rehabilitators specialize in treating certain species or categories of animals. Before trying to capture or transport an animal for care, contact a rehabilitator to get advice on the best procedures for safely collecting an animal.

* A Federal Migratory Bird Rehabilitation permit issued by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is required to rehabilitate migratory birds. A state wildlife rehabilitation permit only authorizes the following bird species to be rehabilitated: wild turkey, ruffed grouse, rock pigeon, mute swan, ring-necked pheasant, house sparrow, starling, and northern bobwhite. If a rehabilitator does not have an asterisk (*) by their name, then they cannot accept migratory birds.
Please keep in mind that wildlife rehabilitators are not authorized to rehabilitate Endangered, Threatened, or Special Concern species protected under MESA. If you're not sure whether you have found a listed species, please contact the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program. Wildlife rehabilitators are also not authorized to rehabilitate venomous snakes, black bears, moose, or white-tailed deer.
