Injured/Orphaned Wildlife

Though WNC is home to many previously injured non-releasable animals, we are not a licensed rehaber and cannot accept injured or orphaned wildlife.


Have you found an injured animal that needs help? Click the link here for a directory of wildlife rehabilitators or contact WNC offices and we can help direct you to the right one. You may also contact Wildlife in Crisis of Weston at (203) 544-9913. 


Have you found a baby animal you think might need assistance? Baby wild animals might seem like they need our help, but unless the animal is truly orphaned or injured, there is no need to rescue them. To tell if a baby animal is orphaned, injured, or perfectly fine—and what to do if they need your help, click here
