Find a Wildlife Rehabilitator

If you find a sick or injured animal, it is important to locate a licensed rehabilitator. Many rehabilitators specialize in caring for certain types of wildlife such as songbirds or small mammals, however the permit allows them to accept all authorized wildlife.

Find a wildlife rehabilitator…

Found injured or orphaned wildlife?

if you have found an orphaned or injured animal, the best place to start is to call your local animal control or find a local wildlife rehabilitator, which may be able to assist with transport or refer you to a local wildlife rehabilitation facility.

Thanks for sharing a great educational video Center for Conservation Medicine @ Tufts Cummings School of Vet. Med.!!

Center for Conservation Medicine @ Tufts Cummings School of Vet. Med.
Last week’s #cameratrap videos offer us this nice comparison between gray and red #foxes that passed by a camera within hours of each other here in Grafton. You can easily see the differences in fur, build and coat patterns even in the black and white of infrared night videos. Foxes are generally harmless and important members of our healthy wildlife community. You can learn a lot more about them from the MA Wildlife site www.mass.gov/service-details/learn-about-foxes See MoreSee Less

Thanks for all you do Cape Wildlife. Great job!The winter weather is hitting our wild neighbors hard! This Turkey Vulture is just one of the weather related intakes admitted to our hospital today. He was found along with his flock-mates huddled under a bush last night in Westport. The driving snow and frigid temperatures prompted them to seek shelter, but the weather proved to be too much for them. Thanks to the efforts of a good Samaritan and the folks at Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife several of the most critical patients were picked up and brought in for treatment. Our veterinary team is in the process of warming them up and performing full exams to make sure they are in stable condition. We will continually monitor for the latent effects of frost bite, and provide nutritional support . Once this weather breaks they will be returned to Westport to re-join their flock.

Your Support Makes all the difference. As winter kicks into high gear, your donations go farther than ever! Please consider donating to help wildlife of all kinds this season at capewildlifecenter.com Thank you so much and Stay Warm!!! See MoreSee Less
