Wildlife Rehabilitation

After much deliberation, we have made the tough decision to go on intake hold in our wildlife rehabilitation clinic. At this time we can only accept injured or orphaned fawns from Livingston County. This will allow us to focus on the care of the hundreds of patients already in our clinic, in addition to the 200 phone calls our Wildlife Helpline is receiving daily. Please know we are working diligently around the clock to care for the wild lives in our clinic, and we will re-open to intakes once we have stabilized. Thank you for understanding!

Licensed Rehabilitators

From orphaned baby squirrels to owls with fractured wings, we strive to provide quality care with the hopes of rehabilitation and release back to the wild. We are licensed through the USFWS, DNR and USDA. This vital community service is only possible through the compassion of those citizens who bring us wildlife in need and the generosity of our community which provides financial support.

Before bringing in any wildlife, please contact our helpline. Often, we can assist without you needing to bring in the animal. Our Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic is open Tuesday – Sunday from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and CLOSED on Mondays. The Wildlife Helpline is still available on Mondays.

Support our Wildlife

All of the wildlife patients Howell Nature Center receives each year are funded by the generosity of our community. These animals could not be helped without YOU. The animals, as well as us, thank you deeply for your continued support.
