Wildlife Rehabilitation

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. ​We treat all native species of birds and mammals except skunks, bats, raccoons, and adult deer. We are unable to accept reptiles or amphibians at this time.

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.
