New York State Wildlife Rehabilitators

Home

Below is a listing of New York State wildlife rehabilitators ordered by DEC Region, county and town.  Additional rehabilitators may be found by contacting the regional Department of Environmental Conservation office or checking their listings at http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/83977.html.  This is not the complete list of rehabilitators. NYSWRC maintains this list for the convenience of the public and makes no claim to be able to evaluate their respective levels of skill.  We rely on individual rehabilitators to maintain their entries.  Please advise me if you find disconnected numbers or bad emails.

Please e-mail Molly Gallagher with any corrections or changes.  Please note your Region and County in your message.
Last Updated October 25, 2014

Note that wildlife rehabilitators must be federally licensed to rehab migratory birds (songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, etc) but without the federal permit may accept non-migratory birds (European starlings, pigeons, house sparrows, northern bobwhites, mute swans, monk parakeets, partridges, ring-necked pheasants, grouse, and turkey).  They must be RVS certified to accept skunks, raccoons or bats.

ongoing study being conducted on neurologic problems in Whitetail deer research project planned to collect data on existing herd of Sika Deer on Long Island

We offer educational programs to the general public and training classes for rehabbers and volunteers.  Call or email for a schedule and information.  We keep a list of local rehabbers and their area of expertise, and operate a hotline where the public can get advice and referrals.  We encourage all rehabbers to contact us with their information.  This seems to work better than having people call a dozen numbers of people who do not handle that type of animal, or who are full to capacity or on vacation.
