FAQ

  • What kinds of animals do you take care of?
    The SWRC works to rehabilitate injured or orphaned wildlife native to Pennsylvania. Our license does not permit us to accept pets, domestic animals or deer.
  • Can you come and pick up an orphaned or injured animal that I've found?
    No. Since we are an entirely volunteer organization, all of our volunteers are needed at the Clinic to take care of the animal patients. If you need assistance or suggestions on how to capture or transport an animal, we would be happy to assist you over the phone. If transportation is still a problem, please call us for other suggestions.
  • Can I rehabilitate an orphaned or injured animal on my own?
    No. It is illegal for the general public to keep or rehabilitate wildlife. Illegal or not, wild animals also have very specific physical, dietary, and social requirements that can best be met by a wildlife rehabilitator.
  • Can I become a wildlife rehabilitator?
    You can find information on becoming a Rehabilitator at our Resources page.
