Our drop-off hours for injured, sick or orphaned wildlife are 7 days a week from 10am - 4pm.


At the Wildlife Clinic, our goal is to provide professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned native wildlife so healthy animals can be returned to their natural habitat.

Wildlife rehabilitators in PA must have a permit for every group of species they rehabilitate. Currently, we are permitted to accept the following native species:

  • Songbirds
  • Waterfowl (ducks, geese)
  • Raptors (owls, hawks, eagles)
  • Small mammals (squirrels, chipmunks, opossums, cottontail rabbits, etc)
  • Reptiles (non-venomous snakes, turtles)
  • Amphibians (toads, frogs, salamanders)

The Clinic does not currently have permits to rehabilitate:

  • Rabies vector species (foxes, coyotes, racoons, skunks, bats, groundhogs)
  • White-tailed deer

For non-urgent wildlife questions or concerns, please email wildlife@schuylkillcenter.org.

We are unable to admit or rehome domestic animals, farm animals, or pets. For help with these animals, please contact your local humane society.
