Overview

The Wildlife Clinic is currently accepting patients for rehabilitation, but is unable to accept walk-in patient admissions.

If you have found an injured or orphaned animal in need of assistance, please call our 24-hour wildlife hotline at 215-482-7300 x option 2. Please do not bring a wild animal to the clinic without first speaking with us by phone.

We are functioning with limited staff at this time; if we are unable to answer the phone immediately, please leave us a detailed voicemail and we will return your call as soon as possible. For non-urgent wildlife questions or concerns, please email wildlife@schuylkillcenter.org.

Hours of Operation

10am-4pm, 7 days a week

If you have found an injured wild animal:
If it is safe to do so, wear gloves and carefully pick the animal up with a towel. Place the animal in a cardboard box or similar container that can be securely closed, and put the box in a warm, dark, and quiet location. Do not offer food or water. Once the animal is contained, call our wildlife hotline for further instructions.

If you have found an animal you believe to be orphaned: please call our wildlife hotline before attempting to contain the animal, and we can help you determine what action may be needed.

We appreciate your continued support and patience at this time. With your assistance, we can continue our life-saving work for the hundreds of animals that need our help each year.

Helping Wildlife During Covid-19

The Wildlife Clinic takes the health of our wildlife patients, staff, volunteers, and the general public very seriously. We are taking action to protect everyone during this challenging time. In accordance with state and local guidelines, we are operating with reduced hours and limited staff on site.

To minimize person-to-person contact, we are not accepting walk-in patient admissions. We have set up a small outbuilding for patient admissions, which is being regularly cleaned and sanitized along with the rest of our facility.

We are also requesting that donations of supplies not be dropped off until after these restrictions have been lifted.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. It is through the kindness and compassion of people like you that the Wildlife Clinic can continue to provide our essential services to our community and to native wildlife in need.
