When a wild animal needs help,
wildlife rehabilitators provide expert care.
WWRA is dedicated to supporting their work.
Join us for our annual conference on February 11, 2023!
Wisconsin Wildlife Rehabilitators Association is a professional organization for wildlife rehabilitators, but WWRA itself does not provide rehabilitation services. We recommend using the Animal Help Now website to locate a licensed rehabilitation facility near you. Better yet, download and install the Animal Help Now smart phone app so that you can find help wherever you are – anyplace in the U.S.
Need some help deciding whether a rehabilitator is needed? Wondering what you should do while waiting for help? We’ve pulled together the best resources available to help you make humane decisions that will, in turn, reduce the number of animals in need of rehabilitative care.
Wildlife rehabilitation is more than just providing care for wild animals. It is a field that requires significant and specialized knowledge and skill, as well as state and often federal licenses and permits depending on species.
This work does not happen in isolation and requires a network and community to successfully complete. Thanks to the dedication of licensed wildlife rehabilitators, volunteers, veterinarians, and regulatory agencies – literally thousands of wild animals are provided with humane and ethical care each and every year in the state of Wisconsin.
