MWRA Referral Directory

Individuals listed in this directory have the required permits to work with wildlife. MWRA provides this service solely for the benefits of its members and the public. It is not intended in any way to endorse anyone on this list.

When you contact a rehabilitator, you most likely will get an answering machine, particular during the very busy spring/summer season. Please be patient and they will call you back. It is up to the public to transport the animal to the rehabilitator, if at all possible.

Do not risk injury to yourself or the animal if you are unable or uncertain about handling it. Instead, give the exact location [e.g. "corner of Main Street and First Avenue" or "3 miles south on Mid-County Highway from Woodfield Rd."] and approximate description [e.g. "found a large bird that I think is injured" or "found a small deer that I think is abandoned"] to the nearest rehabilitator. All rehabilitators will be too busy during the heavy season to leave and pick up an animal. In some cases, the local animal control will be able to pick it up.
