Contact Us

If you have found an injured or orphaned animal or if you need advice:

Please call the appropriate Animal Hotline number for your animal species (see box on the right).

Please be patient: all our volunteers are very busy. They will return your call as soon as possible.

Only licensed wildlife rehabilitators may legally care for Michigan wildlife.

  • Please do not try to care for injured or orphaned animals unless you have the proper training!
  • Do what is best for the animal, place it in the care of an experienced wildlife rehabilitator.

If you live outside of Michigan and you need to find a wildlife rehabilitator:

Contact your local Humane Society or Department of Natural Resources for assistance.
