It is common in the Spring and Summer months to see young, wild animals that do not need our help. If you are unsure or have determined that the animal is injured, please call us immediately at (914) 629-8352

How to tell if an animal needs assistance:

  • A cat or dog has brought you the animal

  • You witnessed the animal being attacked

  • An obvious  broken wing or broken leg

  • A featherless or nearly featherless bird on the ground

  • Shivering

  • A dead parent nearby


**If you have an injured or orphaned animal, do not attempt to give food or water. Often, well meaning individuals do this, leading to the eventual death of the animal. Warm, dark, and quiet!**


It is ILLEGAL for anyone who is not licensed to possess native wildlife.
