Injured or Abandoned Wild Animal Rescue

Baby Eastern Cottentail Rabbit
BLAIRSTOWN, NEW JERSEY - Wild Baby Rescue Center is hosting an open house Sunday October 25th, 2009 from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

All are welcome to come Tour the Facility, Meet the Staff, and learn more about What to Do and When to Act if you think you've found a baby animal in distress.

Wild Baby Rescue Center provides rehabilitation and release for the following injured and orphaned baby animals...

  • Bats
  • Chipmunks
  • Fawn
  • Fox
  • Coyote
  • Opossum
  • Rabbits
  • Raccoons
  • Squirrel/Flying Squirrel
  • Woodchuck/Groundhog

If you suspect that an animal is in need of help, call your local wildlife rehabilitator. Staff of a rehabilitation facility, can help to determine whether the animal actually needs help, and if so, how you can safely transport it to a treatment facility. Remember, unnecessarily removing an animal from its nest - particularly a baby - can cause more harm than simply leaving it alone.
