Please note

Please call in advance of transporting sick or injured wildlife. 804-378-2000. We only accept animals by appointment only.


Calling in advance to coordinate a drop-off time allows us to prepare for the emergency treatment of your rescued wild animal. In addition, there are times we may be on a release of a patient, responding to a field rescue, or attending patients in our outdoor caging. Please be sure to call to coordinate with our staff before transporting an animal to our center.


We do not accept walk-ins. Please call to schedule a time with one of our team members to assist you with your rescued sick or injured wild animal.


We are not affiliated with our downstairs neighbor, Winterfield Veterinary Hospital. Winterfield Veterinary Hospital does not accept wildlife for rehabilitation or treatment. In addition, Winterfield cannot admit patients on our behalf.


We share a lobby with our downstairs neighbors, Winterfield Veterinary Hospital. Winterfield Veterinary Hospital has asked that wildlife not enter their lobby. Please leave all wild animals in your car long enough to let the Winterfield Veterinary Hospital Receptionist know that you are here for our wildlife center. They will notify us of your arrival and we will come down to meet you at your car. Following this protocol prevents wildlife from being stressed by any companion animals in the lobby and prevent any potential spread of disease.


Open by appointment only Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. Last admission of the day is at 4pm.


For after hours emergencies for threatened and endangered species please call 804-614-4325.


Please note, we will only have emergency coverage available for threatened and endangered species, to include Bald Eagles at this time due to capacity issues. You can help us resolve our capacity issues so we can be available after hours to assist animals in their time of need by making a financial contribution today. Donate Today!
