Celebrating 25 Years in the Upstate

I Found an Animal

Immediate assistance for sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife is essential. Wild animals require specialized medical care and diets. Even a few hours can mean the difference between life and death, or ability to be returned to the wild. Do not attempt to care for a wild animal yourself. 

If you find an orphaned or injured wild animal, call or text one of our trained wildlife rehabilitators listed below. Please allow them time to return your call as we are all volunteers. When leaving a message, give your name, phone number, species of animal and the city you are in. This list does not include all of our rehabbers, only the ones directing calls for the species listed here. Be assured we will get your call handled efficiently and as quickly as possible! Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release.

You may also leave a message on our hotline at 864-233-0339.

**Please note we are unable to take songbirds at this time. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Calls pertaining to songbirds may not be returned.**


For temporary emergency care of injured or orphaned wildlife until a rehabilitator can be reached, we ask you to

1) Keep the animal in a warm, quiet and sheltered place. If you can safely put it in a box with a lid, that is best!
2) Do not feed or give any liquids.
3) Do not handle excessively!
4) Keep all children and pets away.

If you find an animal in need, call us right away! 864-233-0339

No matter where you are, good sources of help include your local humane society, animal shelters, or your local veterinarian.



If you're trying to find a rehabber outside of SC, search for your state's wildlife department and rehabilitators list.

If you find an animal in need, call us right away!
