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 one of our trained wildlife rehabilitators listed below. Updated April 19, 2017

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.
