WILDLIFE WE TREAT AT THE WILDLIFE RESCUE CENTER
The Wildlife Rescue Center is permitted by the Missouri Department of
Conservation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to treat sick and/or injured
native Missouri mammals (except deer), reptiles, amphibians, water birds*,
and game birds* for rehabilitation and release to the wild.
Wild mammals such as opossums, rabbits, squirrels, etc.
Wild reptiles such as turtles, lizards, and snakes
Wild amphibians such as frogs, toads, and salamanders
In addition to permitting restrictions, the Center may suspend admission of certain species due to capacity limits, especially during the busy baby season (March through September).
*Wild Birds We Can Treat:
The Wildlife Rescue Center treats wild water birds such as ducks, geese, and pelicans, as well as wild game birds such as turkey and quail.
Wild Birds We Cannot Treat: Small wild birds such as songbirds (eg. robins, doves, finches, etc.) are treated by Wild Bird Rehabilitation in St. Louis, MO (Overland). Birds of prey (eg. hawks, owls, eagles) are treated by World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, MO. Please contact these organizations directly if you have a wild bird in need of their care.
