Treating Injured Wildlife in Montgomery & Beyond
It is important to know that in New York State, it is illegal for any person who is not a licensed wildlife rehabilitator or a permitted program to keep wildlife of any kind. Any veterinarian can treat injured wildlife, but only licensed wildlife rehabilitators are allowed to house and rehabilitate them.
Dr. Chaffer is a licensed New York State Wildlife Rehabilitator. Note that Otterkill Animal Hospital is only able to take sick or injured wildlife and cannot take orphans. Please do not take any orphan wildlife into your home as a pet – not only is it illegal, but these animals can be dangerous to all members of the family.
Remember the phrase: “If you care, leave them there.” You may also want to familiarize yourself with what to do if you find orphaned or injured wildlife.
If you have found a sick or injured wild animal, feel free to call us at (845) 205-7059 or visit the New York State Wildlife Rehabilitation Council’s website to find a rehabilitator near you.
