Sick / Injured WILDLIFE
Contact information for sick or injured wildlife:
1. The Raptor Trust:
The Raptor Trust is one of the premier wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. The Raptor Trust website provides instructions on what to do for an injured bird. They have drop off access 24 hours a day. They are located in central New Jersey
1390 White Bridge Road Millington , NJ 07946
2. Mercer County Wildlife Center, Lambertville
1750 River Road, Lambertville, NJ 08530
If you find an animal in distress, please call us at (609) 883-6606 and press 2. The animal may not actually need assistance and removing it from its environment may cause more harm. We will help you decide whether the animal needs care and, if necessary, ask you to bring it to the Center.
Before bringing an animal to us for treatment, please keep it warm and quiet. Handle it as little as possible and keep it away from pets and children. Do not feed the animal or force it to drink water! Any attempt to offer food or water may not be in the best interest of the animal and may actually, in fact, cause harm.
Bringing Patients to the Center
The Mercer County Wildlife Center cares for more than 2,300 animals a year – this keeps us very busy! Therefore, we are not equipped to provide a pick-up service for patients. If an animal needs care, we will tell you how to handle and transport the animal safely or make a referral.
We accept patients for treatment seven days a week.
Our hours are seasonal:
May through September
9:00 am to 6:00 pm
October through April
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
