Wildlife in Need is is a capture and delivery service for injured/orphaned wildlife. If we do not capture the animal, we cannot transport it.
If the animal is already captured/contained, go to the Pennsylvania Association of Wildlife Rehabilitators website www.pawr.com to locate your nearest wildlife rehabilitation center. They will advise you on transport options for the animal.
Wildlife in Need Emergency Response of PA (WIN) is a volunteer, non-profit, statewide telephone dispatch system for capturing and delivering injured, and orphaned wildlife within the state of Pennsylvania. We:
WIN reduces the number of phone calls that our law enforcement agencies (PAGC, DCNR), veterinarians and wildlife rehabilitation centers need to respond to from the general public. This gives the staff more time to work with injured, orphaned or sick wildlife. Especially in the spring and summer, the number of phone calls become overwhelming for the centers.
WIN is solely run by volunteers and we rely on the generosity of our donors and sponsors to cover the expenses incurred for our operations. These include the annual cost of the dispatch system, and training and supply costs for our volunteers. You can donate below. You can view our expenses, and our wish list of supplies for our volunteers on the donate page. EIN#: 82-3317562.
If the animal is already captured/contained, go to the Pennsylvania Association of Wildlife Rehabilitators website www.pawr.com to locate your nearest wildlife rehabilitation center. They will advise you on transport options. If the animal needs capture/containment, please contact us.
