Information on Injured or Orphaned Animal


Please note: The Kalamazoo Conservation District and the Kalamazoo Nature Center do NOT accept injured or orphaned animals.


If you are concerned about an injured or orphaned animal, please visit the Michigan Department of Natural Resources website for a list of Michigan Licensed Rehabilitators BEFORE moving, touching or otherwise handling the animal. These community volunteers are specially licensed to care for and rehabilitate injured animals and can give you more information on your specific situation. Only licensed wildlife rehabilitators are legally able to possess abandoned or injured wildlife. Unless you are licensed, it is illegal to possess a live wild animal, including deer, in Michigan.

Please rememeber that many baby animals spend most of their day alone, waiting for their mothers to return.
