Wildlife Rehabilitation

Oregon’s licensed wildlife rehabilitators care for sick, injured and truly orphaned wildlife. They are permitted by ODFW and governed by a set of rules.

What should you do if you see a sick or injured animal?

Call ODFW, OSP or a licensed wildlife rehabilitator before picking up or moving any wildlife. More information.

What should you do if you see a young animal alone?

Leave it where it is unless you saw its parent die. Most animals leave their young to forage or hunt. Removing a young animal from the wild greatly reduces its chances of survival and it is illegal.

If you see a bear or cougar, contact ODFW or OSP. Do not attempt to assist it or assume it has been abandoned. Oregon Administrative Rule does not allow for Wildlife Rehabilitators to rehabilitate bears or cougars.

Removing or “capturing” wildlife from the wild and keeping it in captivity without a permit is against the law. It is considered a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $6,250 fine.
