Found an Injured Animal/Bird?
PLEASE DO NOT FEED!
Important rule of thumb:
If you can catch a wild bird or animal, something is very wrong. Healthy wildlife does not allow itself to be caught. The animal needs veterinary attention as soon as possible. Please do not wait! Due to survival instinct, wildlife will appear 'normal' until the very last few moments of life. Don't be fooled. Call us so we can help.
High Desert Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated the the rehabilitation and release of injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. We are Central Oregon's only 24 hour comprehensive wildlife rehabilitation center treating all wildlife - songbirds, birds of prey, waterfowl, sea/water birds, small mammals, fawns, reptiles and amphibians.
Wildlife in distress is an EMERGENCY and we are here to help, 24/7. Letting "nature take its course" is often not an appropriate solution. Approximately 99% of the animals HDWRR cares for are sick, injured or orphaned because of human activity.
We are also available to humanely help with urban wildlife conflicts (ex. squirrels in the attic, raccoons under a porch, birds in a vent, etc...)
High Desert Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation (HDWRR) is founded by a veterinarian and veterinary technician. Dr. Jeff Cooney and Jeannette Bonomo have 45 years of combined experience in wildlife rehabilitation.
