Wild animal babies will again be born this spring, but many will never know what it’s like to be loved and cared for by their mothers. 90-95% of the babies that arrive at Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. have been separated from their mothers by humans, as a result of tree trimming, car accidents, relocation, and other fatal events. For 13 years, we have taken on the responsibility of these tragic outcomes by providing shelter and care for these helpless babies until they are older and healthy enough to be released back into nature.


In 2012, we cared for 124 babies that consumed 157 pounds of formula (pre-mixed), and this year, we expect many more babies.


We are a 501(c)(3) charity that receives no state or federal funding, and has been struggling through these tough economic times, in order to continue helping orphaned babies.

Without Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. these babies will die or may be killed by animal control officers!

We don’t want to turn any babies away, so please donate! Thank you for your generosity!


2014 UWR Calendar 

For 13 years, Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. has been a home-based, non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical care, nourishment, and shelter to injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife throughout Massachusetts until they are healthy enough to survive in their natural environment, a process that can take a few weeks to a year. We specialize in rehabilitating small mammals, babies and adults alike, such as raccoons, squirrels, foxes, muskrats, opossums, skunks, and porcupines.

Approximately 75% injuries and ailments of our patients 95% of the incoming orphaned babies have been separated from their mother are caused by human interference, such as car accidents, tree trimming, and trapping.

In order to lessen these tragedies, Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. not only provides a temporary safe haven for these animals, but also strives to address common misconceptions about wildlife and educate the public on how to humanely and safely resolve issues with wild animals.

Urban Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity that receives no state or federal aid, and has been struggling through these tough economic times, in order to continue helping wild animals in need.

We don’t want to turn any animals away, simply because we don’t have the funds, so please support our critical work and make a donation today!

Thank you for your generosity!
