At the Animal Humane Society, every animal has a story, domestic or wild. Together, with Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release, Inc. (WRR), we accept and treat injured and orphaned wild animals at our Golden Valley facility. We are the only animal welfare organization in Minnesota to hold a permit with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, which allows us to have specially trained and licensed wildlife rehabilitators on staff. These technicians provide care and comfort to injured and orphaned wildlife.
Our wildlife placement services are utilized by private citizens and several community law enforcement agencies. Having a wildlife placement service available provides animal control and community service officers with the resources necessary to respond to calls from residents about injured and orphaned wildlife.
For immediate information on what to do if you have found injured, orphaned or nuisance wild animals, please review our Wildlife Resource library located in the sidebar on the left side of this page. For additional assistance call our Wildlife Exam Department at (763) 489-2223.

No appointment is needed for dropping off wildlife.
