Local Wildlife Rehabilitators
While the Lake Attitash Association cannot help rehabilitate any wildlife, we recommend working with the following local wildlife rehabilitators. You can also visit Mass State Rehab Listings.

They accept injured birds and wildlife, and if they can be treated, they will provide first aid; the bird/animal will then be sent to a rehabber before being released into the wild. Link wildlife.tufts.edu also provides advice on how to capture and crate injured wildlife.

Spring and summer are the busiest times of year for our wildlife hospital!
Because there are so many wild babies and other wildlife in need of medical care, our “beds” fill up quickly. When the hospital is full, we cannot admit new wild patients until we have room available to provide care. This policy ensures that all of our patients are given the highest quality veterinary treatment and care.
