Important Note: Please call 414-431-6204 before coming to WHS with an animal.
Due to the current prevalence of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), commonly called ‘bird flu’, in our region, it is of vital importance that you do not bring in an animal to the wildlife hospital until our team has talked with you directly and has instructed you how to safely do so.

At the Milwaukee Campus, the Wisconsin Humane Society's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center provides care for over 5,000 injured, sick, and orphaned wild animals of over 150 different species annually. Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and return them to the wild. We are able to provide service to Milwaukee County, and occasionally surrounding counties, although we always refer callers to their closest wildlife rehabilitation resource. In addition to helping animals from Milwaukee County at our urban wildlife hospital, at our Wildlife Reception Desk we also give humane advice to people who have concerns about injured, sick, orphaned or wild animals in human living environments throughout our state and even outside of Wisconsin!
