Wildlife Emergency Phone Numbers

Below is information about 'helping wildlife' and Wildlife Emergency phone numbers.

“HELP, I FOUND AN ANIMAL!
The first thing you should do is contact a rescue volunteer to see if the animal really needs help being saved, or if it’s family is just away for a while. 
If you need to take it in, then please place the animal in a warm, dark, quiet area and DO NOT attempt to feed. 
Animals have a variety of different diets and attempting to feed the wrong food may do more harm than good."

— Mitzi Brabb Boles, Wonders of the Wild Rescue & Sanctuary – PAYSON, AZ

 

“WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER ORPHANED OR INJURED WILDLIFE…
Before you assume an animal is in trouble, wait and watch: young animals often are left alone for hours at a time while their parents gather food.
If an animal is shivering, obviously injured or if you know its parents have been killed, call the Wildlife Emergency Hotline at 623-582-9806.
If the injured animal is a large game animal, such as a deer, javelina, mountain lion, or bear, or a potential danger to handlers such as a coyote or large bird, call the Wildlife Emergency Hotline at 623-582-9806. (not domestic animals or livestock)"

— Adobe Mountain Wildlife – Phoenix, AZ
