The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is not able to accept wildlife. Please take wildlife to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
Always talk with a licensed wildlife rehabilitator first before picking up wildlife. Be sure to assess the situation and exercise caution.
For any assistance with wildlife, please consult with a licensed wildlife rehabilitator:
PAWS Wildlife Center
West Sound Wildlife Shelter
Raindancer Wild Bird Rescue
Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife
National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association
Many state and federal laws prohibit the handling or keeping of wildlife unless you are licensed to do so. Licensed wildlife rehabilitators are trained to care for many types of native wildlife and have the proper equipment to provide appropriate diagnosis and care for these animals to help return them to the wild.
