ANIMAL RESCUE & REHABILITATION

What do I do with a wounded animal?

The Darien Nature Center receives many calls from concerned residents about found, injured and abandon animals.

Birds, rabbits, deer and squirrels are some of the more common animals that make their way to our door.

If you have an injured or orphaned animal, please do not drop it off at the Nature Center. The Darien Nature Center does not take injured animals, we do not have the required state license. Please contact one of the local rehab facilities/persons listed below or click on the link for valuable information.
