Injured or Abandoned Wildlife


As much as we would love to personally help injured or abandoned wildlife, Briar Bush is NOT a licensed rescue or rehabilitation facility and therefore legally cannot take these animals.


If you have found injured or abandoned wildlife, read this important information BEFORE you approach it! Then, if you are able and willing to bring the animal to one of these rehab facilities, please call before dropping off an animal.
