We cannot accept animals outside of our normal operating hours, which are 8:30 am - 5:00 pm seven days a week. Outside of these hours, we ask you to keep the animal in a secure box in a quiet place and leave us a message at 508-839-7918. We will call you back promptly as soon as we open.

Instructions: If you have found a raccoon, skunk, woodchuck, or bat, which poses a high risk of rabies, or if you have found a carnivore such as a coyote, bobcat, or fox.
