Important Guidance from Tufts Wildlife Clinic

Please call us at 508-839-7918 and wait to receive a call back before coming to the clinic.

 

Animal Drop-Off

Hours of Operation
  • Monday through Friday: 8:30am to 5:00pm
    Please try to drop off by 4:30pm so we have time to admit the animal before we close.
  • Saturday and Sunday: 8:30am to 5:00pm
  • Closed: Thanksgiving and Christmas Day
What To Do If The Clinic Is Closed

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.

If you have found a sick or injured wild bird, please read Precautions for avian influenza (HPAI)

If you have found a raccoon, skunk, woodchuck, or bat, which poses a high risk of rabies, please refer to the information here.

A Note About Healthy Baby Animals

It is important to note that Tufts Wildlife Clinic does NOT accept healthy baby animals or those who are orphaned or abandoned. In those situations, please find a Wildlife Rehabilitator in Massachusetts.
