What to do if you’ve found healthy wildlife

If you have found an animal that is not injured or orphaned, please leave it alone. Wild animals have the best chances for survival in the wild. It is illegal to relocate wildlife in Massachusetts. Tufts Wildlife Clinic ONLY admits sick or injured animals. We do not have any ambulatory service to pick up wildlife.

For further assistance on where and how to transport, please refer to the "Who to Call for Help" section on this page.
