Who Are We?
The Mercer County Wildlife Center is a state
and federally licensed facility that cares for injured, ill, and
displaced native wildlife. The Center provides these animals with
medical treatment and a temporary refuge before releasing them back
into an appropriate wild habitat.
The Center strives to preserve our natural wildlife by accepting
and rehabilitating birds and mammals from the central New Jersey
area. As human development continues along the east coast corridor,
suitable habitat available to wildlife decreases. This leads
to more human contact, resulting in an increased risk of injury
to both animals and humans.
How Do We Do This?
Mercer County Wildlife Center is open 365 days a year and is directed
by a licensed, full-time wildlife rehabilitator. Two additional full-time employees, a handful of seasonal employees,
and more than 70 trained and dedicated volunteers and interns provide care to almost 2,000 wildlife patients that are brought to the Center each year.
Although all services we provide are free of charge to those who
bring animals in need of care, we greatly appreciate donations.
Any donation made to the Center is tax deductible. Learn
