Caring for Injured or Orphaned Animals

The Boone County Conservation District receives many calls about inured or orphaned wildlife. The BCCD does not operate a wildlife rehabilitation facility and does not have a licensed wildlife rehabilitator on staff.

Please do not leave animals in a box at our door. It only further endangers them and almost certainly seals their fate.

Please call during normal business hours and we will provide you with a contact number for a licensed rehabilitator.

In the meantime, keep the animal warm, quiet, and away from people and pets.

Do not let your children hold it. DO NOT FEED AN INJURED ANIMAL.
