Animal Rescue League Wildlife Center
Help Us Come to Their Rescue
The Animal Rescue League (ARL) Wildlife Center is a fully licensed wildlife rehabilitation clinic who specialize in the care and treatment of injured, orphaned, and ill native Pennsylvanian wildlife. All animals are admitted to our clinic with the goal of releasing them back into the wild as healthy individuals.
If you have found an injured animal, the Center urges you to please wear gloves and place it in a box and DO NOT HANDLE the animal or try to feed it as many foods, including milk and bread can make animals extremely ill. Handling wildlife is very stressful for them and they can pass serious diseases onto you and your family.
On the rare occasion that an animal cannot be released back into the wild, the Center will keep the animal on site and use it for outreach and educational purposes. Wildlife Center personnel holds educational outreach programs for schools, scout troops, retirement homes and more.
The clinic admits over 2000 animals every year and maintains a release rate near 65% percent which is nearly twice the national average.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center employs 10 and is always in need of volunteers, those interested must be at least 16 years of age. Internships are also available for college students.
Facility tours are offered daily, but requires those interested to call ahead at least a day in advance.
The Center is open 7 days a week, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
