Unless you see blood, a broken limb, or the animal has been in your cat's or dog's mouth, PLEASE call us first. Often times what you are seeing is normal for young birds as they learn to use their wings. We do not want to remove healthy babies from their parents. Parents ALWAYS to it better.
Click on the "I Found a Baby Bird" flowchart to the left for a full-sized version you can read or print and if you still have questions, then please call us at 801-814-7888
Please be patient when you call as our lines are very busy during the summer months; keep trying until you get through and we will be happy to help you. THANK YOU!
Since we opened our doors in 2009, we have taken in thousands of sick, orphaned and injured wildlife (most due to human impact) and have given them a second chance for life in the wild. Through wildlife education we hope to minimize our impact. As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of our amazing community.
We couldn't have done this without YOU--THANK YOU!
Woodhouse's Scrub Jay (formerly "Western" Scrub Jay)
We are run solely on donations. We can only provide these services with your help.
This program is run by people willing to give something that is so precious these days, time. What is the commitment required?
We do have community service opportunities available.
A huge challenge is just letting people know that we are here and that there is licensed professional help to assist with wildlife in need.
Like us on Facebook and get the up to date information on what is going on at the center then share it with your friends.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
A sitting vehicle is no good to anyone, but it could be GREAT for wildlife!
WRCNU accepts vehicles of all types, including boats and even airplanes!
The pick-up is free and your generous donation is tax-deductible.
