IWRC's hotline handles thousands of queries from wildlife rehabilitators each year. If you are not a wildlife rehabilitator but require assistance for a wild animal, please visit the Emergency page and click on Find Rehabilitator to find a rehabilitator in your area.

IWRC's Hotline is a service of the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council. The Hotline is designed to help wildlife rehabilitators with all questions related to wildlife in crisis.

The Hotline is comprised of teams of rehabilitators and other professionals who are expert in their field.

A query to the IWRC Hotline will usually be answered within 24 hours, although the turnaround can be as little as a few minutes to a few hours.

Hotline volunteers accept some queries from members of the public who require assistance but who live in an area where there are no wildlife rehabilitators. In these cases, rescuers are talked through problems and every effort is made to link the rescuer with a professional who can help.

At this time, IWRC does not have the resources to handle public information questions.
