Rehabilitating Wildlife

Angel Wing:
In young birds wrapping the wing and binding it against the bird’s flank for a few days along with feeding the bird a more appropriate natural diet, can reverse the damage.
A diet that provides sufficient amounts of vitamin D (the “sunshine” vitamin), vitamin E and manganese may also be indicated.

Wildlife rehabilitation is in no way an attempt to turn wild animals into pets. Injured wild animals are held in captivity only until they will be able to return to their independent life in the wild. Fear of humans is a necessary element for them and every effort is made to minimize human contact to prevent the domesticating/taming of the animals in need of rehabilitation. Wildlife rehabilitation is a complex and time-consuming process.

    What a great care and educational service WFF provides in our Roosevelt Island community! And thank you, as well, for partnering with the Animal Care Center of NYC, along with so many other organizations, helping the ACC drastically lower their euthanasia numbers!

    Hi there – our daughters aged 11 and 8 would like to volunteer at the cat shelter. Can you advise the options they might have to do this? Thanks

      Thank you for your message. Please fill out the application and send it back to us.
      We will then send you an additional waiver that applies to volunteers under the age of 18.

      Best Meows,
      The WFF Team
