When the Animal Needs Help

Sometimes, when we find a turtle, snake, frog, salamander, or lizard—or a mammal or bird—they appear sick or injured. Often, a nearby licensed wildlife rehabilitator can help. This page may help you find one near you. (Or click the image below to download rehabilitator contact info as a PDF.)  If you found an injured turtle, this page will help you determine what to do (and not do) while you reach out to a wildlife rehabilitator: https://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/nongame/turtles-injured.html

You can contact Vermont Fish and Wildlife at (802) 828-1000 or fwinformation@vermont.gov.
