📣 PSA: Exciting Update from New England Wildlife Center! 🌿

Attention, nature enthusiasts and animal lovers! We have some fantastic news to share with you all. Our beloved wildlife center has just unveiled its brand new wildlife admissions entrance, making it easier than ever to bring in injured or orphaned animals.

Here are the details: If you wish to bring us an injured animal please give us a call first and upon arrival simply drive around the right side of our building following the clear signs. Our aim is to streamline the process and ensure a smoother experience for both our dedicated veterinary staff and the animals we care for.

Our hospital has been relocated from the second to the first floor, allowing us to provide improved isolation facilities for animals while they undergo thorough examinations to rule out any contagious diseases. This upgrade will enable us to deliver even better care to our wild friends.

As you may know, we are currently in the midst of baby season, the busiest time of the year for wildlife. So, if you ever come across a wild animal in distress or have any questions related to wildlife, please don't hesitate to reach out to our wildlife helpline at 781 682 4878. Our knowledgeable team is here to assist you.

Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to preserving the precious wildlife of New England. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of these remarkable creatures.

We heart you, Steven!!
