Rescuing Injured Wildlife

Wings of the Dawn rehabilitators are trained and experienced in rescuing and rehabilitating all birds and small mammals. If you have found injured wildlife, or abandoned young wildlife, please follow this quick care guide and then call Wings of the Dawn at (603)428-3723. By phone, Wings of the Dawn can offer further advice as to what you should do to help the wildlife and will tell you whether it is necessary to bring the injured wildlife to Wings of the Dawn in Henniker or to another wildlife rehabilitation center that is closer to you.

Our Mission and Philosophy

Wings of the Dawn strives to provide the best wildlife rehabilitation services possible. With every rescue, our goal is to rehabilitate the animal back to full health and release it back into the wild. In the few cases that the animal cannot be released back into the wild, it is kept at the bird sanctuary at Wings of the Dawn, or it is transferred to another nearby wildlife sanctuary. 

Educational Outreach Programs 

Wings of the Dawn provides educational outreach to  various schools, camps and other events around New Hampshire. Our programs are fun and educational for everyone, both young and old. For more information, please visit our Educational Outreach Page.
