At this time, we are unable to accept any injured or orphaned wild birds. Please do not bring wild birds to Sylvan Heights.

Wild birds pose a potential health danger to our birds, especially the rare and endangered species.

In many cases, it is best to leave wildlife alone.  Please contact a wildlife rehabilitator before you attempt to take in a wild animal.  If the animal is already in your possession, please call a licensed rehabilitator as soon as possible.



To find a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area, you can visit these websites:

NC Wildlife Helpline - Please note: Sylvan Heights Waterfowl is listed as a wildlife rehabilitator in Halifax County on this website because we hold a rehabilitation permit. However, we are not able to accept injured/orphaned wildlife at this time.
