If you've found a wild animal in need: Call us immediately at 218‑491‑3604.

If we are unavailable when you call you can check out our “Does This Animal Need Help” resource. Never give food, water, or other remedies found online to a wild animal until you have spoken with a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Only move an animal if it is in clear danger (for example, in the road).

Wildwoods is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, and to the reconciliation of humans and nature through education.


Help save sick, injured and orphaned wildlife by supporting Wildwoods.

We cover topics like what to do if you find a baby animal, why we do what we do, the effects of lead poisoning in eagles, facts you might not know about flying squirrels and more.

2017 Annual Fundraiser

Live music, locally crafted appetizers and beverages, and a silent auction to benefit wildlife

This is our biggest fundraising event of the year! Last year we raised close to $20,000 to help buy medical supplies and food for the animals we care for. Help us reach our goal this year of $35,000!

Plus, the community has asked us to build a specialized enclosure for the foxes we regularly admit. It will cost $15,000 to complete and so far we've raised $3,000. Members of the community have donated some wonderful items to our silent auction and proceeds from them will go directly toward the new fox enclosure.
