Tufts Wildlife Clinic receives many calls and visitors regarding sick, injured and found wildlife while it is open from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm on weekdays (please try to drop off before 4 pm so we have time to admit the animal before we close) and from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm on weekends.
After hours, it is important to keep the injured wild animal in a warm, dark and quiet place until the following morning, when you are able to make contact with Tufts Wildlife Clinic. If the issue seems life-threatening, you may bring the animal to receive emergency services at Foster Hospital for Small Animals at Cummings Veterinary Medical Center at Tufts University.
Please note: It is important to discern a life-threatening situation necessitating an after-hours emergency visit to Foster Hospital for Small Animals versus a trip to Tufts Wildlife Clinic the following morning. When prudent to do so, waiting to visit Tufts Wildlife Clinic may be the best option for the injured wild animal.
