Abused or Neglected Animals
Each township, village, county and city has its own reporting structure and enforcement policies on abuse and neglect cases. If you are concerned about the welfare of an animal, please call the local law enforcement agency to file a neglect or abuse complaint.
We get a lot of calls about ducks in sewers, raccoons stuck in a garbage can, a bird fallen from a nest. And while we would love to help all animals in need, we are not licensed to respond to or care for wild animals. In the State of Wisconsin, care for wild animals may only be provided by licensed wildlife rehabilitators. If you have found a wild animal you believe is in need of assistance, please contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator or the WI Department of Natural Resources.
