Who Are We?
The Mercer County Wildlife Center is a state and federally licensed facility that cares for injured, ill, and displaced native wildlife. The Center provides these animals with medical treatment and a temporary refuge before releasing them back into an appropriate wild habitat.

The Center strives to preserve our natural wildlife by accepting and rehabilitating birds and mammals from the central New Jersey area. As human development continues along the east coast corridor, suitable habitat available to wildlife decreases. This leads to more human contact, resulting in an increased risk of injury to both animals and humans.

The Wildlife Center, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that supports the efforts of the Mercer Wildlife Center. Although all services we provide are free of charge to those who bring animals in need of care, we greatly appreciate donations. Any donation made to the Wildlife Center, Inc. is tax deductible.
