Injured/Orphaned Birds

Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort (A.W.A.R.E.) is a good place to start. Their phone number is 678-418-1111 or you may reach out to them via their webste at or email at


The Chattahoochee Nature Center is also licensed to rehabilitate injured birds or prey, reptiles, and amphibians. They may be reached at 770-992-2055 or at their website at


Your local veterinarian may also be able to refer you to a license wildlife rehabilitator.


Finally, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division maintains a list of licensed wildlife rehabilitators that may be helpful.
