Animal Updates

Thank you for caring and taking the time to bring an injured or orphaned wild animal to Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge.

We are a state and federally-licensed wildlife rehabilitation center that accepts more than 6,300 wild animals per year and receives no government funding. Our staff and volunteers strive to provide the best medical care and husbandry for the animals that are admitted to our facility. Our primary goal, in every possible case, is to rehabilitate and release back to the wild.

If you would like to inquire about the disposition of the animal that you admitted, please complete the required fields below. Emails are not answered daily due to workload, but they are answered a few times a week. Please refrain from calling to inquire about updates. Our phones are extremely busy with calls about incoming animals and it is important that we give those calls priority.

Please note the necessary wait times for requesting an update. These wait times are necessary for us to provide you with an accurate disposition, as issues can arise throughout the rehabilitation process. Many animals, especially babies, will be in our care for multiple months.

Adult animals: 7 days
Baby animals: 90 days

If you have not received an update within 3 business days and you have waited the appropriate amount of time, please check your SPAM folder before requesting again.  Emails will come from an unmonitored account,
