Wild Animal Acceptance Policy
Willowbrook treats injured, ill and orphaned wildlife native to DuPage County, including eastern chipmunks, eastern cottontails, mink, muskrats, opossums, gray and fox squirrels, woodchucks, small rodents, raccoons, coyotes, foxes, weasels, songbirds, birds of prey, waterfowl, migratory birds, turtles, snakes, frogs, salamanders, and toads.
We also help other agencies and rescuers find licensed rehabilitators for animals our center does not accept, including those found outside of DuPage County. We offer nest boxes for healthy squirrels and raccoons.
We accept native mammals and birds raised as pets and will attempt to reverse any taming. If efforts are unsuccessful, an appropriate permanent home cannot be found for the animal or it is unable to survive in the wild, it will be humanely euthanized.
