Call 205-663-7930, ext. 2 — 8am-8pm, 7 days a week

Please don’t use email or social media to request help! Call the Help Line and we’ll call you back!!

You must leave a message to be assisted by a trained wildlife specialist. Specialists are busy caring for animals and monitor this line on an hourly basis from 8am to 8pm every day of the year. The only way to talk to a wildlife specialist is to leave a message, and they will return your call as soon as they are able. If the animal does not have obvious injuries, please wait for a return call BEFORE bringing birds to us. Thank you!
