UP Wildlife Rehabilitation is a group of home-based, volunteer-only, wildlife rehabilitators that covers Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga and Ontonagon counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Our goal is to rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife and return them to the wild whenever possible. Please never hesitate to call if you find an injured or orphaned animal. Leave a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Tax-deductible donations, which make up most of our support, can be sent to 42057 Archambeau Rd - Chassell, MI 49916 or be given directly to any of our volunteers. You can also donate on our website or Facebook page.
