Amid the COVID 19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Dayton Valley Wildlife Reststop is accepting injured and orphaned wildlife. Please read this special notice regarding our policies during this time.
The safety of our staff, volunteers, and community is essential. This policy includes all members of the general public as well as rescuers. If you find an orphaned or injured animal in need of help, please call Dayton Valley Wildlife Reststop 775-246-0470. We will discuss safe drop off protocols with you by phone. Our priority is to keep our animal care team healthy and safe so they can continue to focus on caring for our residents. Please do not come to the center. You may get an answering machine but your call will be returned.
If you find injured or orphaned wildlife please place it in a box away from pets and children. Please have an adult make the call as care instructions will be given. You will need to help arrange transport for the bird or mammal. We appreciate your cooperation and support at this time!
