Hospital Admission Hours

We admit sick, injured and orphaned wildlife at the NEWC Wildlife Hospital, located at 500 Columbian Street in South Weymouth:

Tuesday through Friday
10:00 am – 2:00 pm

PLEASE CALL AHEAD! 781.6872.4878 

Please call BEFORE bringing a wild animal or bird to the hospital to make sure we are able to help you.

Spring and summer are the busiest times of year for our wildlife hospital!

Because there are so many wild babies and other wildlife in need of medical care, our “beds” fill up quickly.  When the hospital is full, we cannot admit new wild patients until we have room available to provide care.

This policy ensures that all of our patients are given the highest quality veterinary treatment and care.

Everyone at the Center is dedicated to protecting wildlife.

Visiting Hours

People of all ages are invited to visit NEWC to learn about wildlife and experience nature.  Observation windows into our wild baby nursery and hospital wards, as well as our outdoor rehabilitation areas allow visitors to see the many species receiving care at our wildlife hospital.
