March 2021 Update on New England Wildlife Centers response to Covid 19

Although the public cannot enter our building because of Covid 19 —

The New England Wildlife Centers – Weymouth and Cape Cod – have been caring for  sick, injured and orphaned wild animals.  We never stopped.  Our fledgling rescue service has been on the scene helping.  Seagull Team Six is coming to rescue wild animals.

Odd Pet Vet Update:   appointments for existing clients. If you need an appointment please call (781) 682-4878. Mary Ann, Olivia or Erica will be happy to help you.

There are different safety measures to keep everyone safe.  Animals are dropped curbside with paper work.  You are given a short questioner which asks if you have been exposed to Covid-19 or if you are experiencing any of the symptoms.  The administrator making the appointment will walk you through it.

If you have a true medical emergency for your pet animal, please go to your nearest veterinary hospital that is open and has an ER. You can also leave a message for us and we can provide triage and connect you directly to South Shore Veterinary Centers of America’s Emergency Service. We are working in partnership with them to make sure any animal family member needing emergency help has access.

If you have any questions, please call Nina Flaherty, NEWCs’ Assistant Director, at (781) 682 4878 x119.

Please be safe.  Wear a mask.  Adhere to Social Distancing.  

Our animal and people community are precious to everyone at New England Wildlife Centers.
