The Medina Raptor Center is a state and federally licensed facility dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of birds of prey. The center is in its twenty-fifth year of helping Ohio's wild birds and treats over 400 birds each year. Our mission and focus also include educational outreach programs that utilize live birds of prey to educate children and adults about raptors, their role in the ecosystem, and the need to preserve their habitat. We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization and support of our programs is tax deductible.
Find a Baby or Injured Bird?
Note: To protect the Center's birds from the current Avian Flu outbreak, water fowl will not be accepted at the Center. If you find an abandoned baby or injured water fowl contact OWRA (Ohio Wildlife Rehabilitators Association) or the Ohio DNR (Division of Wildlife) for help.
If you find an abandoned or injured bird go to our Rescue Information page to determine the best way to handle the situation. br>
If you have a bird that needs medical care call us immediately at (330) 667-2386. Do not e-mail us since we may not receive your e-mails until it is too late to help.
Injured or abandoned mammals (deer, raccoons, opossums, etc.) can no longer be treated at the Center due to the large number of injured birds coming to the Center. If you find an injured mammal please contact OWRA (Ohio Wildlife Rehabilitators Association) or the Ohio DNR (Division of Wildlife) for help.
