About Nature's Nursery
Nature's Nursery Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation Education is a Non-profit organization located in Whitehouse, Ohio. We provide medical care to injured and orphaned wild animals, and conduct nature education programs for children and adults.

Our mission is to improve the well-being of Northwest Ohio wildlife populations and habitat through public education and rehabilitation of injured, ailing, and orphaned wildlife with an emphasis on coexistence.

We accept most injured and orphaned wild animals that are native to Ohio. However, due to state regulations, we cannot take deer, raccoons, or coyotes. We also do not take companion animals (dogs or cats), livestock, or domestic animals, including domestic rabbits and domestic ducks.

We do not list our physical address to avoid animals being dropped off while no one is at the office. Those animals have very little chance of surviving when we are not available. If you have an animal to bring to us please call 419-877-0060 for directions and an appointment time.

Found an animal?
Click here to see if it may need help. Never handle any bat that you have found, or allow children to come in contact with it. If you do, the animal will have to be destroyed so that it can be tested for rabies.
