The New England Wildlife Center (NEWC) is a twenty-two year-old humane, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving wildlife and the environment through the operation of a wildlife teaching hospital, education, advocacy and public health and habitat intervention.

The Center's wildlife teaching hospital positively impacts wildlife today by treating thousands of ailing animals each year and releasing them back to the wild. It is one of the few organizations working on the front lines, saving lives.

The Center headquarters is located in a brand-new state-of-the-art 3-level 22,000 sf hospital and education center situated on 13 acres in South Weymouth, MA. You can tour the center's new “green” environmentally-friendly facility in South Weymouth and view their extensive specimen collection; call ahead for a guided tour.

The Center's education programs are available to schools and have taught science & nature programs to more than 100,000 elementary and secondary school students. Education programs are designed to promote positive behaviors and policies toward wildlife and the environment.

The Center's Wildlife Hospital has treated approximately 37,000 ailing wild animals representing 225 species, everything from hummingbirds to snapping turtles, turkeys, warblers, swans, fox, deer, rabbits, squirrels and many others.

The Center's website also offers links and numbers for animal care facilities.
