Elaine Conners Wildcare is proud to announce the completion of our education facility, the Butler Education Center. With the construction of this new building, we are able to meet donors, host education workshops and train interns and volunteers without disturbing our patients that are in recovery in our rehab area. As we settle into our new Butler Center, we will be holding informative public programs. Stay tuned for more information about our new conference facility!

Helping Injured & Orphaned Wildlife 

Elaine Conners Wildcare Center provides professional and compassionate care to local injured and orphaned wildlife in need. Although most of our animals are baby birds and small mammals, we also have worked with injured and orphaned bobcats, deer fawns, moose calves, as well as many hawks, owls and smaller falcons. A state-licensed facility in both NH and ME, the center is also federally licensed for avian species and accepts most wildlife in Carroll and Coos counties. The busiest time of the year at the Center is April through September, known as “baby season” when the young are born and hatched in our state.
