Wildlife rehabilitators are independent operators licensed by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR), but are not affiliated with the division. The DWR does not necessarily endorse any of these rehabilitators, but we do oversee their operations for compliance with the requirements of their Certificates of Registration. As independent operators, rehabilitators may accept or decline to accept injured or sick animals at their discretion.

*Certificates of Registration (CORs) are special licenses issued by the DWR that enable the licensee to engage in specified wildlife-related activities.
