Willowbrook treats injured, ill and orphaned native animals to DuPage County. We do not accept skunks, bats, deer, or trapped nuisance animals. We do not accept nonnative animals, including European starlings, house sparrows and pigeons. We also do not accept native wildlife raised as pets, as efforts to reverse any taming or imprinting are unsuccessful.
Willowbrook may have species-specific admission criteria. In the case where an animal does not meet that criteria and is unable to be treated at the center, we may be able to help rescuers and other agencies find other licensed wildlife rehabilitators or referrals.
Commercial and portrait photography in DuPage forest preserves requires a valid still portrait photography permit in the photographer's possession. Please see the photography page or call Visitor Services at 630-933-7247 for more information.
