We are a group of home based, licensed wildlife rehabilitators, certified by The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife. We work out of our homes in Wilmington, Billerica, Chelmsford and Arlington, rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife brought to us by the general public or other animal rescue agencies (such as the Animal Rescue League of Boston or MSPCA). Injured animals are treated and orphaned animals are cared for until such a time as they are able to be released back into their natural habitat. Originally working individually, the ever growing number of animals in need of rehabilitation has brought us together to form one nonprofit rescue group to better serve the public and help the many different species brought into our care.
NEW ARC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We do not receive any state or federal funding and we are not compensated in any way. All expenses are out of pocket or from donations from the community and go directly to caring for the animals, toward expenses such as food & formula, medical care and supplies, capture equipment, cages, building materials and maintenance and all other services and supplies that are necessary to rehabilitate and release the animals that come into our care.
Species cared for are mammals and include, but are not limited to, raccoons, squirrels (gray, red & flying), cottontails, skunks, possums, chipmunks, fox, coyote, mice, groundhogs, and bats. We help all wildlife in need to the best of our ability and species such as reptiles, raptors and birds we do not rehabilitate, however we can usually recommend appropriate rehabilitators that do handle those species.
