At CMWR, we strive to successfully nurture, rehabilitate and release injured or orphaned indigenous wildlife to their natural habitats; Educate the local community in environmental, conservation, and habitat destruction issues; Provide information and assistance to the public. 

CMWR is located in Lauderdale County and takes in wildlife from all counties located in Central Mississippi including Kemper, Noxubee, Lowndes, Winston, Choctaw, Neshoba, Clarke, Newton, Attala, Leake, Scott, Holmes, Yazoo, Warren, Hinds, Madison, Rankin, Simpson, Smith, Jasper, Wayne, and Jones. We will gladly assist with any wildlife call in the state of Mississippi and help locate a licensed wildlife rehabber nearest you! 


Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release sick, injured and/or abandoned native Mississippi Wildlife and release them back to their natural habitats. In order to do so, CMWR is not open to the public. We strive to release the animals we admit back into the wild successfully so they must maintain a healthy fear of humans. Even as rehabbers, we keep human contact extremely limited. The wildlife in our care are also in a compromised condition so we want to keep their stress levels at a minimum. Being in these conditions, this makes them very susceptible to many zoonotic diseases so we can not risk anyone contracting a disease from the animals.

Central Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc is a 501 (c)(3), all volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the emergency and long term care of wildlife native to the state of Mississippi. CMWR was formed to meet the increasing need of wildlife assistance in Central Mississippi. 

CMWR, Inc. volunteers admit and care for hundreds of wildlife animals each year with the goal of successfully releasing each animal back into the wild.
