    Diamond Rock Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic
    Deb Welter, Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator
    2030 Diamond Rock Road
    Malvern, PA 19355

    Deb Welter is licensed as a Wildlife Rehabilitator by The Pennsylvania Game Commission. She has worked in wildlife care and rehabilitation since 1998 and since 2005 it has been her sole pursuit. She continues to update her wildlife management practice through education, seminars and professional organizations and is a member of NWRA, PAWR, IWRC, NYSWRC, NJAWR and Red Rover.

    The DRWRC facility is a wildlife mammal clinic and the only rehabilitation clinic in Chester County in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Located on private property, DRWRC contains a triage and isolation area, nursery facilities and both indoor and outdoor pre-release caging. Working closely with our veterinarian, Dr. Ed Frankel and his staff at the Honeybrook Animal Hospital assures the best possible medical and surgical care for our highly stressed patients.

    DRWRC is staffed entirely by unpaid professionals and trained volunteers.  At the present time, we are not looking for additional volunteers.

    The Clinic is busiest in the Spring and Summer when the majority of patients are infants that are orphaned or somehow separated from their mothers. Regrettably, most of these situations could be avoided if people would first contact a Licensed Rehabilitator before relocating any wild animal.

    Orphans are raised using the correct formulas and foods for each unique species. Critical protein and fat nutritional needs at the infant’s early developmental stage will make the difference between a healthy juvenile suitable for release or an animal with metabolic bone disease or worse that can never be released. Each species has differing requirements for being independent, but when they are old enough to care for themselves, they’re released in a suitable area, preferably close to where they were originally rescued.

    Injured animals are received year-round and wildlife advice is a phone call away at 610.240.0883.

    It is very important that wild animals remain wild and not become too comfortable around people. Therefore our facility is not open to the public and we do not offer tours.
