Comprehensive Care

Highly experienced Wildlife Hospital staff and volunteers provide comprehensive diagnoses and treatments for our patients utilizing x-rays, blood work and more. WildCare’s staff veterinarian guides treatments and protocols, and ensures that WildCare’s wildlife patients receive the best possible care.

Help Our Hospital

All of our patients have their own specific dietary requirements – hence our hefty grocery bills – and we work hard to ensure that they are ready and able to fend for themselves when released.

Help ensure the continued care of all our wildlife patients!

Volunteer in the Wildlife Hospital

Lend a Hand!

Join over 250 active volunteers on our Wildlife Hospital volunteer team and help us rehabilitate patients for release.

Our volunteers provide the majority of feeding, cleaning and care for all our patients including mammals (such as raccoons and squirrels), water birds (from ducks to pelicans), raptors (such as hawks and owls), reptiles, and hundreds of songbirds such as robins, sparrows, jays and mockingbirds. Volunteers in our wildlife rehabilitation hospital learn species identification, proper handling, hygiene and safety precautions, physical therapy regimens and hand feeding techniques.
