WildCare Inc.

WildCare Inc. was incorporated in the spring of 2001 to not only provide professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife so they may be returned to the wild, but also education outreach programs focusing on the value of sharing the planet with our wild neighbors.

Summer 2014 at WildCare Inc.

It's June 19th, and we're at the peak of our busy season!  Every room and cage is filled, and the outside cages are filled and babies inside waiting to go out in them.

 

Nearly 600 animals are currently in care, including hundreds of eastern cottontails, songbirds, Fox and Gray squirrels, Woodchucks, Mink, Wood Ducks, Raccoons, Skunks, Hawks and Owls, and more...

 

Every day at WildCare we are able to provide care for injured and orphaned wildlife--and accept new patients from the public, Thanks to each of you who donate to our cause!

 

As we continue caring for the tiniest newborn baby mammals, bottle feeding fawns whose momma lost their lives protecting their young or newly-hatched birds, we are also busy releasing those who are ready. Today, we released 6 Fox Squirrels and 4 songbirds. On Saturday of last week we had a very special release of two songbirds in memory of 2 young boys that were burned in a fire. It means a lot to us and the families.

 

Every one of the animals we help has a different story of how they came to us.  Each one is a fighter. We could not do what we do without each of you. Thank you for helping us create the happily ever after for all of our wildlife.

Happy Hoildays

Everyone here at WildCare Inc. would like to  wish you all a  very Happy Holiday Season.

We are very grateful for all of the wonderful people who support our mission to save the lives of native wildlife.

Recently we have taken in several raptors and small mammals that have been hit by cars, attacked by dogs, or affected by storms. They will be safe and well cared for here at Wildcare from 1 of our 90 volunteers we are very lucky to have. We make sure they get the medical care they each need, proper diets and natural habitat enclosures. Once they are healthy we release them back in the wild where they belong, this year alone we have taken in 2100 mammals, songbirds, reptiles and raptors. Our release rate is 67% which we are very proud of. We are very blessed to be able to do what we love from the help of our supporters like you.

We are looking forward to 2014, we have several goals to work on and meet. Here are just a few of the things we are in need of still. We really need land and a larger building. We also need new carriers, a 100 foot flight cage, a new deer enclosure, and a new mower to just name a few. Your donations have and will continue to  help us get those needed things  We will continue to work hard and give all the animals the best care we can.

A look at 2013 baby season and how you helped.

WildCare Inc. has had both a very challenging and very promising year. We are getting more support and leadership from volunteers and seeing more groups asking for our outreach programs in 2013 than ever before. Which is great for us, this means we are working towards our mission teaching others how to live with wildlife.  WildCare’s foster volunteers saved more than 1000 lives by caring for and housing our wild babies at home by giving one on one care when needed. We've released more than 1500 birds, mammals, reptiles and Birds of Prey back into the wild this season with several more almost ready to go, we  could not have done so without your support.

The challenge is meeting the overwhelming demand for our service. We need more staff, more fosters, more funding and more space. What we do is hard, meaningful and so important.  Everyone is so committed
to becoming even more effective at doing this “valuable” work. We write a new chapter in our story every day. We always are met with challenge, or animals that needs a little more than what we really have to give but we always find a
way and know that it will make a difference. You help make the difference by supporting what we love
to do, and what needs to be done. Thank you.
