WildCare Inc. offers professional care for sick, injured, and orphaned animals with the hope of returning them to the wild. Since 2001 we have treated over 16,000 mammals, birds, and reptiles.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Indiana has rolling hills, woods, lakes, and streams that support everything from federally endangered bald eagles to our threatened warblers, from protected Eastern box turtles to our least known weasels which are of special concern, including our bats, which are dying by the thousands from a fungus. Most of the tax supported agencies either will not accept wild animals, or they euthanize them. As more and more habitats are destroyed, more conflicts are occuring with cars, pets, and chemicals

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will allow us to give continuous care to wildlife year round, by allowing us to maintain food, medical supplies and equipment needed to house and rehabilitate injured wildlife. It will also allow us to maintain staff needed to run the center and offer education programs to area schools, youth groups and many more.

Potential Long Term Impact

The future impact of this project will allow us to keep providing much needed care to our wildlife offer information to callers as well as outreach education programs for over 7,000 people a year; a high-value learning environment for over 35 interns each summer; 20 interns each fall and a place to bring sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife.
