The Center

Established in 2013, the center previously consisted of  licensed wildlife rehabilitators working privately to ensure wildlife in need was properly cared for. As of 2019,  a temporary public location  was secured and will be opening in early 2020. Staffed by licensed wildlife rehabilitators and dedicated volunteers we will be able to provide emergency care and interim housing to the wildlife in our community. Help us reach our goal of securing a permanent center!
