ABOUT WILD CARE

Wild Care’s mission is to treat injured, ill and orphaned native wildlife for release, to prevent wildlife casualties through public education and live counseling, and to engage the community in conservation through volunteerism.

Since our founding, Wild Care has accepted over 24,000 wild creatures, representing 275 species of native birds, mammals, and reptiles. On average Wild Care receives 1,300-1,700 wild animals per year for treatment. Of those admitted, about half come to us due to injuries and habitat loss due to human activities. It is a vital part of Wild Care’s mission to help educate the public on ways they can avoid harming our animal neighbors.

We work with the community to positively impact the lives of wild animals through our counseling, educational efforts, and outreach.

Wild Care does not charge the public for our services to wildlife.

We accept wildlife regardless of a rescuer’s ability to make a donation and we never compromise quality of care or the dignity of an animal’s life for fundraising purposes.

We are constantly striving to preserve the natural history of Cape Cod and provide quality, individualized care to each of our patients.

We thank you for your support and commitment to the wildlife of Cape Cod.
