WILD CARE EXPANSION PROJECT
Celebrating 30 Years of Service
Since Wild Care’s founding in 1993, our mission has been to treat orphaned, injured or ill wildlife through professional Wildlife Rehabilitation; to reduce the numbers of animals impacted by human activity through Educational Outreach; and to help protect native Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts species and ecosystems through Advocacy and Conservation.
As we look forward to the next 30 years, we remain dedicated to providing quality care for the many animals that come through our doors. We’ve grown so much since our beginning in 1993. This important project will benefit wildlife by allowing us to work in a more efficient way, as well as the community by creating a better understanding of the animals that are so vital to the environment we share.
Create a new Cleanliness Room. The new Cleanliness Room will provide a well-functioning designated room to sanitize and disinfect linens, dishes, and animal enclosures. The existing Clinic Kitchen will then function for patient food prep only.
Create a new Education Center for Animal Admissions. The new Education Center and Animal Admissions will provide a warm and welcoming area along with an educational experience for persons bringing in animal patients. The existing lobby will be used as additional clinic space for animals in need of lifesaving care.
SV Design designed a freestanding Cape Cod shingle-style structure that will be home to Wild Care’s new education center. An additional room will have lofted storage and will provide a dedicated space to wash and sanitize necessities for animal patients of the clinic. Decks with ADA compliant ramps connect the new building to the main building and barn that house animals and treatment rooms. In response to the flood zone, SV Design elevated the building on piers. The new education center will be a vibrant refreshing space that will provide an educational experience for persons dropping off patients.
