Animal Aid

When wildlife needs a helping hand, WildCare is there! Our programs work together to give animals a second chance and to make a real difference in their survival.

The Wildlife Hospital helps injured, ill and orphaned wildlife recover from negative interactions with humans (approximately 90% of patients are admitted to our Hospital due to negative interactions with people or our stuff), while our WildCare Solutions service works to stop animals from becoming injured in the first place by providing practical, humane and effective solutions to nuisance wildlife problems.

From songbirds to squirrels, raptors to reptiles — our hospital provides emergency medical care and on-going aid to sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals from throughout the nine Bay Area counties.

Our goal? To nurse them all back to health so they can be returned safely to their natural habitats. Learn more...

Meet some of WildCare's recent wild animal patients and learn their stories! Juvenile and adult animals come to us with illnesses, wounds or broken limbs. In the springtime, many of our patients are orphaned babies who need constant feeding, cleaning, and attention. Meet these amazing animals and find out what brought them to the Hospital and learn about their medical care!
