Wildlife Hospital and WildCare Solutions service

WildCare’s wildlife hospital treats more than 3,000 sick, injured, and orphaned wild-animal patients every year. Our goal? To nurse them all back to health so they can be returned safely to their natural habitats.

Our WildCare Solutions service offers a humane solution to nuisance animal problems by providing home inspections, repairs, animal removal and more.
