Wildlife Resources

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.

WildCare Solutions Service

Are you experiencing problems with nuisance wildlife?  Are there raccoons, skunks, rodents or opossums living under your deck, in a crawl space or in the attic? WildCare’s certified specialists are trained in humane exclusion techniques that encourage the offending animal to move along. We then seal entry points to prevent the problem from occurring again. Find potential problems on your own with our 24-point Do It Yourself Home Inspection Checklist!
