Wildlife Rehabilitation Facilities List

Most rehabilitators do not provide services to pick up wildlife. They rely on you to get these animals to them. Most work out of their homes and are not on call 24 hours a day. Be courteous and mindful of this when you are calling for their assistance. Never drop off animals at a location, unless you are instructed to do so. Wildlife rehabilitators often volunteer their time and efforts to this chosen profession, but have lives outside of it as well. Please respect their capabilities, as rehabilitators often specialize in certain species of wildlife and establish limits on the number of animals they can accept and properly care for.

Wildcare

In addition to operating our Wildlife Hospital, we also provide numerous other resources to the local and larger community.

Our Living with Wildlife Hotline is available any time of day or night to help anyone deal safely with the wildlife they encounter.

We’ve also been a leader in developing new and innovative ways to address problem wildlife issues humanely with our WildCare Solutions service.

Our Nature Education programs reach young and old through a powerful combination of on-site, in-classroom, and in-the-wilderness programs.

Our Volunteer Programs allow people a hands-on way to make a real difference to wildlife and to the environment.

And when wildlife needs us to advocate on its behalf, we take a stand — and help you do so, too.

marinemammalcenter

The Marine Mammal Center's rescue range extends along 600 miles of central and northern California coastline from San Luis Obispo through Mendocino counties.

To facilitate our mission of rescuing and rehabilitating marine mammals, we have field offices located in San Luis Obispo, Monterey, and Mendocino counties. We rely heavily on volunteers living in each part of our range to assess stranded animals, rescue them if necessary, provide triage and emergency care, and transport the animals using a relay system to our full-service veterinary hospital in Sausalito. At our hospital, other volunteers work in partnership with veterinary staff to rehabilitate the animals. All volunteers are welcome to participate in releases.
