Everyone at Wildlife Care is so appreciative of the tremendous community support we have. We are now starting our 42nd year of helping sick, orphaned, and injured wild animals in the greater Sacramento area, and we could not do it without you.

We took in just shy of 6,000 animals in 2016 and have started 2017 busier than normal due to all the storms this winter. Things like 27 swifts (birds) at the same time; all covered in mud when the rains washed away their nests.

Hatchlings in early March, about a month earlier than normal, just to name a few. We would not be able to help all these animals if it wasn’t for the generous support of members of the community and the giving hearts of hundreds of volunteers.

Thanks to BDOG, 2016 was the first year our organization has been able to cover all of our expenses since we moved to our facility in 2008. Less than 5% of our income stems from government funding.

We hope we can count on your support on Tuesday, May 4th, 2017 for the Big Day of Giving 2017.

2017 has already started out much busier than the previous several years and we are already in need of more volunteers than usual. We have revamped the volunteer training program and have a new volunteer coordinator that really doing a great job making sure we find the right position for everyone that wants to help WCA help the wildlife brought to us.
