Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release

wildlife rehabilitation, and release, wildlife rescue - Red Tail Hawk Release with Beth and Laurel 2



Working to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife from Nevada County and surrounding areas of the foothills and valley below.

For over 25 years, we have provided highly trained rehabilitators dedicated to serving wildlife in our cities, riparian communities, oak woodlands, mixed conifer forests, chaparral, and  grasslands.

About our Organization

Wildlife Rehabilitation & Release is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife. Each year our team returns to the wild over 100 different species of native wildlife, including mammals, bats, songbirds, and raptors.
As a non-profit, we are completely funded by our volunteers and by generous individuals such as yourself. If you would like to contribute to our cause, we thank you wholeheartedly. The wildlife thanks you as well.


Getting Involved

We are getting ready for our 2020 season and are seeking volunteers.  We will be holding three informational meetings in February at our Intake Center.  If you are thinking of volunteering but aren’t sure how you can help, please consider attending one of these meetings:  Saturday Feb. 22, 11:00, Sunday Feb. 23, 3:00, and Thursday Feb. 27 6:30 pm.
If you would like to become a supporting member, please check out our Support Us page.  All members are invited to sign up for the monthly electronic newsletter. Some of our members donate monetarily; others prefer to donate household items. Please take a look at our wish list to help us give our animal friends a second chance at life.
