Our Mission

To provide a safe and compassionate emergency first response service for wildlife in need of urgent medical attention.

Due to the ever-increasing population and urbanization in the state of Florida, conflicts between people and wildlife are both inevitable and commonplace. Those conflicts; often resulting in life or death situations for the affected wildlife, require a rapid response by trained wildlife professionals. After recognizing the constant and increasing need for wildlife transportation and rescue, Heather Pepe Dillon and Matthew Buice Co-Founded WILD Florida Rescue, registered as a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Corporation.

UPDATE: Wonderful news!! After 4 days the 3 infant raccoons have been successfully reunited with their mother 🤸‍♀️! The babies just a few days old were cared for while continuously looking for mom. On night 3 she came , grabbed one and ran. We assume she just wanted to get her baby to a safe place and nurse since she hadn't for a couple of days and she never returned that night. Night 4 (tonight) we went to the location again, when she heard her babies yell she came right away almost right up on Adriane who hadn't yet moved from the wee ones! We got out of the way and caught a few seconds on camera which we have slowed down for you ❤. She was pretty quick in returning and grabbing her last little boy and that was it!! The ordeal for her and her little ones is over! 🙏🦝🐾🐾🐾 What a good feeling 💝 ...

Last week Brevard County Sheriff Office called in about a pelican with a wing stuck between a fender & dock at Port Canaveral terminal 5. Maritime Security Officer Joe George met WFR Autumn at the gate & quickly escorted her to the scene where Canaveral Port Authority staff Torre Martin & Dustin Radford were on the dock with marine unit Deputy Doug Postleweight on his boat already trying to free a desperate young brown pelican. The high tide was pushing the large fender tight against the wing. They had already tried pushing, wedging a shovel & pulling with the boat. Autumn began to worry, thinking what could possibly be used to be stronger than this tide? That's when BCSO Corporal Evan Hightower (not pictured) - showed up with a wooden 4x4. Autumn gently covered the pelicans eyes while he worked, manipulating the fender with the 4x4. After a few tries it wedged and created just enough movement for her to carefully extract the bird without causing further trauma to the wing. They were all so relieved to finally free this exhausted pelican. Then with the young pelican safe, Autumn was asked to attempt to rescue another injured pelican that was swimming alone nearby, unable to fly. She joined Deputy Postleweight on the boat who got Autumn close enough to scoop up this adult brown pelican! The pelicans were taken together to the Wildlife Hospital for care ❤️‍🩹 This was a grand group effort of persistence and compassion in order to save these pelicans. Thank you Port Canaveral Port Authority & BCSO Maritime Deputies and Officers we appreciate and love you!! 🙏 ...

We met "Ryan" with this stranded loon at Pelican Park, Satellite Beach and transported to the wildlife hospital. Thank you Ryan for the tender care ❤️‍🩹. One thing we want to share with the world, never stand behind a loon...they have proooojectile poop!! Mmhhhmmm! 😲😁☺️ . Remember, If you see a stranded bird this is the season for loons and gannets to start showing up. Remember to call our hotline or your local rehab to determine the best plan for the bird. Standings are normal, in some cases the birds need emergency care while others may just need to rest. We work with FWC as well as other facilities to determine the best course of action for the situation and species 321 821 7881🤓 ...
