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.

In the middle of keeping livestock from getting into the road Ag Marine Deputy Tanner, spotted a brown pelican on the side of the busy highway not doing well. When all was safe he called in on behalf of the bird and waited with it in order to secure the rescue. The pelican was banded and most likely from the north, cold and possibly frost bitten. Hopefully he will be free for release soon! Thank you Deputy Tanner for looking out for wildlife 👊 ...

I dont like posting this negative BUT it is the reality, our reality and the reality of the Veterinarians we depress with animals that can't be helped. Gemma CVT, Dale CVT and Dr. Donna Craig had to put this very healthy tortoise down because of the extensive injuries and there was nothing else that could be done. It was hit by a car in a 5 MILES per hour speed zone!! 😳😖😡 ✋️❗️😢 ...
