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.

A multiple bat day 🦇 A mom was with a few babies in an odd place and a hawk grabbed the adult bat right infront of the reporting person's eyes 😬 😔. Mean while another bat was found . WFR Gemma and Leah cared for the babies while they waited for Jenny the go to for bats. If you find a bat on the ground and out of place call for help, do not bring them inside as they "easily misplace themselves" 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡 ...

We had to remove the "feral" pig story due to some privacy issues before we could respond to comments. But yes we agree it appeared that the pig either had once been a pet set loose or was being fed by someone nearby but was living wild and sady was aggressively attacking pet pot belly pigs by continuing to break into their enclosure and would not stop even after being chased away. Feral by definition (especially of an animal) in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication. If you missed our post a woman was desperately calling for help after standing between her 3 pot belly pigs and a young feral with a hoe who was attacking them for hours😔 We were able to get her some help and fortunately all pigs are okay in this situation. We had to take down the original post due to some privacy issues but thank you for all your comments. Please remind friends not to feed wild animals, it may not always end as well as this. AND please dont discard or set pets "free". If you need friendly advice we are always happy to help. ❤🐖❤

Down in Melbourne Beach some lawn care guys accidentally cut a bush with a mourning dove nest and babies came tumbling down. With mom now on the ground watching her babies the lawn care owner and WFR Jenn made a new nest and quickly placed the babies in. Within 10 min we saw mom fly into the nest and snuggle up to her young ☺️How precious to give back to moms 🕊 #preventhumanimpacts #giveahelpinghand ...

Gotta mention our hero pick 🎖when I pulled off the side of the road to secure things a Security Guard drove up to the ambulance and jumped out with "questions", what was I doing? Who I was picking up? And has anything happened to the geese? Just then a woman flew in along side of us. "Whats happened to the geese"? "Whos getting picked up"? And did we grab the owl yet"? Gotta give these 2 a hand for being such good wildlife patrol and keepin an eye on things! 😁😉 🤝👏💪 ...
