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.

WILD Florida Rescue

A poor turkey vulture was entangled in fishing line and hanging by its legs from a tree when a couple spotted it and raced to get it down. Then they called for help as the bird was now on the ground and badly injured. WFR Raechel and Meechele captured and picked up the vulture and took the bird to care. No the bird is not being choked, we promise πŸ’™ Vultures have projectile acid like puke as a defense and we must secure the head away from us. This poor poor bird sustained obvious painful wounds do to the entanglement " DISCARD TACKLE PROBERLY PLEASE and if you all ready know that PASS FORWARD THE INFO! It affects all wildlife πŸ™β€πŸ™

One of the most thoughtful people I have met "Cathy", has jump started our "save a rescuer, help us help them help you" project by donating a gift bag with gift cards ...Thank you Cathy!!!πŸ˜‡ The idea is that very often volunteers are in their own vehicles covering more calls than they expected within a wide range (brevard county). We would love to be able to get those volunteers surprise gas cards to help with gas . Other gift cards as a thanks is also appreciated and a nice gesture which we can award to dedicated volunteers. We are asking that if you are looking for ways to help our team that contribute if you are able. 🎁 WFR will make sure each card is given to volunteers and shared according. We would love to see gift cards come in with personal words of encouragement for the recieving volunteer. Taking care of wildlife is an amazing job but there is no dought that it is often a tough job!!
If you chose to participate in this way please send to :
