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

I am a real pain In our teams butt about PPE ( personal protective equipment) we train and when we feel we've got it we keep training and that's why most of our rescues look "pretty" or easy but this job can be dangerous and can get ugly quickly. Remember Josh, the tree climber? God Bless him for helping anytime we call ❤🙏. Josh answered to our call for help with a baby hawk re-nest and said he could go on his own and our busy volunteer said ok as she was tied up (not our normal policy or procedure and then this happened 😔 This was also an eye opener for Josh who is an excellent and brave tree climber. He sent us this message:: "It gave me a whole new respect for it , it could Have got me in the jugular and I could’ve been hanging up there with no way to get down luckily I had a second line thrown up in there so I could repel down I got on it and repel down as quickly as I could but the first 10 feet of getting down she hit me two more times I had my buddy here with me to tell me when it was coming but the damn thing was so fast he could barely even see it when it came in in less than a minute it hit me three different times"!
Remember ALL wildlife can be dangerous teeth, beaks, talons, legs. Be safe, over safe and if you don't feel safe call for help. Wildlife people train in animal handling and rescuers for these rescues and can help or guide. We hope Josh heals quickly and thank goodness he had those repelling skills!!! This could have been any of us. 😳🙏💙❤️‍🩹
