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.

People often ask "Is it really worth it to drive that far?" And when we're nearly finishing a 15 hour day and the phone rings with an emergency over an hour's drive away at 11 at night we sometimes wonder the same thing. But when we do reach our patient, we are soon reminded of the reason we rescue. It may not be important to the caller, the state, the county or the species as a whole, but any rescue means saving an animal from a slow death or a painful death and when the cards are dealt in our favor, it means a second chance at life. This was our patient, picked up as the clock rolled to midnight. She was hit at nearly 40mph by a pickup truck. The driver never saw her coming. He hit the brakes, called WFR and after instructing them how to get her safely in a box we hit the road and arrived to see an owl we were sure would not survive the night, or even the long drive home. She had blood in her eyes, nares and mouth and was in and out of consciousness. She was stabilized, driven back, re-stabilized and monitored for another hour before we finally turned off the light, not knowing what we'd find in the morning. To our surprise, this is what we found!

More raccoon mischief! A Mama raccoon made a den inside a pallet of mulch at Home Depot. The nest was spotted when a shopper noticed one of the babies dangling from the side of the top shelf pallet. Some caring employees carefully brought the pallet down so we could have a look inside. Mom poked her head out of the top and the jig was up. She instantly bolted from the scene leaving WFR to grab the five babies out of the mulch. We set a live trap for her that night and sure enough she was captured by morning! Mom and babies are now together getting used to their temporary den for a few days before making the long drive to their new home far away from people.
