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.

Double baby raccoon rescue day 🦝 It started off with a baby raccoon that fell from a very high nest at Walmart (in their outdoor garden warehouse). We looked it over and treated some scratches on its face, and then put it in a blanket near the nest. With no surprise mama came for her baby!! We also had some other baby raccoons and reunited with a sibling that we had picked earlier in the week. They are being rehabbed at Crystal's critter care 🐾 Thank you team!! ...

Citizen's with compassion❤️‍🩹Tuesday Melissa attempted to catch an injured gull but was struggling because it could still run. When the gull jumped into the ocean, Melissa still didn't give up and jumped right in after it 😳! When she was finally able to get the bird she wrapped it up in a towel. She was drenched as were her phone and other personal belongings but still Melissa only thought of the injured bird and drove it strait to the hospital without even thinking of herself 🏥 This person who obviously wears her heart on her sleeve deserves a group hug, thank you Melissa 🫂!! We are looking for volunteers ☺️🚑 ...

Matt P and Carley K were WFR volunteers when we had such few people our shifts were midnight to midnight often more than one night in a row, it was incredibly taxing. But after pushing through and giving all youve got , I think it just becomes a part of you. These two who have either left the state and /or are doing other great things were at the Florida wildlife Rehab Association in Orlando this week. They heard through one of our dispatchers that there was a heron hanging from a tall pine tree and no one available from WFR to rescue it. The two called me asking "can we respond"? And sent me a photo of their jump bag saying "that they are always ready". And they drove strait to Melbourne to save the bird! Sadly the bird had been dead awhile. They quickly spotted another adult bird just a foot away from the hanging body and a young one alone in a nest. They cut the bird down so that the birds couldnt see it and they instantly reunited.❤️‍🩹 🫶❤️‍🩹 Thankful for the compassion I see never left these two humans!! ...
