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 C0-Founded WILD Florida Rescue, registered as a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Corporation.

Dear friends, please take note that we will be closed from June 18th to July 2nd. This was a tough decision to make. We went from 4 calls a day our first week in operation to our most recent busiest day with 57 calls!! Our time is spread thin. Just 4 calls down to Melbourne beach/Sebasian OR 4 calls to Titusville is 8 hours of our time and 8 hours worth of fuel. WFR needs to take some time focusing on ways to stay in operation and make some upgrades. Though we provide a free service, every call we respond out to costs us in gas at the least. If you need help during this time you can call the Florida Wildlife Hospital - 321 254 8843 or your local wildlife rehabber (you can find a list on FWC's web site.)
We will be working hard to secure WFR's mission in providing an emergency response for wildlife in need of help and those who call in for them. From the hearts at WILD Florida Rescue we thank you for understanding!💜

WFR responder "Jenny" released an osprey yesterday in Merritt Island who was picked up originally by WFR and taken to the wildlife hospital. The osprey was returned back to us and to our great surprise when it was released he was met by another adult from a nest with babies who all started communicating . The reunion was absolutely joyful . A good day!👍

A couple of fishermen on the river spotted this pelican wrapped up in fishing line and tied up to a tree. The fishermen called FWC and WILD Florida rescue for assistance. They asked us how to help the bird, what to watch out for, how to make the bird comfortable in handling ,they also sent us photos, they helped determine if the bird could be released and asked how they could avoid stressing any other birds nearby (all the right questions). The bird had no hooks and due to the perfect steps taken and quick action by these 2 fishermen the bird was set free unharmed. The perfect rescue !!!!! IF you see a hooked bird or hook one yourself we are here to help. Call our hotline we will come out or talk you through a rescue. Do not cut lines , cutting lines can lead to a horrible death and can lead to the death of other wildlife. THANK YOU !!!😎👍
