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.

Friends, our team has been hit by covid, the flu and worse ( this includes techs and a Veterinarian). We have officially closed for the week, However, we will still handle rescues with the volunteers that can still run (less than 1 per day) 😳 so please continue to leave your emergency messages on the hotline. If you do not get a call back please find your nearest wildlife rehabber or facility. You can find this information on FWC site "sick and injured wildlife", click on permitted wildlife rehabilitators. Volunteers and those calling in all are also stressed about gas cost, we will do our very best to get to each and every animal we can but remember to be considerate and patient. We will all get through this. ❤️‍🩹 ❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹 💪
