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.

Russell and Katelyn Bienias saved this brown pelican. It was first trapped under rocks on the rivers edge ,when he was freed from the rocks the peli plopped back into the river being cautious of the humans. The couple quickly took out their kayak and when the bird understood they were trying to help as he was near drowning the pelican reached for them and all but climbed aboard for his ride to dry land. They then used a sling to safely carry him onto a pool float and made a plan to transport. The public doesnt always realize it but they are also our volunteers, the rescuers of these animals, even just by calling for help. We thank you all , you are our heroes ๐Ÿ‘โค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ ...

Here is Ella, Erin and Kat at the Blue Lagoon Kava Bar in Merritt Island tenderly watching over this little bird after it ran into the building. They waited for WFR to get the bird and rush it to care. Remember anytime you find a bird who has just hit a building or window leave the bird in a open box while you wait for help, it may get its bearings together and fly off in the meantime. Thank you ladies for the care!!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๐Ÿฆ ...
