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.

Yesterday Jonathan Shaban, Spectrum News 13 Photojournalist called in to be sure he was doing the right thing when he found some baby squirrels. He made a nest with some palm fronds and placed them gently inside in hopes that the mother would return for them. He did perfectly!!! He watched from afar and patiently waited and it wasnt too long before he gave us the happy news that mama squirrel came for her babies!!!! We love these guys at Spectrum News 13!!! 🐿🐿🐿🐿 Thank you Jon for sharing and caring!!!! Jonathan Shaban, Spectrum News 13 Photojournalist ...

So so sad to see birds with broken wings sometimes due to heavy winds but often car stikes and often not a good outcome. Im so glad we were able to capture this great blue heron so he didnt die alone, starving wet or over heated. Crystene is not new to these types of rescue but sure good to see young Zeus learning to assist and succeed. Im so sorry as humans we tip the blance negatively for our wildlife and only hope that we can tip the scale back...at least a little πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’™ ...

So proud of our team today!! Not the best rescue outcome but outstanding response .In the suffocating heat a bobcat was hit by a vehicle and dragging his back legs he got across the street and into some thick brush. We made a search and rescue call for help to our team members . Very quickly all responded with a text and those free came out to help locate and capture the bobcat. Crystene, Alice, Jess, Nancy, Amanda, husband and family, Corinne and daughter, Eddie, Dusty, Zeus and Heather and even Leo Cross Florida Wildlife Trappers, Inc. as well as his Crew joined us very quickly in order to help rescue this cat. We had eyes on him several times but he hid deep in the brush and swampy area. Although we did not capture the bobcat and we called the search for now we will still set a trap and attempt a capture. We hope he just had a bad clip and needs a rest. We know he may be badly injured though and if he is we hope to capture but I am extremely proud that the team even our newbies were out in the heat and stopped what they were doing to help. We are grateful to have caring people like these. We didnt take many pictures but Alice did capture the beutiful bobcat on camera. Praying for this guy/gal tonight. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌThank you ALL! ...
