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.

WILD Florida Rescue

Quite a trip for WFR Gemma (the one jumping out onto the boat:) who was graciously assisted by Deputy Ruth and Deputy Doucette of Brevard County Sheriff's Office when this pelican at the Port was seen with hooks, line and sinkers attached to it and struggling. The Deputies were able to get Gemma out to the pelican safely and successfully. The bird was then taken to Veterinarian Donna Craig and Dale Craig for some quick stitches to repair a tear in its pouch and right back out to enjoy the Florida sun!! From its band we can see it came from Accomack County Virginia and was banded on 8/2019 as a baby.Thank you to our wonderful Deputies who continue to help us with rescues and our safety as well as our compassionate Vets!!! "It mattered to this one"!!! GODSPEED!!! ...

We would like to welcome Jenn to the team! Jenn has already been a huge help and was part of the coyote rescue as well! We are so happy about all the new team members joining us on our mission 😊🚑
This northern gannet was hanging out on this boat for about 2 days and needed a rescue. It’s common that these birds are exhausted from migration by the time they get here and need time to try to recuperate before getting back out there 💛👍

This branchling great horned owl was spotted on the ground this morning. WFRs Amanda and Alice went to check it out. Both parents were still around and keeping very close eye on their little one! At this stage they are able to get back into the tree themselves and will end up on the ground a few more times. Parents will also tend to them and feed them on the ground if necessary.
Mom called the little one back over to the tree she was in without any assistance from us!
We never want to take babies away if unnecessary. We love that these owls are such great parents! 🦉❤️🙏
Thank you to our rescuer Alice for the amazing shots! 📷
