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.

Incredible work by everyone involved tonight. Thank you Leo Cross, Brevard County Sheriff's Office, and especially FPL! Their teamwork and cooperation brought an end to this poor heron's horrific ordeal. With two severely broken wings, suspended From an 80ft power line, this Great Blue could do nothing but wait for some of the most caring individuals we know to do what they could to get him down. The rescue lasted approximately 3.5 hours from start to finish, an eternity for us and even more so for the heron. The care and dedication put in to helping this animal could not make us happier. Everyone was determined to stay long after the sun had set to be sure the bird was brought to the ground safely, and as we loaded him into the truck, he collapsed, his tension lifted, and he relaxed for the drive back. Special thanks to our Veterinary Tech, Dale Craig who stayed up late, ready to receive the bird at approximately 10pm. Finally the worst was over.

WFR would like to thank those who continued to call in on the behalf of wildlife even during the time irma was coming through. We are also thankful to WFR team for consistently checking in on each other and offering help during this time. Please forgive us if we have missed your calls or messages, not all of us have power yet and some are knee deep in clean up, there are only a few of us. Phones are still in and out and so is the internet. We may get calls late or miss them but we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we do get them. Some of you have not been able to get through to our hotline at all. We hope that all issues are resolved by Monday the latest. In the meantime if you have injured wildlife you can bring them to the Florida Wildlife Hospital on US1 just south of the pineada causeway. Please note that their phones may also be out. They have been caring for animals around the clock so they may not get to calls even if phone is working . There are drop off cages outside if they are closed but animals will be brought in and will not be out long. Thank you and God Bless we hope you are all doing okay. ­čĺť
