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.

Two baby opossums were shaken out of their mothers pouch when a German shepherd attacked her. The homeowner immediately locked the dog up , called in for help and searched for any babies on the ground while waiting. She was able to see where the mama went which was everything to us as opossums don't generally come back for dropped babies. Mother looked well and after checking the two babies out we extended them to the mother who was growling and angry and protecting her others. While her 2 cried out for her she came to the forefront and we handed them back via a tiny strip of wood. "After they both made it back to her she stopped growling , tipped her ears towards me and sniffed at me". Without a doubt she understood we gave them back and for just a moment she was curious who had done that for her ๐Ÿ’“ With squeezed hearts we gotta say twas a good start this early morning with a very happy rescue! Thank you to Stephanie the quick thinking homeowner!!!๐Ÿ™ #givingbabiesback #bestoutcome ...

Jacob and Mason of Indian River Colony Club (pest control) called about a juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk that was sitting under a tree and not moving. They waited until we could get on scene ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿ’œ The hawk was taken to Florida Wiildlife Hospital for further evaluation. Remember, bird flu is still out there don't use bare hands to touch birds if you do need to handle them, try not to handle them and wash well after being near or touching the bird. We are a bit close for comfort here ๐Ÿ˜ฌ but all turned out okay ๐Ÿ‘Œ โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน ...
