Wildlife Rescue of Dade County is located in Miami and rescues all native species of wildlife. Although we do not have the resources to pick up every injured or orphaned animal, we do give advice over the phone about the situation and how best to help the animal in question.
Our organization has two licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators on hand to professionally and legally care for every animal that comes into the center. We also work closely with local Veterinarians and wildlife specialists all over the world to provide the best care possible for every patient.
We are dedicated to ensuring every animal we release into the wild is fit to survive. This includes preparing baby animals for survival and making sure all injured animals have healed 100% before release.
Get involved- We love volunteers! Due to the fact that the animals we receive are wild we handle them very minimally. However volunteers are always needed for sprucing up cages, preparing diets, and feeding the baby animals when needed. We also always need volunteers for fundraising, grant writing, and construction projects.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release (back to the wild) the injured, orphaned and /or displaced wild animals, native, to South Florida.
Wildlife Rescue of Dade County provides free educational programs to schools and community organizations.
We train, equip, and deploy, worldwide as necessary, personnel to assist local groups in animal rescue after disasters.
We are recognized by the internal Revenue Service under section 501 (c) (3) of the federal tax code. This means the the amount of a donation to Wildlife Rescue may be deductible from taxable income. We permitted by the State of Florida to solicit contributions and are legally incorporated as a tax exempt charity.
