WildCare Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife so that they may be returned to the wild. We provide care and rehabilitation services to all native Indiana wildlife species, with the exception of deer. We also strive to help protect the next generation of wildlife through our education and community outreach programs.
WildCare Inc. holds permits through the Indiana DNR, USDA, and US Fish & Wildlife Service. We do not receive any State or Federal funding, and rely only on donor support to save the lives of injured and orphaned wild animals.
We provide treatment to around 3,000 animals per year and have taken in over 30,000 animals since we incorporated in 2001. Roughly half of our intakes are wild birds and reptiles and half are wild mammals.
WildCare Inc. relies on our volunteers who generously donate their time to help feed, clean, and ensure the best quality of care for our wild patients. A rehabilitation plan for each animal is determined by our Team Leaders who specialize in that particular species. Team Leaders are also volunteers who have full-time jobs outside of WildCare and who take phone calls from the public 7 days a week, year-round.
WildCare is governed by a Board of Directors composed of community members and licensed rehabilitators.
