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, while protecting the next generation of wildlife through education and community outreach.

We provide care to all native species of wildlife, and provide treatment for 1500-3000 animals each year. We do not receive any State or Federal funding, and rely on donor support to save the lives of injured and orphaned wild animals. 

Your support  helps in two ways:

Supporting the costs of medical expenses, food, and care for the increasing number of patients we see each year.  Many animals stay with us for 3-6 months before they are ready to return to the wild, which means large quantities of fish, meal-worms, seeds, fruits & vegetables, rats, mice, and hay.  

Assisting our Wildlife Education program in their mission to protect wildlife through community education and outreach. We're helping to inspire the next generation of wildlife supporters and conservationists to protect the planet we all call home.

Please help support our work by donating and sharing our campaign with other animal lovers.

Thank you for helping to give wild animals a Second Chance at Life!

The support of donors like you allows us to save lives, and most recently the lives of these two endangered owls. There are less than 100 adult Barn Owls remaining in Indiana, and without conservation efforts this beautiful species might disappear from our night skies. A family of Barn Owls can eat between 5,800-10,000 mice & voles in one year! They play an important role in the ecosystem, helping keep rodent populations in check. We released these two females in a perfect barn owl habitat, and hope at least one of them will decide to stay and nest in Monroe County.

This sad little fox kit was bred illegally in captivity for the pet trade, right here in Indiana. When he was rescued he was in bad shape, suffering from starvation, dehydration, parasites, and wounds from the small metal cage he's been kept in. Our volunteers spent weeks nursing this critical baby back to health, and his story has become an important part of our education program.

Please consider supporting us today. Your donations are tax deductible, and will allow us to provide care for the next baby fox that arrives at our door.

This Great Horned Owl arrived several months ago starving to death. An examination showed that it did not have any physical injuries and once it was treated for parasites it began to slowly gain weight. Once this owl moved out of critical care and into a large enclosure, we discovered that the bird exhibited some very un-owl like behaviors, leading us to believe it may have been suffering from some type of poisoning.

There were no obvious neurological or physical abnormalities, behaviorally though this owl was telling us something was wrong. We've scheduled a full blood panel and diagnostic work-up to see if we can solve the mystery of what lead this apex predator to become so debilitated. In cases like this, your support makes all the difference. We don't receive any State or Federal funding and the work WildCare does to save wild lives is made possible by your support. Please consider making a tax deductible donation today if you would like to help this patient and others just like it. Every dollar counts and goes directly towards supporting the wild patients in our care.

Every day during the spring and summer, orphaned wild animals arrive at our door. Often cold, scared, sometimes injured and hungry, they depend on your support for treatment. WildCare treats nearly all species native to Indiana, birds, mammals, and reptiles. This week we're spotlighting the Eastern Cottontail Rabbit (ECT), a delightful animal many of us enjoy watching from our windows. On average, it costs $100 to rehabilitate and release an orphaned baby rabbit. If you love rabbits and would like to support their care, donate today to our Baby Season Fundraiser.

Your gift is tax deductible and is applied directly to the care, medical treatment, and housing of injured & orphaned wildlife.

I have used Wildcares a number of times. Usually with turtles with broken shells I’ve found on our roads. It is a great relief to have a local resource to take our injured wild life to for the appropriate care. Thank you Wildcares.
