There are a number of ways to get involved with the Wildlife in Need Center! Feel free to contact us to figure out how you or your group can get involved. The Wildlife In Need Center admits as many as 3,000 wild animals a year so we need your help! From admissions and answering phones, providing hands-on routine care for injured adults and orphaned babies, to providing a safe place for our patients to start a new life, as a WINC Volunteer you can make a difference in the lives of our wild neighbors everyday. Short on time? Not to worry, click here to make a donation to help cover the costs of food, medicine, housing, and outreach.
