When Humans Are Sheltered in Place, Wild Animals Will Play

Do you have wildlife out your windows? Birds and animals are always around us, but in these times spend more time on the streets than we can. Send us a message with video or picture of what wildlife you are seeing in the Sacramento region. Goats? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/01/science/coronavirus-animals-wildlife-goats.html

Goats in Wales; coyotes in San Francisco; rats, rats, everywhere: With much of the world staying home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, animals have ventured out where normally the presence of people would keep them away.

COVID-19 Notification to the Public

Due to recent recommendations and mandates set by Sacramento County regarding Covid-19, we are making operational changes to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and animals. First, all volunteers have been asked to shelter at home, but staff members are still working. Although our mission is the rescue, rehabilitation and release of local wild animals, there is no higher priority to our entire operation than the safety of our employees, volunteers and members of the public that bring us animals, supplies and donations.

Our lobby is closed but we are available for animal intakes 10am - 6pm, seven days a week. An intake table will be located just outside of our lobby for all incoming wildlife.

Intake procedure: If you have contracted or are suspected of contracting the COVID-19 virus, please have someone else bring us the animal. Outside our front door, you will find additional instruction for leaving the animal and giving us information ... See more

Let us overload you with some cute animal pictures that are currently in the care of WCA or our wonderful home rehabbers.

If you find an orphan, please call our Hotline and leave a message at (916) 965-9453. Not every baby needs to be brought to a home rehabilitator so please give us a call so we can help you decide what to do😁

Today is #nationalemployeeappreciationday !!! A HUGE shoutout to our animal care and administrative staff here at Wildlife Care Association! We are so grateful for all of their hard work and passion that they put into their jobs to take care of all of the animals. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to save the countless lives of wildlife. If you ever come by our facility, be sure to thank them for all of their hard work! This job is not easy, but is extremely rewarding and worth every minute! Go team!👍🏽

Hummingbirds are the smallest bird species and here's a look at how small their nests and babies are. These baby hummingbirds were about 4.0g which is less than the weight of a nickel
