Happy 4th of July!!

Holidays are really awesome for us but the animals still need to be cared for. If you are a trained volunteer and can help out over the weekend, we could really use your help! Log in to volgistics and sign up for open shifts! Thanks!!

It has been a while so here is a dose of cute! This Northern raccoon was orphaned after its mother was hit by a car. We are so thankful to the rescuer who got this baby to us quickly.

It's the little things that make life better. Like the new pathways built by our community volunteers. For our volunteers it's also giving regional wildlife a second chance to live and that's a big deal. At WCA volunteers are the heart, hands and strong backs to save wildlife and improve the home of our heroes of nature! Right now we need more nursery help in the afternoons and early evenings. If you can help let us know and we can help you find the right path! volunteer@wildlifecareassociation.com

UC Davis Medical Center

We are so excited to share this story! The wonderful staff at the UC Davis Medical Center made this reunite a success!

Our four young peregrine falcons are still learning to fly. They began leaving the nest last weekend, but the early days can be challenging and exhausting. One of the falcons was found a block away from the hospital, wandering around on the street and being harassed by crows.
After being picked up by an animal control officer and spending two days with a wildlife volunteer, it made its way back to the med center’s nest thanks to Wildlife Care Association of Sacramento.

How do you get a peregrine out of a travel box? Carefully. Very carefully. Especially when mom is flying right overhead! #KeepingUpWithThePeregrines

Cottontail eating

This sweet Desert cottontail had a botfly larvae in its neck! The larvae was removed and it is on treatment for the open wound that was left behind. Caring for cottontails can be tricky but lucky for us it has a healthy appetite and is handling treatment well. It is nearing the end of its recovery and will be released soon!

Case R. is a local 8 year-old boy who set up a coffee and juice stand to raise money for us! He was able to raise over $100 in just a day! Case and his younger brother also raise mealworms at home. We use those mealworms to feed our animals and we are so lucky to have kids like him that take the time to raise the mealworms for us! He is certainly going above and beyond to help save local wildlife. Thank you Case!
