Centre Wildlife Care is funded only by donations!
Your contribution goes a long way to help us provide professional care to these orphaned & injured wild animals.
This year CWC provided care to 2000 wild animals, which included bald eagles, owls, raccoons, songbirds, raptors, and many more species.
Artemis is a juvenile that came to CWC during the pandemic. She has a wing injury and cannot be released back into the wild. She will stay at CWC as an educational ambassador.
Bobbles is a Barred owl that has vision issues and unable to hunt on her own. She is one of our educational ambassadors.
This bald eagle came in earlier this year suffering from lead poisoning. He is still with us because he had a high level of lead and had multibple other infections that needed to be treated. He is recovering well and we expect to release him soon.
Every year CWC gets many injured or orphaned fawns when mama is hit by a car. They are rehabilitated at CWC and released back into the wild.
We get dozens of orphaned babies every year. We feed them a special diet, specifically made for them. When they are old enough to survive in the wild, they are released in appropriate habitat.
We also get many injured birds and other animals that are non-releasable due to their injuries. We always try to find them the best forever home we can.
We also receive confiscated animals from the Game Commission that are illegal to own as pets in Pennsylvania. We have special licensing from the PA Game Commission, the Fish & Boat Commission, the US Fish & Wildlife Service and the USDA to possess wild animals and some non-native wildlife for educational outreach.
We also accept and care for reptiles, including snakes and turtles.
We have the necessary permits to rehabilitate reptiles and use them for educational outreach.
Sonic the hedgehog is one of our newest educational ambassadors. He was part of a confiscation since they illegal to have as pets in PA. We assist the Game Commission placing these animals in zoos and educational settings. However, Sonic is one of the few that will staying with us.
