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 this year.
When the young fledge they are camouflaged in a lovely warm brown and cream color designed to match the rocky surroundings of their traditional nest sites. They molt into a beautiful blue/grey plumage, with a white breast that has blue barring and a distinctive dark blue hood.
Bobbles is a Barred owl that has vision issues and unable to hunt on her own. She is one of our educational ambassadors.
This juvenile bobcat was caught in a leg hold trap and needed to have a leg amputated because of the injuries. Once he has recovered, he will be placed in a zoo.
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.
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.
