Our Mission:

Wildlife Rescue, Compassionate Care, and Education Ambassadorship

At the Wildlife Center, we are committed to our mission of fostering community-based educational programs that offer diverse and enriching opportunities for volunteers and higher education students. In addition, we provide safe and permanent homes for exotic animals and wildlife in need, and raise awareness for our cause.

Our team takes great pride in our work, and we strive to expand our reach and inspire others to get involved. By providing educational opportunities for individuals of all ages and backgrounds, we hope to instill a deep appreciation for wildlife and conservation efforts. Our efforts also enable us to continue providing lifelong care and support for the animals in our care, while promoting our mission to a wider audience.

Our Vision for the Community

Looking ahead, we expect to maintain the crucial responsibility of providing lifetime care and safe housing for non-releasable exotic and wild animals. Alongside this, we anticipate a growing demand for our specialized professional training and education programs.

As a result of our success, we have been able to expand our capacity to serve multiple species, rescue and provide care for animals in need, and engage with the public through interactive community involvement initiatives. The financial growth generated by our accomplishments enables us to meet the increasing facility needs that come with this expansion.
