Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to: the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife; the promotion, understanding, appreciation, protection and conservation of wildlife through both our Educational Outreach Programs and our advocacy efforts. Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue also makes charitable contributions to animal rescue and rehabilitation organizations as authorized by the Board.
Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue has a team of trained staff and volunteers available to rescue wildlife seven days a week. Using gloves, nets and other safety gear, we are able to safely catch wildlife ranging from hawks and owls to raccoons and coyotes.
We provide specialized medical care to over 1,500 animals a year. With the help of our Good Samaritan team of veterinarians, we are able to perform surgeries, nutritional care, detailed exams and much more to give these animals the best chance of survival.
On average, Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue releases 70% of the patients who come to us for help. The majority return to where they were found. In certain cases, animals are released to special release sites provided by generous members of our community who love animals and want to share their property with them.
