800+ strong and growing! Members, donors, volunteers & staff working together to support the wildlife of San Luis Obispo County through rehabilitation and educational outreach.
Pacific Wildlife Care is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
What We Do
We treat nearly 3,000 wild animal patients every year, from over 200 different species. Our goal? To return healthy animals to the wild! We also provide educational presentations for local organizations and schools.
[Wildlife rehabilitation] "is a process of coming to know something quite unlike you, to understand it well enough not only to keep it alive but also to put it back, like a puzzle piece, into the gap in the world it left behind."
-- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk

We found a young red-tailed hawk yesterday and today, she/he is at Pacific Wildlife Care! Thank you to El Camino Vet Clinic for keeping our foundling in an incubator overnight and for coordinating with Pacific Wildlife to have her brought to you. I hope she can also be cared for by Fiona. Thank you for your advice and your service. I don't know what we would have done without you! xoxo
