Pacific Wildlife Care
Who We Are
Pacific Wildlife Care is San Luis Obispo county's only licensed rehabilitation center that cares for injured birds, mammals, and reptiles. PWC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is comprised of over 1,100 caring individuals (members, donors, volunteers, and staff) who embrace and support the Mission, Vision, Commitment, and Values of the organization.
Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) is 77-0196350.
Pacific Wildlife Care (PWC) was founded in 1986 in reaction to the Apex Houston oil spill that brought a number of oiled pelicans to the beaches of San Luis Obispo County. Since that time we have grown from a small group of dedicated home rehabilitators into a successful non-profit organization with a well-equipped rehabilitation center, a full-time wildlife veterinarian, a small paid staff, and over 200 volunteers. In addition to the Rehabilitation Center, which is open every day of the year, we maintain a Hotline that the public can call to report distressed wildlife (injured, sick, orphaned) and to receive information about our local wildlife.
