Our Effort

Animal Care

Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. We rescue about 1,500 animals a year and strive to give each animal the quality care it deserves. Sick, injured and orphaned wildlife receive medical care and a place to recover before being returned to their natural habitat.Good Samaritan veterinarians, local to the area, provide free or discounted services. Dr. Dan Famini, our vet on record, brings years of experience working with a variety of wildlife species, both local and exotic. He donates all of his time and expertise to help patients.Our center is a registered non-profit (501c3) operated by six full-time and three part-time staff members. As demand for our services grows, so does our budget. To maintain the animals we harbor and heal, in 2014, we must raise $340,000. Click here to contribute.  


Our Education Outreach Program is dedicated to promoting understanding and appreciation of native wildlife. We offer presentations and tours to local schools and community organizations. We appear at fairs and local markets to educate the general public about our center and promote peaceful coexistence with wildlife.


Our Exclusion Service provides home and business owners with humane solutions for dealing with nuisance wildlife in walls, under buildings, in attics or eaves. Rather than trapping and euthanizing, our Exclusion Technician evicts the animals permanently from the area and seals the building to prevent future animals from encroaching on the property.


To meet the ever-growing demand to accommodate imperiled wildlife, we are continually expanding. At this time we are in the process of constructing an educational barnyard, featuring predator proofing techniques to help farmers and ranchers peacefully coexist with their wildlife neighbors. We need your help!
