Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation, Inc. is a non-profit (501 C-3) refuge for wild animals. The organization was founded by Director Vernon E. Yates, in 1980. We welcome all wildlife great & small that is in need. Whether it’s injured, orphaned, abused, abandoned, neglected or confiscated. We are dedicated to our wildlife by providing love and attention in the healing process of both physical and emotional wounds. The wildlife in our care receive the best medical attention possible. As expensive at it can be, it is a small price to pay for these soon to be extinct animals.
Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation (WRR) has been recognized by both State and Federal Agencies for having the most outstanding animal care and transport facilities in Florida. We are also listed among the leading zoos in the world. We are proud to be a safe haven for our exotic creatures, for they would have faced a certain death without anywhere else to go. The endangered species at WRR’s shelter have been registered with the International Species Survival Programs. We are happy to participate in programs like this as they help preserve endangered species through studying the aspects of their care, reproduction, nutrition, and behavior.
Donations are needed more than ever before in maintaining the care of these animals. Shelters, especially in Florida are being forced to close because of the decline in the economy. They need your help! Imagine if these precious animals had no place to go our children and/or grandchildren would not have the opportunity to see and study these beautiful creatures. Please help, your donations do make a difference.
