North County Wildlife Triage Center Update 2014

Hours for our North County Wildlife Triage Center are changing weekly. If we are not open, you can still drop off sick, injured or orphaned wild animals at Animal Control or Mission Animal & Bird Hospital in Oceanside. We will pick them as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you! 


Project Wildlife Hotline Update

Green_Phone.jpgWe are proud to offer our Wildlife Hotline 619-225-WILD to the public as a resource when a wild animal in need has been found. This informational line is managed entirely by our dedicated volunteers, and sometimes coverage isn't guaranteed. We are experiencing this now during our busiest time of year, baby season. Our volunteers are working hard in the Triage Center taking care of all the baby and injured wildlife brought in recently.

If you have found a wild animal, you can check out what to do HERE before trying the informational line. If you can't reach someone through the informational line, you can still bring the animal to us. We are able to accept sick, injured and orphaned wild animals at our Triage Center seven days a week at 887 1/2 Sherman Street in San Diego.

We thank you for your ongoing support, patience, and commitment to helping local wildlife!
