At Project Wildlife, we strive to provide the best medical care we can to our patients. If you are a veterinarian practicing in San Diego County, you can help us! With over 10,000 patients a year, we often need emergency assistance at a vet clinic closest to where the animal is found.
The services we need could be as simple as accepting the patient from the public and stabilizing the animal until one of our transporters can arrange to pick it up from you. If you would like to become more involved with working with wildlife and would be interested in treating long-term patients for free or at cost, please contact us for more information. We are always looking for assistance with treating rabies-vector species including grey fox, raccoons, and bats.
To find basic information about wild animal behaviors, practical ways to handle common encounters and instructions on what to do when an animal needs help, please visit our Local Wildlife Page.
