The mission of Wildlife Rescue Center of Napa County is “To support the presence of wildlife through rehabilitation and to promote public awareness and appreciation through community outreach.”

WRCNC was founded in 1991 as a nonprofit corporation and is permitted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.  It is the only organization of its kind in Napa County, and cares for hundreds of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife annually.  In 2013, WRCNC cared for 908 animals, including Songbirds, Raptors, and Mammals.  The organization is operated by a dedicated board of directors, over 100 volunteers, and two part-time wildlife administrators.  WRCNC’s future goal is to build a permanent facility in Napa County, something the organization is currently lacking.  Having a permanent center will be beneficial for the community and wildlife alike.  For more information about donating and volunteering, check out their website:  If the public finds a wild animal in distress, they should contact the organizations wildlife hotline (707) 224-4295.
