Rescue

We are located in Miami and rescue all native species of wildlife. Although we do not have the resources to pick up every injured or orphaned animal, we do give advice over the phone on how to best help the animal in question.

Release

We are dedicated to ensuring every animal we release into the wild is fit to survive. This includes preparing baby animals for survival and making sure all injured animals have fully healed before we release them back into the wild.

Get Involved

We love volunteers! Due to the fact that the animals we receive are wild, we handle them very minimally. However volunteers are always needed for sprucing up cages, preparing diets, feedings, fundraising, and construction.
