A Sustainable Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

“Establishing a sustainable wildlife rehabilitation center means that every innocent wild animal gets the care and compassion they deserve and every person has the outlet to help if they so choose.”

Heather Bernatchez
Founding Director

“It became evident to me early in my work as an independent wildlife rehabilitator that a central location to care for animals was necessary. Serving as a headquarters for care resources and training of caregivers, the Center will raise and standardize the level of care for the animals that we work so hard to help.

It will also take away the fear-filled questions of those that find animals needing care. ‘What do I do?’, ‘Who do I call?’ WCFC is the answer.”
