Napa Wildlife Rescue Annual Campaign
To save and protect the beautiful Napa Valley wildlife that adds so much to our quality of life. We work to restore wildlife to health so we can release them back into their native habitats in accordance with species-specific release criteria. We also work closely with other animal agencies, the county and state park system, and law enforcement agencies throughout the Bay Area.
There has been a disruption of nesting, breeding and feeding territories in Napa County that has led to an increase in the number and variety of species that NWR rehabilitates annually.
We are constantly looking for people interested in volunteering with Wildlife Rescue Center of Napa County to help with rehabilitation, transport, fundraising, grant writing and labor to build our facility.

WHO WE ARE
The Napa Wildlife Rescue (NWR) is a nonprofit organization of volunteers licensed through the California Department of Fish and Game.
Please help save and protect our precious wildlife by supporting our efforts and becoming a fellow “All My Friends are Wild”. Your donation is tax deductible as we are a 501 C3 organization.
WHAT WE DO
Dedicated volunteers of NWR rehabilitate a variety of birds and mammals that bless our Valley. Some of the most frequent rescues include hawks, songbirds, owls, woodpeckers, quail, crows, falcons, water fowl, bats, squirrels, jackrabbits, deer, fox, raccoons, and opossums. We have also rescued and treated coyote, pheasant and turkey vultures.
The rehabilitation process starts when an ill, orphaned, injured or distressed wild bird or mammal is brought to our intake center at the Silverado Veterinary Hospital or a call comes into our dispatcher on the “224-HAWK” line. Trained volunteers pick up the animal, assess the animal’s condition and transport to the appropriate rehabilitator.
