Napa Wildlife Rescue Annual Campaign


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.


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.


To save and protect the beautiful Napa Valley wildlife that add 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, fund raising, grant writing and labor to build our facility.


  • Costs of medications used in rehabilitation
  • Helping to promote public awareness and appreciation through media and community outreach
  • Costs of equipment such as aviary cages, incubators
  • Costs for setting up a new songbird clinic
  • Costs for establishing our own Napa County facility
  • Recruiting and training new rehabbers

Complimentary Blue Bird Box for donations of $250 and up

New research by UC Berkeley postdoctoral scholar Julie Jedlicka suggests thatIMG_0550 setting up bluebird nest boxes – surrogate cavities – in vineyards can help control insect pests. And it is believed they may be a benefit to home gardeners as well.

Our blue bird boxes are constructed of quality materials, and made to exacting specifications, that provide shelter for the nesting birds and protection from predators. Receive a ready to mount box (a $25 value), as a thank you for each donation of $250 or more to our annual campaign, which is currently underway.

Each qualifying donor will be contacted to opt in to receive their Blue Bird Box Thank You Gift!
