Wildlife Drop-off and Visiting Hours

Public Visitation :

We are pleased to be able to give you a small glimpse into the functioning of your Wildlife Center. We hope you will see some old friends here, and perhaps make new ones as well. Our Educational Ambassadors await you.

Public Visiting Hours
Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday
from 11am until 3 pm
Free Admission

Note that this is our temporary and somewhat makeshift facility. We’ve concentrated on animal care, not cosmetics, and most resources go toward building the completely new Wildlife Center, just next door.
But be aware that this remains a functioning Wildlife Hospital. Our patients must remain private and out of public view, for their protection. So while we invite you to look around and enjoy yourselves, we ask your understanding and cooperation. We have quite enough to do, taking care of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals. We really don’t have time to deal with people who may endanger themselves, or endanger the animals under our care.

Wildlife patients:

We are unable to receive patients outside of business hours. Our gate is open for sick, injured, or orphaned wild patients 7 days a week from approximately 8:30 AM until 5:30 PM. We may occasionally close during other hours, for extraordinary circumstances.

Please keep patients warm, dark and quiet overnight. A cardboard box is excellent for most animals. Also, while you may offer (do NOT force) water, please do not feed the animal. Improper diets are more dangerous than lack of food. Bring the animal to us at your first opportunity during business hours. Click here to download complete instructions in PDF format.

In Martin County, the Sheriff's Animal Services division is available at all hours, and is extremely helpful to us in arranging transport of wildlife in need of help. If the wildlife emergency is in Martin County, you may call the Sheriff's office at 772-287-1656 and choose menu selection 1.
