About Us

Turning Interest into Action

Born from a lifelong love and desire to help wildlife. 

Being a PNW native, I had the opportunity to volunteer and work for several years at a wildlife rehabilitation center on the Northern Oregon Coast. Assisting in the care and rehabilitation of over 100 species of wildlife, with release back into their natural habitat, always being the ultimate goal.  

It was there that I recognized the urgent need for a wildlife rehabilitation facility on the Peninsula.  After relocating to Ocean Park in 2020, we have worked towards fulfilling that need in our community.

The work and determination have paid off and in late 2021, Peninsula Wild Care was founded. We are a small all volunteer, non-profit, 501c3, rescue and rehabilitation center in Southwest Washington. We rescue small mammals from life threatening situations by providing them care and veterinary treatment as needed. 

We can help other species, such as birds, but only to stabilize and transfer to facilities with the permits and facilities for them. 

Our focus is to release healthy wildlife back into their natural habitat, we work closely with local, state, and federal agencies to meet that goal.
