additional resources

We couldn’t rescue so many animals without a wonderful network of people and companies who lend their hands when needed! Here are some additional resources!

Wildlife removal

WRC does not handle Wildlife Removal complaints. We recommend James at R&R Wildlife Control for humane solutions to nuisance wildlife.

Our partners

John Ball zoo

We are proud to partner with our friends at the John Ball Zoo for medical advice as well as non-releasable animal placement. When some of our animals are permanently injured, we are able to find a permanent home either at the zoo or through their network of zoos and nature centers!

Sleepy Hollow Pet Cemetery & Crematory

Sadly, not all of our animals make it to release. For those that pass away in our care, they are given the respect they deserve. Our animals are laid to rest via cremation and burial at Sleepy Hollow.
