ABOUT US

WildCare of Western New York was formed as a nonprofit by its three founding members, Veronica, Bev and Karen with the help of wonderful friends and family members. It began and is currently operating as a home-based rehabilitation facility in Pendleton, NY.  But we want to do even more to help wild animals. Our vision involves the bigger picture. Our long term goals will protect and create native habitat, improve our rehabilitation facilities, and show people the beauty of nature and all that is wild. Everything is connected. Once people understand that we are all a part of nature, we can work together to save the natural world.

WildCare of Western New York is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with the Tax ID 82-5501562.
