SAN DIEGO HUMANE SOCIETY OPENS NEW WILDLIFE CENTER FOR INJURED AND ABANDONED ANIMALS



The new Pilar & Chuck Bahde Wildlife Center is specially designed for injured and abandoned wild animals that come to Project Wildlife, a program of the San Diego Humane Society. The state-of-the-art Wildlife Center includes habitats that will help to reduce stress as patients heal and grow before they are released back to the wild. The facility’s medical and surgical suites will expand San Diego Humane Society’s capabilities and provide a permanent, dedicated home for veterinary care for wildlife.

Project Wildlife stands alone as the primary resource in San Diego County for the majority of wildlife to receive help when they critically need it. Every year, Project Wildlife provides more than 12,000 wild animals — from raptors to squirrels and ducks — the best opportunity to receive the nurturing care they need to survive, whether it’s specialized veterinary care, injury rehabilitation or simply a safe place to mature.

The Pilar & Chuck Bahde Wildlife Center is located at 5433 Gaines St. For more information about what to do if you find a baby or injured wild animal, visit sdhumane.org or call the Project Wildlife hotline at 619-225-WILD.
