What We Do

Wildlife Rehabilitation of Daytona Beach, Inc. is licensed by the state of Florida to take in orphaned and injured native Florida wildlife with the goal of returning each animal to the wild.  We rescue hundreds of animals each year.  We are currently a home-based rehab group and have been rehabbing since 1991. At any given time, we have at least 50-100  animals in care. We are a private, non-profit corporation currently awaiting 501(c)3 approval. Donations made in 2006 were tax-deductible and we expect they will be in 2007 as well. 
         We:
bullet Provide Medical care to injured wildlife Thanks to our wonderful vet, Dr. Freiberg at All Creatures Vet Clinic in South Daytona for seeing the wildlife and donating their valuable time. 
bullet Feed and raise orphans: The typical orphan requires feeding of a special formula, mixed to be as close as possible to their mother’s milk. They are fed between two and six times a day!! As they grow, they are weaned to solid food, a diet which matches that particular species’ nutritional requirements. 
bullet We build and maintain cages, which must constantly be done.  
bullet Return the animals to the wild When the animals are grown or recovered and show that they are capable of taking care of themselves, they are returned to the wild. 
bullet Give them a permanent home  In the cases where an animal cannot take care of themselves and is not stressed by being in captivity, we can sometimes provide them with a permanent home. On rare occasions, usually in cases of severe injury, the best we can give them is humane euthanasia. This is only done after careful consideration and as a last resort.
