Napa Wildlife Rescue

Napa Wildlife Rescue

What They Do:

The only organization in Napa County permitted by the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife to rescue, rehabilitate and release wildlife back into the wild. When they are orphaned we raise them; when they are sick or injured we heal them. When they are ready, we release them back into the wild.

No one knows how many wild creatures perished in the October fires, but the number was likely in the thousands, making each remaining creature critical to the re-population of Napa’s wild community.

Napa Wildlife Rescue is the only organization permitted by the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife to rescue, habilitate and release wildlife in Napa County. In 2017, NWR helped over a thousand birds and mammals. In addition, last year NWR reached over 7,000 through education and outreach.

NWR is the only second chance that Napa wildlife in need will ever get.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteers are the engine that drive our work. Every year, attrition for a variety of reasons makes it critical to replenish, reallocate and expand our volunteer pool.

Volunteers needed to:

  • Work with wildlife patients.
  • Handle our HAWKLINE advisory calls.
  • Maintain and construct facilities.
  • Transport patients.
  • Staff events.
  • Perform clerical tasks.

Our most important recent gift was land. Supporters can contribute by offering us access to their networks of appropriate partner organizations.

Business Partners:

Napa General Store has been a consistent and positive partner, advertising the Give!Guide and encouraging neighboring businesses to join them in doing so.

Our thanks to the Malk Nature Fund for providing matching funds for donations made to Napa Wildlife Rescue through the Give!Guide (see Matching Funds).




Wow! What wonderful work you do! So very, very thankful you folks are there to help these magnificent creatures.
