About Wildlife in Crisis: Wildlife in Crisis (WIC) is a wildlife care center dedicated to injured and orphaned wildlife. WIC was founded in 1988 and accepts over 5,000 debilitated wild animals each year. The WIC wildlife rehabilitation program exists in order to provide intensive care for these wild animals so that they can be returned to their natural environment. WIC also provides sanctuary for a variety of permanent resident wild animals with behavioral or physical disabilities. Wildlife in Crisis is a volunteer-run, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

Any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own and makes it so much the larger and better in every way.
