Every year we receive and care for more than 3,000 injured, orphaned and sick animals, from tiny Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and flying squirrels to foxes, deer and Bald Eagles. Feathered, furred or scaled, they will all have a second chance to live wild and free.
Our wildlife hospital and rehabilitation facility is located on 35 secluded acres of forest, fields and ponds in Quincy, Florida, just north of Tallahassee. We are permitted by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission to possess and rehabilitate wildlife.
Our Wild Classroom is permitted to display non-releasable native wildlife for public education.
The St. Francis Wildlife Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of native wildlife in north Florida through the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife, and through public education.
Rehabilitate sick, injured, and orphaned native wildlife for eventual return to their natural habitats
Instill an appreciation and a respect for all living creatures and the natural environments we share
Promote a life-long stewardship ethic that empowers citizens to preserve what remains of natural Florida through action-based programs
Increase students' basic competencies in science and other disciplines
Provide an educational resource to the community
We provide our services free of charge...
... but we are always grateful for donations to help cover food and medical costs. Larger gifts to help fund equipment and outdoor conditioning cages are most appreciated. There are many ways to support St. Francis Wildlife.
We welcome volunteers from the community who are at least 18 years of age to work on site and/or transport rescued wildlife to us from veterinary offices in Tallahassee.
