What we do
The mission of City Wildlife is to assist wildlife in the District of Columbia through rehabilitation, release to the wild, advocacy, and public education.
City Wildlife’s was formed in 2008 to establish the first-ever wild animal rescue and rehabilitation center within the District of Columbia, where orphaned, sick, and injured wild animals are treated and returned to the wild. Beyond that, we seek to promote the enjoyment of native wildlife and harmonious co-existence with wild animals, and to protect the District of Columbia’s wild places for animal habitats.
