Release Program

WildCare tries to release animals back to their home territories, but certain situations call for them to be relocated. This is where the release site program comes into play.

Every year, WildCare releases hawks, owls, fox squirrels, opossums, skunks, raccoons, foxes, bobcats, ducks, geese and a variety of songbirds — all on properties that are a part of the wildlife release site program.

Each wildlife species has its own unique habitat requirements that must be met in order for it to survive after release. Many animals simply need a place to get started, with suitable cover and resources where they can readjust to the life in the wild before dispersing. Others need an area to call home, where they can establish a territory and become a functioning member of the local community. In either case, your property may help fulfill this need.

Through the generosity of caring individuals we can ensure that all released animals will have the best possible chance for survival.
