The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center—operated by The Fund for Animals in partnership with The Humane Society of the United States—is an oasis in Ramona, Calif., where orphaned and other injured wildlife are treated with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. In addition, The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center cares for nearly 40 full-time residents rescued from the exotic pet trade and other acts of cruelty.
Whether it's rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing orphaned bobcats or celebrating the birthday of Hannah, the second oldest pygmy hippo in the United States, there are lots of exciting things happening at our center!
A colony of cats used to make their home on San Nicolas Island in the Channel Islands, but because they were non-native to the island, all of the cats were slated by government officials for euthanasia. Now they're safe with us and are available for adoption!
"My experience working with the staff and animals at The Fund was incredibly rewarding, and I would suggest to anyone interested in learning about true wildlife conservation to spend some time with these phenomenal creatures and their caretakers."
