We are Mother Lode Wildlife Care, an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife in Tuolumne and nearby counties, with special focus on birds and squirrels. Our goals are to provide quality rescue, treatment, rehabilitation and release assistance to orphaned, injured and/or diseased wildlife while offering education and public awareness of our native wildlife to the community.
We have permits from California Fish and Wildlife and U.S. Fish and Wildlife to do this work. Our volunteers have the facilities and approved training to ensure that the wildlife we care for receives the best possible care and has the greatest chance of being released back into the wild.
Found an orphaned or injured wild bird or animal? Have a wild animal question?
We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, dependent on donations from our supporters to pay for food, care and supplies.
Our volunteers are our greatest asset, providing their help in many ways in support of the wildlife we care for.
