Mission Statement

Wildlife Care Association, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of local wildlife. WCA is committed to educating and instructing the community in the respect, appreciation, and care of local wildlife. WCA is pledged to the management and preservation of wildlife habitat.


Wildlife Care Association is a non-profit organization based out of McClellan, California (Sacramento area) that is permitted by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to care for wildlife. WCA is open year round, seven days a week including most holidays.

Concerned citizens and local agencies bring us thousands of sick, injured, or orphaned wild animals each year. WCA provides emergency and on going medical services to the animals in our care with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. The staff at Wildlife Care Association relies on volunteers to accomplish this. WCA provides training for all volunteer positions. Volunteers are encouraged to expand their knowledge by attending training opportunities and classes.

WCA also provides many educational opportunities to the local Sacramento community. WCA offers live animal presentations to youth groups and other organizations to educate our community about local wildlife.

WCA is always looking for new volunteers to join our ranks. Our greatest need for volunteers comes during the spring and summer months when many local animals are breeding. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our website at www.wildlifecareassociation.com and complete a volunteer application found under the "Help WCA" tab at the top of the page.

I've volunteered here for a number of years and they have these mass staff walk-outs every year or two, complaining about the board and the president micromanaging them. We just had another one last month where 9 staff members quit in the middle of busy season because we had way too many animals and the board weren't letting them limit intakes. I've heard because they don't want to lose any donations. We keep losing volunteers and interns too because of it, and other things like how the AC wasn't working for 2 full years. But from what I hear they HAVE money! And now I just heard that the president and treasurer were in there the other day going around telling people that anyone who is still in contact with the last staff can go ahead and leave. What are they trying to hide?

I think it's a great idea to bring the community together with painting for a good cause and finishing and feeling accomplished
