Mission Statement

The Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley is dedicated to providing sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife with exceptional free care, rehabilitation, and the opportunity for release. We also aim to educate the public about coexisting peacefully with local wildlife.


Approximately 230 volunteers spend over 15,000 hours a year helping with the enormous task of caring for our patients. Most of our volunteers help with animal care. We have administrative, outreach/events, and even gardening volunteer opportunities. Whichever type of commitment you choose, your contribution of time makes a BIG difference and helps give wildlife a second chance. The Wildlife Center is a great place for people who are passionate about wildlife conservation. Seeing the animals heal and become ready for release is a powerful and extremely satisfying experience.

I have been a regular, more than 3 times per week, hiker and runner on the trails in the South Bay area. I have come across wildlife, for which I have much respect, every time I have stepped on those trails. Occasionally, I have come across an animal that has been hurt and in need of help. I appreciate knowing there is an organization dedicated in helping the wildlife in times of need and I would volunteer for Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley and recommend that any other caring person with available time to do so and support them in their valuable endeavors. -Ramin Zoufonoun
