Your gift will save the life of a sick, injured, or orphaned wild animal

Injured, sick, and orphaned wildlife are generally left to fend for themselves. But you can help to change that. Wildwoods is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Duluth, MN, dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. We help wildlife from all over the Northland that are in need of emergency care, stabilize and transport animals to other facilities for more advanced care, and raise wildlife that have become orphaned (usually due to a harmful interaction with a human). Our mission is to promote the understanding, appreciation, and well-being of wildlife and the world we share through compassion, care, and community involvement. We also work to educate people on what they can do to avoid harmful interactions with wildlife that result in the animal coming to Wildwoods in the first place.  We work very hard to "Keep Wildlife Wild."

Northern saw-whet owl that was successfully treated and released!

This  year, we have admitted almost 1,000 animals representing 115 species from all over northern Minnesota. In addition to the animals, we have provided telephonic support and education to 1,300 people. Our telephone assistance is critical in making sure that animals are not unintentionally kidnapped (this is common with fawns and baby rabbits), but are left alone to be raised by their mothers!

Next year, we fully expect to surpass this year's admits, and the Northland wildlife needs you to be their voice, their hero, and their advocate, so that we can help all animals in need that will pass through our doors.

Right now is the best time to give because your gift DOUBLES, thanks to a 1-to-1 matching grant from Friends of Wildwoods for the first $8,000 raised.

To meet the $8,000 matching grant, our wild neighbors need:

  • 12 heroes to give $250
  • 30 defenders to give $100
  • 20 friends to give $50

But a donation of any size is critical for us, so please do what you can!

You are needed by thousands of sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals who have no one to fight for them. Be a hero today and please consider giving right now.

Our Values:

  • We believe that our nature and wildlife add immeasurably to our quality of life
  • We respect and value animals of all species
  • We provide high quality care to all wildlife brought to us
  • We establish cooperative relationships with other professionals working towards similar goals

Our Goals:

  • Provide humane care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife, with the ultimate goal of return to the wild
  • Provide wild animals a dignified life while in our care, and if necessary, a dignified ending to that life
  • Be a resource for people who find wild animals in need
  • Foster understanding and appreciation of our wild neighbors

Thank you for supporting Wildwoods so that we can in turn support the wildlife that we share space with.
