Effective July 1, 2018, the Center will be open from 8:00 AM till 6:00 PM for receiving new patients. (Office hours will remain 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.)
This early opening schedule will allow us to more effectively deal with the care and feeding of the animals in our care. It will also be easier for our hard working rehabilitation personnel to begin their day by checking on the most critical patients and reviewing the priorities for the day.
Going forward we will be making other adjustments in procedures so that we can deliver an even better recovery rate for our patients. An example of this will be new guidelines on our website that will help with understanding what to do with injured animals until we can get there to lend a hand.
Your Wildlife Center is continuing to grow and adapt to create a new even more effective future for the wildlife in Southwest Florida.
