Another Pelican Release Party!

Everyone is welcome to join us for a Pelican Release Party Saturday March 24th 2018 at 6:00 PM! We will meet at the North Jetty Beach Park where you can watch some of our rescued, rehabilitated birds be released back into paradise where they belong and stay to watch the 7:43 PM sunset! This event is at the North Jetty Park just before the North Jetty (not at the Jetty!) We will be arriving shortly before 6:00 PM unloading crates and parading the crates down to the beach. Because this event is all about the well being of the wildlife, we will need everyone to be prompt for the event, as we can not keep the birds waiting. We will be selling raffle tickets for $5.00 per ticket for a chance to open one of the wildlife crate doors to release the wildlife.  Our very own Wildlife Center of Venice Tervis Tumblers will be for sale. Any other donations are greatly appreciated, please check our wish list on our website. Please feel free to share with everyone! Your wildlife thanks you in advance.

Open house this Saturday, check out our new property!

Come join us at our new location and see the wonderful new space we will be occupying in 2018.  This is the perfect chance to get a tour of the new property we are working on purchasing.  See the great office space, amazing room for cages and pens and the clean, untouched areas for expansion.  Also, we will be giving tours of our old area across the street where the animals are currently residing.  Children are most certainly welcome.

While you are here, say hi to the goats.  Rumor has it that they like carrots…

The new location is just about 100 yards from our old home, on the Southwest corner of Border Road and N. Jackson Road.  You enter from Jackson Road.  Admission is free, but we are seriously hoping that you will make a (non-carrot) contribution to support our ongoing efforts to rescue wildlife and make the purchase that will finally provide us with a permanent home.  Thanks in advance for your continued support through this very important transitional period for The Wildlife Center of Venice!!


Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year to all of our donors, supporters and volunteers!!  2018 will be a big year for WCV while we continue to transition to our new permanent home. Check out our very own WCV Tervis Tumblers that will be for sale very soon in our new online store.  Stay hydrated while supporting the Wildlife Center of Venice and help the local economy by buying lifetime guaranteed Tervis Tumblers manufactured right here in Venice, Florida! 

At the Wildlife Center of Venice (501c3 Non-Profit), we are committed to the preservation, rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in our local community.  We service all of Sarasota and West Charlotte counties in the State of Florida. We work hard each day to uphold these values, but we need each and every one of you to help us in this noble cause.
