History of the Wildlife Center
The Wildlife Center of Florida was “born” on January 1, 2004. It was the long-time joint dream of founders, Kevin Barton and Linda Schrader. It was officially incorporated in March and became a non-profit agency in July. WCV has all state and Federal permits to care for and rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.
The wildlife hospital, the heart of the center, is located on 5 acres of land in Venice, FL belonging to Linda Schrader. Several wildlife hutches, pre-existing animal barns, squirrel habitat, a songbird aviary, and a raccoon habitat round out the main facility. A pond serves as a water fowl rehabilitation area. The center’s secluded location is ideal for wildlife recuperation.
