South Florida Wildlife Center

South Florida Wildlife Center (SFWC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides rehabilitation and veterinary services to sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife. The South Florida Wildlife Center is the only hospital for wild birds in South Florida. They admit approximately 8,000 birds each year.

Common injuries include:

  • Window strikes
  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Barbed wire
  • Fishing line and hooks
  • Entanglement in netting or kite string
  • Vehicle collision

In addition to birds, we also treat native wildlife including: alligators, snakes, turtles, rabbits, squirrels, opossums, raccoons, and skunks.

The South Florida Wildlife Center is open to the public 365 days a year from 8am to 5pm. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.

If you find an injured or orphaned animal, please call them at (954) 524-4302 for assistance.
