Animal Care Alliance is permitted through the state and federal government to care orphaned wildlife.
It's common to encounter young wild animals, especially in spring and summer. Some people have an irresistible attraction to these wild youngsters, and want to take them home. Every year, the lives of young wild animals are needlessly jeopardized by well-intentioned people who take them from the wild in the mistaken belief that the animals are abandoned or orphaned and will die if not given care. In fact, rescuing wildlife from the wild often results in the death of the animal.
IF YOU ARE CERTAIN that the young animal has been abandoned or needs medical care, please contact us.

Animal Care Alliance does not receive any money to care for wildlife. We are nonprofit organization and your donations are tax deductible. Please consider donating to wildlife rehabilitation and education.
Animal Care Alliance has a special purpose education permit. It allows us to use non-releasable wildlife for education programs.
We have recently presented programs for Cope Environmental Center, Richmond Parks Department, and area schools.
ACA Wildlife Rehab and Education offers programs for all ages. Programs can be adjusted to fit your needs. We currently have a red tail hawk, screech owl, turkey vulture, and raccoon on our educational permit. We also have a bearded dragon and tortoise that were surrendered to us. Programs can address mammals, reptiles, and/or birds. We can share tips on what to do if a sick or injured animal is found. Programs can also dispel myths and answer questions about wildlife. Our goal is to promote healthy relationships between humans and our native wildlife. Our programs are offered free of charge, but donations are always welcome!
We would love to come share our wildlife ambassadors and the message of conservation with your group! Please contact us via email if you are interested in a program!
