Winter Support For Hummingbirds

OUR WILDLIFE CENTER
Puget Sound WildCare (a DBA of South Sound Critter Care) specializing in human-wildlife interactions was opened a wildlife hospital in 2009 for mammal and reptile care in 2009 and received a federal permit for migratory bird species in 2010. The permits were expanded to provide regional care for about 2,800 animals of 130 species and the in 2014, we expanded to include an additional acre of land (the Annex) and built 30 outdoor enclosures. That made us the 2nd largest wildlife care center in WA State serving King and Pierce Counties which house about 40% of Washington’s population.
Our purposes are to: To enhance the preservation of animals (both wild and some small domestic) in King County and surrounding areas in Western Washington by providing education, rehabilitation, placement, and environmental advocacy in the community through people, one person at a time.
From 2010 to 2018 PSWC received 13,915 wild animals in need of care. We have been in court with WDFW since 11/6/2018. That case has been heard, and we are in the process to reopen in the late spring of 2022!
