Animal Adoption

” A place where wild things arrive for a helping hand and leave having given us the ability to understand.” -Dave Siddon

Denise Pictures 157Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center is home to many animals that are unable to be returned to the wild. Each of these animals act as ambassadors, teaching children and adults about the beauty of our native species, the importance of conservation and ways to be a responsible steward of our natural world. 


Hundreds of animals are brought to the center that require not only food and shelter, but often require specialized care including medicines, x-rays and surgery. You can support the efforts of Wildlife Images by adopting one of our animal ambassadors. Your contribution at any level will make a difference not only in the life of your chosen animal, but also in the lives of the animals served by the center throughout the year.
