WCC Does Not Accept After Hours Drop-offs
The care center does not accept animals left at our facility outside of normal operational hours. The after-hours cages previously available at the care center entrance have been permanently closed.
We believe it is imperative that we have the opportunity to talk directly with the person delivering an animal before it is accepted into our system. This direct contact allows us to gather all the information available about the animal and thus determine the best course of treatment. It also allows us to redirect animals not treated at our facility to an appropriate facility, and to reunite parents with offspring that may have been inadvertently taken from them. While our after-hours cages offered a convenient drop-off option for people finding injured and orphaned wildlife, they were fraught with problems.
We appreciate your understanding.
