Rehabilitate + Educate + Advocate
We are currently not open or accepting animals. We are a group of professionals trying to open up a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center to serve northern Colorado region, including Weld and Larimer county, as soon as possible. If you have found an animal click here.
The mission of Northern Colorado Wildlife Center, a 501(c)3 independent nonprofit, is to:
- Rehabilitate sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife, and when successful, release those animals back into their natural habitats.
-Educate the public about the natural histories of wildlife native to northern Colorado, ways to peacefully coexist with them, and provide humane solutions to human-wildlife conflicts.
-Promote and advocate the preservation and restoration of native ecosystems that provide wildlife places to live and thrive
What got us started
We are a group of local northern Colorado residents that have worked with wildlife for over 20 years. Several years ago the only facility in northern Colorado providing care to non-raptor wildlife discontinued their services. Since then, we have been trying to get another facility up and running. The former facility took in nearly 2,000 animals every year, and while Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Longmont has been willing to take animals from the region during this time, their obligation has legally been to Boulder county, and thus they have not been able to take in all the animals in need from northern Colorado. Therefore, around 6,000 animals went untreated these past few years. We believe many of these instances can be avoided through public education of humane methods aimed at peaceful coexistence with wildlife. However, some negative interactions are unavoidable, in those cases, a rehabilitation center is needed to care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. Our goal is to provide these education services to the northern Colorado community through lectures and social media, and open a facility to provide rehabilitation services to it's wildlife.
