Started in 1984, The Wildlife Care Clinic (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization staffed by undergraduate students of Iowa State University and our overseeing veterinarian, Bianca Zaffarano. Our primary mission is to provide medical attention, rehabilitation, and facilities for injured or orphaned wildlife. We aim to educate the public on the importance of Iowa's and the Midwest's, native wildlife and environment. As a secondary mission, we aim to place non-releasable wildlife with other licensed wildlife professionals for education and housing purposes.
Unfortunately, the WCC faces an uncertain future as the costs are quickly adding up. Medications, food stuffs, diagnostics, and surgery are expensive. Currently, these items are costing the clinic approximately $55,000 per year. All donations directly benefit our wildlife patients. Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated.
