Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation 501(c)(3)
Our Mission is to give a second chance to wildlife native to the state of Virginia. We accomplish this through rescue, rehabilitation and release of healthy wildlife and through education and outreach in the community.
Second Chance Wildlife has an active education program that includes outreach in the public school system as well as with community groups. We offer regular workshops that provide training to volunteers and educate the public on the importance of our work in providing balance in the ecosystem.
Our primary goal whenever possible is to release back into the wild all animals under our care. We work with community groups and individuals to ensure wildlife is released in a habitat that offers the best chance for their survival. Time of release, location and natural food and water sources are given careful consideration.
Our facility provides medical care, shelter, food and rehabilitation to prepare wildlife in our care for return to their natural habitat. We are proud to work with Dr. Tony Poutous from Midway Veterinary Hospital in Chesapeake, VA who provides us with specialized care and treatment.
We work in conjunction with other local rehabilitators, community organizations such as the Virginia Beach SPCA and Animal Control and other local agencies to rescue wildlife. We also take in injured and orphaned wildlife from the public.
