Wildlife Rehab Center
The Valerie H. Schindler Wildlife Rehabilitation Center provides free veterinary and rehabilitation services to orphaned and injured native North Carolina animals. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (WRC), while on Zoo grounds, is a gated medical facility and not open to Zoo Visitors. For assistance or more information, please call 336-879-7644.
The staff and volunteers managing this Center believe that compassion, civic responsibility and environmental stewardship are lessons best learned in the company of leaders who embody and practice these values.
The WRC provides role models, educational programs, volunteer experiences and social interactions that strengthen the human spirit by enriching its capacity to care about animals, about nature and about life itself.
