Tucson Wildlife Center was established in 1998 by Lisa Bates and Peter Lininger, and became a 501(c)3 in 2000. At that time, we were immediately available to take in wild animals that had no where else to go.
From that point on, animals began pouring through the front door of the center.
Services provided by Tucson Wildlife Center include an emergency helpline operating 24/7, capture and transportation of injured animals, a 24-hour emergency room, staff wildlife veterinarians on call 24/7, rehabilitation, release, and education. We specialize in the treatment and release of animals such as javelina, birds of prey, and coyotes. All services are provided free to the public.
