Life is Getting Wilder at Your Rancho Coastal Humane Society

A guest at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society was headed to the front door when he glanced over to some cages and asked, “Are you guys planning to catch lobsters?”

We told him that they weren’t lobster traps. They were duck cages that just arrived for Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s new San Diego Wildlife Center.

“Does this mean I can adopt a duck here?”

Nope. We’re talking about wildlife. Wildlife should stay wild.

Anywhere you live in San Diego County, California you are surrounded by wildlife. RCHS President Jim Silveira says, “Wildlife doesn’t just live in our community. We live in theirs’. That’s why it’s up to us to help and protect these animals.”

  • The San Diego Wildlife Center at RCHS will be a resource in the north coastal region of San Diego County.
  • SDWC will care for injured, sick, and orphaned local wildlife.
  • The primary focus will be on songbirds, shorebirds, and squirrels.
  • SDWC will work with our partners to ensure that all wildlife has a place to heal and a chance to return to the wild.

So, no, you can’t adopt a duck. But you can make a donation, become a volunteer, or just help us spread the word about this new, lifesaving program.

Thank you for supporting the San Diego Wildlife Center at Rancho Coastal Humane Society…where Every Animal Deserves a Tomorrow. ®
