Due to the current events and the spread of COVID 19 in our wonderful state, Back To The Wild will be OPEN to accepting injured and orphaned wildlife but CLOSED for tours and programs indefinitely. We will be closely following CDC and WHO recommendations to keep our staff and, of course, ALL OF YOU healthy and safe. If you have an animal in need, please call 419-684-9539 for instructions on how to safely transport the animal and utilize our no-contact drop off system. We know this is not the most ideal circumstances but we appreciate your continued support and your wonderful generosity!
Can you help us help wildlife?
We want all of our supporters to be safe and healthy! Because of this, we understand why there need to be lock downs. However, finding funding in these unique times is very difficult. If you think you are in a place where you feel comfortable with donating, please check out how you can help us continue to help wildlife!
Consider donating! What do your donations pay for?
-Care costs (supplies, staff costs, enclosure maintenance, etc...)
-Utilities (need to keep those lights on!)
-And SO MUCH MORE!
Whether it is $1.00 or $1000.00, your donation truly makes a difference. Without YOU, there is no us for THEM!!!
Back to the Wild is a licensed wildlife rehabilitation and education center in Northwest Ohio. Every year, we rescue an average of 2,500 animals affected by human carelessness and development. While our goal is always to release these amazing animals back into their native habitats, those who are too disabled to get to be free again become ambassadors and help us to teach about wildlife and conservation.
Each year, 30,000 to 50,000 people get to meet our ambassadors and educators to learn about how we can better care for our planet and native wildlife. Community outreach is so important!

Without YOU, there is no us for THEM!
You can help us make a difference. Our wildlife patients and ambassadors require visits with our veterinarians, specialized diets, and constant care. All of this is only possible with YOUR help! How can you contribute? It's easy! You can donate by using our PayPal or through the good ol' fashioned snail-mail, purchase an item off of our Amazon Wishlist, or donate any household items listed on our Needs Document. Check out our GET INVOLVED page for even more options on how you can make a difference. Thanks so much for your support!
