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 help. Thanks so much for your support!
