MORRO BAY — Pacific Wildlife Care was honored this past month as the 17th Senate District Nonprofit of the Year by Senator Bill Monning. Pacific Wildlife Care is the only licensed rehabilitation center in San Luis Obispo County that cares for injured birds, mammals, and reptiles.  

“Pacific Wildlife Care has done a tremendous job in its rehabilitation, advocacy, and education efforts for wildlife in San Luis Obispo County,” said Senator Monning. “The nonprofit treats nearly 3,000 animals every year in addition to providing educational presentations at local schools and orga­nizations. Thank you to everyone at Pa­cific Wildlife Care for your dedication to the protection of California’s wildlife.”  

Founded in 1986 after an oil spill brought several oiled pelicans to beach­es in San Luis Obispo, Pacific Wildlife Care has since grown into an organiza­tion of more than 1,100 members, do­nors, volunteers, and staff. The Rehabil­itation Center operates a public hotline to report distressed wildlife and receive information 365 days a year.

 Pacific Wildlife Care was honored at the annual California Nonprofits Day celebration in Sacramento to recognize exceptional nonprofits statewide.
