As 2013 draws to a close, everyone at Peace River Wildlife Center would like to thank the Charlotte Harbor community for your support. Since we also take in wounded animals from DeSoto, Lee, and Sarasota counties, our gratitude extends to the residents of those areas as well.

We have taken in a record number of animals this year: 966 birds, 896 mammals and 148 reptiles. We have seen many changes in our existing facility over the last 12 months. We have new fences and signs in place — thanks to the Charlotte Community Foundation and Modern Woodsmen. Our buildings have been painted — thanks to the Walmart Distribution Center volunteers. The screech owl habitat has been refurbished by our head honcho handyman, Gunnar. Overall, PRWC has a more welcoming façade to greet our visitors. And we hope to see more improvements in the coming year.
