Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care

For more than 40 years, the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care (LTWC) has been rehabilitating orphaned and hurt animals before they are released back into the wild.

From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, LTWC has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. It is an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization whose function is to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals. LTWC operates under permits issued by California Fish & Game and the United States Department of the Interior & Wildlife Service. No fee is charged for any bird or wild animal brought to the center, nor is any wild animal refused care.

To date, LTWC has received over 19,000 wild birds and animals and released, back to the wild, over 12,200, which makes for a release rate of more than 64%. The ‘best’ year for release rate was 2006, in which the organization had a 73.17% release rate.  To learn more, please click here. Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care T-shirts and hats, posters, LTWC license plate holders and magnets and Li’l Smokey lapel pins are always available for purchase.
