Cape Wildlife Center

As you may know, we closed the Cape Wildlife Center on February 28, 2017. As you can imagine, the decision was not an easy one. The CWC had been a great program in the area, and we are proud that we have served the Cape community and its wild animals for many years. We are extremely grateful to the talented staff and volunteers and all the members of the community who supported the center over the years and provided care to wild animals on the Cape.

The Humane Society of the United States has leased the property to the Pegasus Foundation. Through the leadership of the Pegasus Foundation and a new management team, the Cape Wildlife Center will continue operations helping the wildlife of Cape Cod.

The Humane Society of the United States and our affiliates continue to have very robust wildlife protection and wildlife rehabilitation programs around the country, including the South Florida Wildlife Center which is the highest volume wildlife triage hospital in the country, and our Fund for Animals Wildlife Center in San Diego, which specializes in large native carnivores. The Cape's wildlife education programs are being shifted to our South Florida Wildlife Center. We have major programs on wildlife advocacy and wildlife response and rescue, both in the U.S. and around the world. If you'd like to learn more about our wildlife work, please visit
