TWC's COVID 19 Response:

We are closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation.

At this unprecedented time of pandemic, our center is committed to the safety of our volunteers, staff, patients and supporting the health and safety of our community. Please take all recommended measures to reduce spread of this virus. This is a time for kindness, generosity, and helping each other.

We are admitting wildlife patients by appointment via our admission shed for "contact free admission" in order to support public safety and care for wildlife. We will not have the public enter our facility when bringing patients. Education programs are being conducted online. On a case by case basis, small in person programs and tours are being scheduled, with appropriate safety measures in place.

Note: We have had a decrease in income from programs, following the cancellation or postponement of events. We are entering at a time of year when there is a lot of need for rehabilitation. Please donate as generously as you are able.

Admissions: We are admitting wildlife patients but restricting access of the public. The public will not enter our facility after arranging for admission of a wildlife patient but will instead leave patients in a container in our patient admission shed, along with their contact information and information about where the patient was found.

Education programs: For more information about the programs we're currently offering, visit the Education Programs section of the website. Questions regarding programs should be directed to Heather Wayne by phoning our center at 814-763-2574 or via email to In addition to programs, we educate via our regular Facebook and Instagram posts, and counselling the public receives from our wildlife helpline volunteers.

Volunteers and staffing: We are following many precautions to keep everyone safe including having a minimal number of people onsite, staggering our schedules, wearing protective face masks, and having staff work remotely aside from patient care.
