Fox Valley Wildlife Center

Fox Valley Wildlife Center is a wildlife hospital serving the needs of orphaned, injured, and sick wildlife from Kane county and surrounding areas. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that relies solely on private donations.

Our ambassadors are on the move!

We are raising money to purchase a vehicle to transport our education ambassadors and allows us to spread our message of conservation and improve the relationship between the public and their wild neighbors.  If you are interested in helping with this please check out our fundraiser at YouCaring
