Pacific Wildlife Care is San Luis Obispo county's only licensed rehabilitation center caring for injured birds, mammals, and reptiles. As a result of the Apex Houston oil spill that brought a number of oiled pelicans to the beaches of San Luis Obispo County, Pacific Wildlife Care, a non-profit, volunteer organization, was founded in 1986. Since then, PWC has grown from a small group of dedicated home rehabilitators into a successful non-profit organization with a well-equipped rehabilitation center, a full-time wildlife veterinarian, a small paid staff, and over 200 volunteers. PWC is open 8:30am – 5pm daily.
