The Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network was established in 1988 to rescue and rehabilitate injured, orphaned, or oiled wild birds and small mammals. The non-profit organization operates under permits (pdf file) from the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Some 3,000 wild animals are treated by the Network each year and more than half are successfully rehabilitated and released. The Network operates a care center at 819 Garden Street in Santa Barbara. Small birds are cared for at this location while other animals are treated at the homes of several volunteers. Many of these animals are brought to the Network from veterinarian offices or city and county agencies, such as Animal Control and Harbor Patrol. Most come from the public via the Network's telephone Helpline (805-966-9005). Volunteers are dispatched to rescue or retrieve injured wildlife based on tips from the public.
Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network.
AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
