Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Protection of Endangered Species, Wildlife Preservation & Protection, Wildlife Sanctuaries

Mission: McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and permanent home to over two hundrend native or exotic animals. Some have been donated to us by wildlife officers, who confiscated these innocent creatures from previous owners because of neglect, abuse, or illegal possesion. Others were pets that owners could no longer care for and thought that McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary would provide the animals with a safe haven. Twenty four of the animals are large cats who consume one thousand pounds of meat each week.

Target demographics: native and exotic animals of all types.

Direct beneficiaries per year: hundreds of native animals in our rehabilitation program, in addition to the two hundred plus permanent residents of the sanctuary and over 8,000 students who attended an educational program.

Geographic areas served: South Florida

Programs: Native Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release, Wildlife Educational Programs serving all of Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and guided tours of the sanctuary. Tours are open to the public by reservation only and can be booked by calling 561-790-2116.

My wife and I were extremely impressed, Manny the guide was fabulous! His knowledge was incredible as well as his interaction with every animal The enclosures were very clean, secure and sizeable. It was evident that the animals were comfortable and well taken care of. I am a big cat lover and the variety of the cats was awesome, including the rarest and most endangered of species! I'm a huge fan and will certainly be back soon!

I have been a volunteer here off and on for the last three years and I can conclusively say that it has been one of the best things I've ever done. The amount of care and respect everyone who works here has for these animals is stunning. The educational tours are impeccable, thorough, and fascinating. All in all, an amazing place to work and visit!

I was fortunate to volunteer at McCarthy's Wildlfe for a few years. To this day, that experience is still one of my fondest. I have always been a huge animal lover and the love and respect and genuine care that Mark and Aneth have for their animals shines every time you visit the sanctuary. I absolutely love McCarthy's wildlife! Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area!
Additionally, Mark did two years of birthday parties for my daughters and each year was better than the last. The parties focused on education, conservation and rehabilitation which is exactly what McCarthy's focuses on. The parties were absolutely the best we have ever had, still!
