South Sound Critter Care
South Sound Critter Care is the only wildlife center located in King County and is dedicated to the care, rehabilitation and release of orphaned and injured wildlife.
SSCC treats an ever increasing number of animals with more than 1600 animals projected for this year.
SSCC rehabilitates over 250 wildlife species. SSCC also treats some exotic pets and domestic animals that have been released or ecaped such as turtles. As space allows SSCC rescues cats and kittens.
SSCC is a 501(c)(3), tax-deductible, non-profit registered in Washington state and in 2009, SSCC was initially permitted for mammals, reptile, and migratory bird rehabilitation.
All wildlife work is done without charge, but we rely heavily on volunteers, donations and grant funding to operate.
