Orphaned Wildlife Rescue Center - OWRC


Since its founding in 1990, the Orphaned Wildlife Rescue Center (OWRC) has rescued over 15,000 animals. Located on R.G. (Doc) Wexler’s three-acre home, the Center rescues all animals — from mice to deer to porpoises. OWRC operates under a strict “no kill” policy and will help any animal. The public and local veterinarians refer forty to sixty percent of the animals; the remainder of the animals come in from animal control and the local police. OWRC is the only facility in Maryland equipped to rescue wildlife in the Chesapeake Bay. The Center owns three boats — two speed boats and a larger research vessel — all donated by private citizens. Sea turtles, osprey, and pelicans are among the water wildlife seen by OWRC. The Center is also equipped to rescue small whales that might become stranded in the bay.
