Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, Inc. (LTWC) works to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals from our South Lake Tahoe, CA facility. The birds and animals we care for come from the surrounding region including across Northern California and Nevada.

From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, LTWC has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.
