I run Paws Animal Wildlife Sanctuary in Upstate South Carolina and work with Carolina Wildlife Care on a regular basis. I've been 'behind the scenes' in the facility and have had animals transferred to me from their care. (We each have areas of expertise and will send animals to each other as necessary to make sure each animal gets the best possible care.)
I have nothing but the highest regard for CWC. Their care is exemplary, the staff and volunteers are professional, kind and caring. They will go the extra mile (sometimes literally) for each animal. I am amazed by how well they are able to care for each individual animal when they have so many in their care. They have a protocol for every situation so their people know just what to do and how to get the information they need when they need it. They have the right people in each position.
I am proud to work with them and never hesitate to refer the public to them in situations where this would get the animal in for care faster than trying to get them to our facility.

Count on Carolina Wildlife Care for advice and assistance when you need help with injured/orphaned creatures. Always there for the asking, and glad to provide followup reports. Fond memories of visiting a baby squirrel I brought to 'em and hearing of its release. These people are truly special.

A colony of barn swallows were nesting beneath a community dock in the Charleston area. When I found out that the dock was about to be rebuilt, I called those in charge, asking that the work be delayed until the chicks had safely fledged. When they were unresponsive, I got in touch with Joanna at Carolina Wildlife Care. She made several telephone calls and convinced the community association to delay the work--saving the lives of all the chicks. Today, the rebuilt dock has a thriving community of barn swallows, thanks to the great work of Carolina Wildlife Care.

Carolina Wildlife Care often goes above and beyond with the care of nature's creatures. Workers and Volunteers take baby animals home so that the animal can get the care it needs through out the day and night. CWC volunteers are an incredible part of giving nature a second chance at life. Workers take time from their jobs to greet as well as educate the general public when they bring in with an orphaned or injured animal.

This group has helped me with everything wild from baby squirrels to a very sick box turtle. Each time these little creatures have been well cared for, nursed back to health and released back into their original territory. They are not only wonderful, that are are also extremely knowledgeable. I appreciate them so much!!

My sister found a tiny little possum a few weeks ago.We took care of it as best we could for a couple of day's,then we were told about Carolina Wildlife,we went there to check out the people and to see what it was like We were so impressed just watching the ladies that were working that day and how they worked with the animals that we decided that was the place to leave our "Hope".So the next day we took her to them. What a great place to have!! All of God's little creatures deserve a chance,thank you Carolina-Wildlife for all the work you do.

Carolina Wildlife Care provides a priceless service! Their care to help rehabilitate injured animals and educate the public goes far beyond most people's expectations. The positive impact they have on wildlife is invaluable!

Over the years, I have taken several injured birds, an orphaned baby opossum and at least one turtle to Carolina Wildlife Care. The volunteers have always been friendly and helpful. Also, I have only missed one "baby shower" throughout the years. I love that they allow everyone to see and experience what they do for the wildlife. They are a wonderful organization and we are thankful for everything they do.

I am both a client served and a donor for Carolina Wildlife Care (CWC) . CWC is an excellent organization which contributes to the well-being of our society as a whole. There are few organizations which take such good care of God's wild creatures. I am so grateful CWC is here to look out for them. CWC works miracles. They have cared for any number of furry and feathered creatures and a few scaly ones. They also work with other organizations to place animals that are unable to be returned to the wild. Local Vets volunteer to help, my daughter-in-law (a Vet Tech) and my grandchildren have worked as volunteers. There has never been a hint of scandal about this organization. I can't imagine how they are able to accomplish what they do on with the funds they have. Carolina Wildlife Care should receive any number of awards for their caring, compassion, and service.
