The Fox Valley Wildlife Center in Elburn Illinois is wonderful. They have a very dedicated group of staff and volunteers that put in an enormous amount of time and effort to make sure that the wildlife that comes to the center are healed and released. They also donate a lot of their own money to keep things running. I have attended their annual dinner for the last 2 years and I try to attend every event they have. Please donate to this great group. Thank you.

Great wildlife center. They take in and save every animal they can. The volunteers truly care about each and every animal and provide the best care possible for them. Most nonprofit volunteers stop working when it is bedtime and these volunteers end up having to take litters of squirrels or other animals home to rehab and give feedings to throughout the night... one word for that: dedication. I am proud to have them in my community looking out for wildlife.

FVWC is a vital organization for the Fox Valley area. It provides a very needed safe haven for injured and abandoned wildlife. The staff is dedicated to the cause of nurturing wildlife animals, so that each can be returned to it's natural habitat.

The attention that wildlife receive in this very humble facility is remarkable. The volunteers and staff devote many hours to care and rehabilitation of those creatures. As a retired veterinarian I'm so impressed with their level of knowledge and devotion. More impressive, is the the fact they accomplish so much with limited resources providing an excellent education program for children and adults in addition to the animal care.

This is a wonderful and vital organization in our community, and they do so much good with such shockingly little resources. The girls who work here are outstanding with the animals. They never seem to run out of energy or heart. I have volunteered here, dropped off wild animals for rehabilitation, and adopted a pet bunny who was domesticated — and he is an absolute love! I wish there were more organizations like this one helping wild animals in need.

The Fox Valley Wildlife Center is a terrific community center that is more than needed in our area. The center offers a place to bring injured and orphaned wildlife. It is run with not only lots of love and passion for wildlife, but with a high educational rehabitation level for each and every species.

Fox Valley WIldlife Center in Elburn, Illinois is a wonderful organization that cares for injured or orphaned local wildlife, usually as the result of human carelessness, habitat destruction, and many other causes. The volunteers and paid staff work tirelessly to take care of many different animals with the goal of releasing them back into the wild, often with very limited resources. If you care about the environment and wildlife, this is a great organization to support that will make you feel good about improving the world right in your own backyard.

I am currently a veterinary student and absolutely love this place. Staff is great and the way they care for the animals is outstanding! People bring in animals that are injured or orphaned and this facility rehabilitates them with the intent to release them back into the wild! Great place to go in Kane County if you find a wild animal that has been harmed or is indeed orphaned! Knowing that most of the wild animals are brought into the facility because they have been harmed by humans really makes it worthwhile that they now have a second chance at life!
