Greenwood serves a unique niche in the community. Unlike animal shelters, Greenwood takes in injured, orphaned, or abandoned wild animals and strives to rehabilitate them so they can be returned to the wild. Because of wildlife regulations, they cannot open their facilities for tours, so community members are not able to visit to see the animals and appreciate the work done there every day. As a volunteer, I see the work firsthand and understand the dedication and commitment of the staff and volunteers. I have close contact with the staff and board and find the leadership to be strong and everyone to have a high level of integrity. I strongly support the organization and hope others will, too.

I learned of this amazing organization several years ago when my dog injured a bird in the yard. I called and they invited me to bring it to them, which I did and they were great. They immediately told me what they thought it was but indicated the need for testing. They promised to call me when they knew what was wrong and they did. Although this specific bird could not be saved, having them be there to treat is was so much peace of mind. I don't know what I'd have done otherwise. They are able to save so many birds and other critters that their service is invaluable. I was so impressed with them that I have donated the healty pet food that need several times. This is truly a deserving charity.
