I started as a volunteer with little experience working with wildlife but West Sound Wildlife provided me with the opportunity to learn and appreciate local wildlife; there is nothing compared to watching injured raptors heal and be released back into the wild. West Sound Wildlife provides their community with a wonderful resource for wildlife response and education; an amazing organization that promotes keeping wildlife wild!

Great organization that works on many levels: helps rehabilitate and restore injured wildlife to their habitats, educates through public programs and outreach to school aged kids--great place for people to volunteer and have close experience with helping in all aspects of the shelter's mission. The organization also works very hard to maintain the highest standards in all their efforts.

I started volunteering at the shelter when I felt a need to do something that would lift my spirits and leave my children and grand children with a better place to raise their children.
I was immediately captured by the need that existed in the wildlife rehabilitation arena and the personal satisfaction I received everytime I worked with a sick or injured animal to help it return to it habitate able to take care of itself or just to relieve its suffering.
I, also, learned that I enjoyed interacting with the publc and being able to share the education and information I was receiving with others.
I now serve on the Board of the Shlter and volunteer during the busy spring and summer season when the shelter is open longer hours and serves hundreds of babies and injured animals.
