We accept animals from across the entire State of Colorado, including overflow from other wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife rehab centers. Demand for services from EWRC continues to grow as human/wildlife situations increase. We provide direct hands-on care to the animals, and take great care to ensure the animals are set up for sucess on their release back to nature. Train volunteers assist with wildlife transport. Veterinarians donate time and services to treat animals. Annually we have successfully rehabilitate and releasedapproximately 96% of our animals back to the wild for a second chance at life. We are an all-volunteer organization. Wildlife and environmental educational and outreach programs continue to grow and we promote responsible stewardship of our environment and the creatures we share it with, via educational programs in our community. We encourage care and respect of all animals.


We continue to grow and in addition to our Ellicott facility, we now have facilities in Security, Black Forest, Colorado Springs, Larkspur, Castle Rock, and are in the process of obtaining a Pueblo-area facility.

The EWRC is wonderful! No animal or bird is turned away. I found a bird with one leg and half his beak missing. Donna took him, told me that his beak will grow back and he will be just fine. She was right! Everytime I go out there they are making cages bigger and better for the birds they have. Nothing is greater than watching a recovered bird fly away. Donna is incredible!

Absolutely the greatest! I found a injured bird in my background, I didn't have any idea where to take him or how to help him. I found Donna's center and she gave me all the information to help this bird. After the vet visit, it went to the Ellicott center. Donna was so great she called me to tell me how the bird was doing. When I went out to the center, I saw a happy bird, his beak had grown back and his leg was fine. Because of my experience with Donna I started to volunteer for the DOW.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

releasing the wildlife who are healthy and ready to be free!

These people are not only compassionate but knowledgeable in the help and rehabilitation of Colorado's unfortunate animals that come to them for whatever reason. The are truely dedicated and hopefully they will be able to continue the wonderful that they do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Two years ago I brought them two bluebird fledglins that had been orphaned and they willing took them in and cared for them, asking for nothing in return. They are angels.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
