This is a wonderful cause. Donna and Phil work relentlessly and thier efferts many times go unnoticed. One of the best ways to get the information out is through education. It was amazing to see what a little article can do to bring awareness and spark interest about Ellicott Wildlife Rehab Center. Donna and Phil, I want you to know that you are appriciated and you are doing a great service to ensure the on going survival of our local wildlife. Keep up the good work!

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

all the lives it's saved.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ruin it. I do not have the knowledge or the passion that it takes to run it. Thank god for people like Donna and Phil.

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

seeing the interest and excitement in peoples eyes when they first hear about this organization. I also enjoy hearing the stories of the day to day work with the animals, not to mention the success stories.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

100% dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand, expand, expand.

Ways to make it better...

I could have given/gotten them more.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I can't say enough about the importance of this organization to our community!

Ellicott Wildlife Center does a tremendous job in taking care of hurt and/or abandon animals, birds. They take in all cirtters in need of care and through their resources of volunteers are truly able to make a difference. Most animals are treated and healed for release back into wildlife. EWC also has an excellent childrens education outreach program.

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

action of releasing a healed red tail fox.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be at a total loss.

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

Is watching it grown and seeing the dedication of the leadership.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a new habitat/rehab center with a enclosed education and vetinary screening site.

Ways to make it better...

I tried to have more 'hands on' time with them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Limitited financial resources for the numbers of rescures they take on.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I truy believe that they are deeply committed beyond the average care givers.
