This organization is awesome! Before I started volunteering here I had a different view of nature and squirrels especially. Now that I have helped raise baby squirrels I have a greater understanding and appreciation for them. There is nothing like holding a baby animal in your hands and feeding it.

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

Animal care. Rehabing animals to go back into the wild is a great feeling.

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

Concentrate more on educating the public so the number of animals that need to be rehabbed is less.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

This organization does so much for the wildlife of the surrounding area. In caring for the animals of St. Louis and the surrounding areas, they are connecting us back to the nature that coexists with us every day. We often forget about our nature neighbors, but it is comforting to know that Wildlife Rescue Center does not forget them.
I found a baby bunny once that had been injured at Webster University campus and Wildlife Rescue Center was the only organization I could find who cared to help the poor animal. They did everything they could, but the animal was already in shock and passed away. Still, the volunteers and staff care so much about the animals, they actually gave me a call later to tell me what had happened to the bunny.

Give them more funds and people to work with so that they might be able to do even more for the animals than they already do.

My first encounter with the Wildlife Rescue Center was making a phone call to them asking about a rather friendly raccoon. They took the time to explain to me why the raccoon was acting in such a way. I hung up feeling more educated about an animal that humans encounter regularly and felt inspired to spread the word!

My second experience with them was when I took in a bag of dog food to see if they could use it. I was greeted by the person at the front desk with a warm smile of appreciation.

I had been thinking about volunteering somewhere and so WRC spoke to my heart.

My brief positive experiences with The Wildlife Rescue Center did not prepare me for the amazing experience I would have as a volunteer.

Every single person I have been in contact with thus far has been friendly, warm, caring, helpful, and committed! I cannot believe how hard these people work for the sake of our wildlife OR how many have dedicted a number of years to their committment.

The Animal Care Staff is unbelieveable!!!! They are incredibly serious and unbelievably good at what they do, but still find time to listen to you, help you, and laugh with you.

What the Education Department does in teaching children the importance of our wildlife is wonderful! They are very knowledgeable and dedicated to this effort. Constantly researching and looking to create the ultimate experience for the youngest members of our society.

The Administration Department, the Volunteer Coordinator...I cannot stress enough the words dedication, committment, caring, organization, knowledge, friendliness..the positive words could keep flowing!

EVERYONE has made me feel as if I am needed and important and making a difference no matter what! I have learned so much that I continue to share with others in my life.

There are so many animals, that because we share their world, end up injured, sick, or orphaned. Because there are a great many individuals among us that care very deeply about and realize how important wildlife is to our environment, I get a great number of phone calls with questions and concerns. I get many visitors bringing in wildlife! And I only volunteer one evening a week! I am so grateful for WRC!

my experience as a volunteer.

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

change the amount of donations to ten times the largest amount they have ever seen!

I have volunteered at the Wildlife Rescue Center of Missouri for years. I have seen them raise/rehab. and release many animals, including red foxes, turtles (large and small), waterfowl of all kinds, opposum, rabbits, squirrels of all kinds, skunks, raccoons, etc. This organization's staff is knowledgeable and helpful and amazing. The volunteers are excellent and the backbone of the organization.

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

seeing the animals released and watching orphaned baby animals grow. Releasing animals is a wonderful experience.

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

make the facilities larger.
