Sierra Wildlife Rescue provides an invaluable service to the citizens and wildlife of El Dorado County. They work diligently every spring to make sure that hundreds of abandoned and injured baby birds survive, and they work the rest of the year contributing volunteer hours, veterinary expertise, and compassionate concern to the variety of wildlife that are injured, most often, as a result of human carelessness, commercial encroachment, and outright violence against Mother Nature’s most precious creatures.

Our first experience with SWR was when, on a Saturday morning, an SWR volunteer drove over 20 miles to our home to pick up an injured bird that our own careless kitty had injured. We were mortified by the injury, and thrilled that a community organization cared enough to rescue the sparrow and nurse it back to health. Amazing. Continued kudos to Sierra Wildlife Rescue, and we hope it thrives for years to come.

Collaborate with area schools to recruit more students to assist with rescue work for academic credit.

Having volunteered with a number of non-profits, I became a member of Sierra Wildlife Rescue several years ago after learning more about their work in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
I have been impressed by the dedication of their volunteers who often work around the clock caring for injured and orphaned wild animals. Their goal is to rehabilitate them and return them to the wild.
In addition, the management of the organization is exemplary! With Board members serving annual terms, this allows for representation across the membership. Moreover, the board values its volunteers as they work...together...toward a common goal.
I highly recommend supporting Sierra Wildlife Rescue by becoming a member or donating at!

I would recommend targeted fundraising and volunteer recruitment efforts via social networking and other i-technologies. And, Green Choice is a great way to move in that direction!
