I'll admit, I haven't always been that fond of Tucson. I hated the heat and I couldn't see what everyone loved so much about this city. Then I came across the Tucson Wildlife Center. I began working here about a year ago and the more time I spent out here, the more I began to fall in love with Tucson and all it's beautiful wildlife. I started seeing more that each animal has a personality and thanks to the Tucson Wildlife Center, I finally found my following--animal care. Being around the animals is therapeutic and knowing that we're making a difference is so satisfying!

This organization is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone who loves animals!

I volunteer at TWC, and am very pleased with the care provided to the animals. The staff and volunteers are careful and caring with the animals, and the founder is active with releases and rescues. There are a few permanent resident animals that cannot be released due to an injury or due to being too friendly with people, and they act as surrogates for rescued babies or as educational animals. I am immensely pleased and impressed with how well the place is run.

As stewards of the land, it is imperative that we learn how to coexist with one of our most precious resources, our native wildlife. Urban development is presenting one of the greatest challenges our wildlife has to try an overcome. Decreased open areas, increased traffic & negative human interaction, whether accidental or deliberate is threatening their existence. I commend Tucson Wildlife Center (TWC) for the services they provide, free of charge. This dedicated staff is available 24/7, 365 days for emergency intervention, referral services, and education. Their mission is rescue, rehabilitation & release. The duties can be quite arduous. The hours endless, with over night rescues, feedings &/ or medications being delivered throughout the night, emergency surgeries and yet this staff is ready & willing to assist our wildlife. I am honored & proud to be associated with this outstanding group of individuals. I know TWC is making a real difference. Please help us help our wildlife, let others know about the Tucson Wildlife Center. Thank you.

Tucson Wildlife Center is a haven for those who are injured, orphaned or literally lost ( such is the case of the brown pelican.) I volunteered for 2 and a half years and treasured being a part of TWC, but I had to relocate recently. My favorite job was cleaning up the yards of the residents (those unalbe to be released.) I loved having the greathorns act as "yard foreman" as I raked beneath them, and hosed off the mesh to cool them down in the hot summer months. It was the same with the screetch owls, a special harris hawk and a redtail, peregrines and others. Being able to assist in the rehabilitation of a golden eagle as it regained it's flight strength was wonderful and fulfilling. What we do there benfits our precious wildlife in a direct and important manner. It is invaluable in it's ability to rehabilitate, protect and relocate animals and birds for their highest benefit. Much of the time what we do goes unnoticed. We do our best to inform and educate the public, but it just takes once for someone's heart to be touched by the life of a wild creature - seeking only to live free in natures balance. We are a part of that. Assisting in this endeavor, will enhance the lives of countless animals.

I volunteered at TWC for about a year until I was sidelined by an accident. I really enjoyed helping out around there mostly because the people there were pretty level headed unlike some people with some rescue groups. The center does a great job of helping wildlife and putting up with AZG&F's crap. I would love to see this facility grow so they could have a vet on site at all times and all the equipment necessary to handle the worst cases and in my time there I have seen some pretty bad stuff come into the surgery suite. I will definitely be volunteering there again in the future. A fantastic organization that I would recommend to anyone who is looking to volunteer and give back to nature.

Everyone here respects and gets along with each other! There is only support, no dissention. The director is a passionate and intelligent teacher, never shy to teach all she knows. I have learned so much. And experienced nature and animals in ways I could never have had the opportunity to know. Like how all species will travel their lifetime to get back home, if they become displaced. And how most species have strong family ties, even when the books say they don't.

The Great!

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

the survival of many wild animals that would have otherwise died.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to speed up improvements in the works. I am impatient and want to see Rome built overnight.

More feedback...

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

the purpose I feel when doing all the right things for all the right reasons.

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

courteous, friendly, passionate, kind, intelligent and very worthwhile people to be around.

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

alleviate the suffering of many wild animals, educate the whole southwest on why wild animals and their pristine habitats NEED to be saved! Develop medical and other techniques that can be shared with the world, and so much more.

Ways to make it better...

I could spend more time and have more resources to help this organization.

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

the need for extreme growth in a short amount of time, without the resources to do it. They are trying to fundraise to build the first wildlife hospital in southern Arizona. It can't come soon enough. The number of injured animals has doubled every year!

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

They have no lack of doctors, veterinarians and medical staff who want to help. Facilities and operations money is the challenge.
