Review from Guidestar
March 1, 2012

I've been volunteering at the center for approximately five years and I have seen wonderful things being done to rehabiliate the wildlife. The recent Animal Care Coordinator (2012) is great. She has a gentle heart and she puts the wildlife first. She is very knowledgible about providing care for the animals and she has done a great job training the volunteers to do the same. The resources the center receives are spent appropriate. The educational program is growing and doing a great job about educating people to live with wildlife. There have been so many success stories, I have a difficult time picking one to write about. The falcon that was electricity, the bobcats that were hit by cars, the coyotes that were orphaned because their mothers were hit by cars or killed by people, the song birds that fell out of nests, the baby squirrels found on the ground. Please vist their web site to see the stories. Its a great feeling to see an animal admitted at the center and partake in its care and then see it released into the wild. The non profit organization is great. i would recommend this organized to anyone that enjoys watching wildlife. With all the growth in the Silicon Valley, these animals need our assistance to continue to adjust and live in the wild...

difficult to answer... I'm very happy

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

The people I have met at the center are wondeful. They are kind people and they enjoy being there and helping the animals...

Great....... I love caring for the animals and watching them improve and be released into the wild... I feel like I am contributing to life.

I've been volunteering there for over 10 years, and I've learned so much about urban wildlife, and the importance they play in our environment. I'm glad I've been able to educate people about opossums, -they are so misunderstood! They keep our environment clean by eating snails, slugs, and other garden pests, and rotting fruit and vegetation. They are scavengers, not predators. They don't carry rabies, either, and are non confrontational. Don't bother them, and they won't bother you!

If you live in Silicon Valley, you need to support this great service. I've been taking needy wildlife to them for over 15 years and couldn't do without them! Some of the volunteers are friends of mine, devoting their week-ends and sometimes nights as well as days to raising orphans from our local environments. It's also wonderful to know someone will help whatever injured wild animal you may come across.

A coyote was trapped with a snare close to my bedroom. I was awakened at 2:00 am and saw a coyote caught by the neck in a snare. Animal control contacted the trapper who euthanized the coyote. I was afraid the trapping would continue at close range to my home. Wildlife center of Silicon Valley helped me contact CA Dept of Fish and Game to report the illegal trapping practices and put me in contact with organizations who could rescue coyotes in the future. I was very grateful for their help both to me and to help prevent further snare trapping of coyotes in my town. This organization works very closely with local Animal Control and with State Fish and Game. They have an excellent educational web site that give the public advice on how to coexist with wildlife.
