MISSOURI WILDLIFE RESCUE CENTER
August 24, 2011

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!

The Great!

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

my experience as a volunteer.

Ways to make it better...

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!
