Review for WILDLIFE CENTER OF SILICON VALLEY, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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...

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.
