PAWS ANIMAL WILDLIFE SANCTUARY INC
October 12, 2014

This is one of two wildlife organizations I donate to. The care for the animals is excellent; the funds are used in an appropriate manner; and I love the way the organization does it's best to make sure the wildlife are rehabbed to go back into the wild. I would donate more to them if I had it! Excellent management, excellent facility. I am forever glad I found them.

PAWS ANIMAL WILDLIFE SANCTUARY INC
June 5, 2013

I can't say enough good about this organization. It was first brought to my attention by my daughter-in-law who volunteers for Carolina Wildlife Care. The work done by PAWS is outstanding. I know of nowhere else in the State where fawns, raptors, and other wildlife can be cared for so well. The goal of this organization is to return the animals back to the wild where they can live wild and free. They do great work. Many animals that would have died horrible deaths have been nursed back to health and released in protected areas. When it is impossible to save one, it is assisted in crossing the "rainbow bridge" with the smallest amount of trauma and pain possible. They manage their finances well. Paws keeps all of it's fans/donors well informed about the status of the animals and the organization at all times. I know when I donate funds to PAWS, it will be put to the best use possible. This is truly a GREAT nonprofit organization.

It is well-run. I, and they (I'm sure), would like to have more funding. Wish I could provide it.

September 26, 2012

I am a donor to this organization because I believe in the work it does. They are a wonderful resource in that part of the state. Their finances are always in order. They use every dollar they receive in the most efficient way possible. It is a compasionate, caring, organization that strives to help injured wildlife to survive and thrive once returned to the wild. They provide updates on the different animals and their progress, with picture as well as words. We have many organizations that help domestic pets (and they are needed) but few can do the extremely difficult and important wildlife rehabilitation done in this area. This is an example of wonderful work that could be expanded if enough funds were available.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

My daughter-in-law, who is a Vet-tech, told me about it and the work they did. She knows I am concerned about wildlife rehabilitation and suggested I look into this one. I investigated and was extremely impressed.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I know they always have needs and when I can afford to donate, I do. Since I don't have a lot of money, I try to put my donations where they are most needed.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Support it! If you care about wildlife in the upstate, help this organization help wildlife. Even a small amount can make a difference.

Carolina Wildlife Care, Inc.
April 10, 2012

I am both a client served and a donor for Carolina Wildlife Care (CWC) . CWC is an excellent organization which contributes to the well-being of our society as a whole. There are few organizations which take such good care of God's wild creatures. I am so grateful CWC is here to look out for them. CWC works miracles. They have cared for any number of furry and feathered creatures and a few scaly ones. They also work with other organizations to place animals that are unable to be returned to the wild. Local Vets volunteer to help, my daughter-in-law (a Vet Tech) and my grandchildren have worked as volunteers. There has never been a hint of scandal about this organization. I can't imagine how they are able to accomplish what they do on with the funds they have. Carolina Wildlife Care should receive any number of awards for their caring, compassion, and service.
