YGGDRASIL URBAN WILDLIFE RESCUE
June 24, 2010

I found YUWR via the Internet after finding an orphaned baby squirrel on a Sunday evening. I took the baby to Lila that night and was so impressed with her caring demeaner and vast knowledge. Soon after our first meeting, I took her class on fostering baby squirrels and became a volunteer that same day. I continue to be impressed by Lila. She LITERALLY is available all hours of the day or night and always makes me feel appreciated for what I do to help.

The Great!

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

being educated about urban wildlife, caring for small mammals and watching them grow into beautiful mature creatures who are released to live a full life that they wouldn't have had if YUWR didn't exist.

Ways to make it better...

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

Want them to have a larger facility with more supplies and donations

More feedback

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

Learning about and caring for baby squirrels. Also working with Lila.

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

extremely dedicated and caring

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

Locate to a bigger and better suited facility, perhaps expand further towards the tri-valley and pay Lila a salary

Ways to make it better...

there were more financial and supply support.

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

keeping enough food, supplies available. Also the size of the facility, we need more room..

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

This organization is needed. Lila has given so much to and through YUWR and we can't let it go away. Please help us save YUWR!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I fostered baby squirrels from formula feedings until they were able to forage and fend for themselves, then released them to live in the urban wilds.
