My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Wildlife, Inc., Cape Neddick, ME, USA
I used to volunteer at the Center For Wildlife when I was 16 years old. I would do whatever it is that they needed done. Cleaning cages, laundry, changing water, making food platters or feeding the birds or squirrels.
I no longer volunteer there, but my mother, Anita, is part of the staff. She takes care of a lot of their paper work involving animal admissions and donations.
The Center for Wildlife is an amazing non-profit organization that deserves more recognition and funding. The amount of effort the hard working employees and volunteers put into keeping the organization going is mind boggling. The biggest thing that I think the general public doesn't understand is just how much more to it there is than just making sure the animals are taken care of. The to-do list goes on and on!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
There are a lot of things that could be improved upon at the Center for Wildlife, it's just a matter of finding the money to do so. Expanding the main building would be the biggest and most needed project. Right now it is a trailer and a half attached to each other, along with a couple other unattached buildings. I would love to see their office, treatment room and special care rooms all become a section of their own as opposed to all in the same sort of area, like they are now.
