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! They also do educational shows for kids. The children get to see at least one animal, be involved with activities and conversations and they get to learn about why it is so important to have these animals around. The educational shows is a wonderful program.
It has been my pleasure to keep in contact with the CFW and occasionally help out at big events. They are a wonderful group of energetic people that are making a difference in the world of wild animals.
