My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Wildlife, Inc., Cape Neddick, ME, USA
I became aware of CFW two or three years ago. My sister-in-law began volunteering there, and then continued as an intern. Her love for the animals she cares for is apparent to anyone who knows her, and she keeps family and friends informed about the work CFW does from her Facebook profile. As she learns about Maine's wild creatures, she in turn teaches us about them when she posts photos of the animals, birds & reptiles in her care. She comments about them & updates us on their progress as they are rehabilitated. She spreads the word about the work CFW does to everyone she meets. She is a wonderful ambassador for a wonderful organization that is very much needed. CFW works to educate the public with their educational programs. Like most of my neighbors living in a rural area, I've had many instances when I've encountered an animal needing help, but the game warden refused to have anything to do with it. Other animal welfare groups restrict their care to domestic animals. There was never anywhere to turn. Now that I know about CFW I feel confident that I can get help for an injured animal.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I've seen my sister-in-law care for animals & share information about them as part of her internship.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Like to see them open branches throughout the state of Maine, Get their program into all of Maine's elementary schools, and I'd like them to be able to do more effective fund-raising.
