I'd give it no stars if I could. This place led us to believe they could help treat a small sick little one we found, told us to rush ASAP to their location, where they actually euthanized it. This place is in the business of euthanizing small critters, not REHABBING them. They should not be a 501(c)3 as they are taking charitable contributions to limit animal population.

An amazing story, an amazing group of people who are dedicated to help wildlife; any type of wildlife-be it squirrels or foxes or raccoons; you name it and they are willing to rehabilitate and release. Just observe the joys in their faces when they release back to wild. Greenwood has come a long way back from working out of a closet many years ago, often coming close to shutting down due to lack of funds.
If you love wildlife, you will love Greenwood.

Very responsive and immediately helpful upon calling after we found an sick and Injured baby raccoon near our high school. They advised us on how to proceed safely to protect both the animal and ourselves. I would imagine that when the general public finds a hurt or injured animal - most want to help! It’s nice that we have a local resource with this place that not only advises what to do in these situations, but also demonstrates an authentic and loving duty to care for and rehabilitate these animals. I didn’t know of this place until today. Thank you, and highly recommended!

I volunteer at Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and I cannot say enough good things about them. You won't find any other non-profit that is more caring, passionate, and dedicated to saving abandoned and injured wildlife. The staff is incredible in every single way. They spend countless hours completely devoted to patient care. All animals absolutely receive the best monitoring and treatment possible.

Overall, I love Greenwood with all my heart, and I implore anyone to make a donation (either with time or monetarily), in order to make a real difference in Colorado. Please help care for all our neighbors (feathered and furry). :)

Greenwood serves a unique niche in the community. Unlike animal shelters, Greenwood takes in injured, orphaned, or abandoned wild animals and strives to rehabilitate them so they can be returned to the wild. Because of wildlife regulations, they cannot open their facilities for tours, so community members are not able to visit to see the animals and appreciate the work done there every day. As a volunteer, I see the work firsthand and understand the dedication and commitment of the staff and volunteers. I have close contact with the staff and board and find the leadership to be strong and everyone to have a high level of integrity. I strongly support the organization and hope others will, too.

I learned of this amazing organization several years ago when my dog injured a bird in the yard. I called and they invited me to bring it to them, which I did and they were great. They immediately told me what they thought it was but indicated the need for testing. They promised to call me when they knew what was wrong and they did. Although this specific bird could not be saved, having them be there to treat is was so much peace of mind. I don't know what I'd have done otherwise. They are able to save so many birds and other critters that their service is invaluable. I was so impressed with them that I have donated the healty pet food that need several times. This is truly a deserving charity.
