The CWC is an amazing organization. They work tirelessly to save injured and orphaned indigenous species of all kinds. From birds to cougars to sea lions they provide veterinary care and rehabilitation for sick and injured animals.

When I was looking for someplace to do a litte volunteer work over four years ago, CWC had the next available training class, so I chose them. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is the best free wildlife education you will ever get...real hands on experience with everything from the smallest baby Hummingbird to Great Horned Owls, Hawks and Pelicans and everything in between. Oh, and all of the native mammals from tiny shrews to our beautiful and shy native Mule Deer. If you love our native wildlife, and want to give back something to their wild world, please go to the cawildlife.org website and sign up for the next training class.

this wildlife center is one of the only ones that you can take sick and injured wildlife to in our area. They are very important to have, as if you take sick/injured animals to animal control, they euthanize them. They do an amzing service to the wildlife of the san fernando valley and areas nearby, and so much to alleviate the suffering of and rehabilitate these animals.
