Anna and her volunteers have helped us numerous time when there is no one else to turn to. I manage a 130 acre piece of land and come across many injured or displaced animals and birds, and without WCOSC, they would have surely perished. While not all of the rescues are successful, I know there are some experienced, kind and knowledgeable people to turn to to give these animals a chance. There're good people making a difference!

When I left the Marine Corps in 2012 after two combat deployments as an explosive ordnance disposal (bomb squad) technician, I came to volunteer for Wildlife Care of SoCal, where I learned that healing others is the best way to heal ourselves. The director, Anna, taught me how to handle wildlife, and how to behave around these scared and wounded animals that reminded me so much of myself. What she was really doing was also showing me that I had a place in the civilian world and that, just like these animals, I was worth saving. Thousands of animals a year are rehabilitated at Wildlife Care of SoCal, and if you are looking for a place to volunteer, you might just find yourself rehabilitated too.
