Woodlands is amazing. The care and love they put into each wild patient is beyond compare. I worked as a volunteer, an intern, and an apprentice for two years at Woodlands. The staff members are compassionate, not just to the animals but to the volunteers as well. They are meticulous when it comes to training and are always interested in what is best for the wild patients in their care. Not only are the people there wonderful to work with, they are also great mentors. Woodlands is a place worthy of your contributions.

This place is amazing. I did my full time internship at this non profit organization this summer and it was the most rewarding experience I have ever had. I have learned a lot from watching the staff as well as other volunteers. The staff trurly cares about the animals as well as volunteers. And on top of that the volunteers show so much passion toward the animals. Without place like this a lot of wildlife animals would end up dying and would not be given a chance to survive.

Woodlands Wildlife Refuge is an excellent non-profit organization. Their selfless staff demonstrate a true passion for the work they do and work around the clock to provide care for their fuzzy, scaly, and wild guests. I have been a donor and volunteer for a few years and will keep continue to support Woodlands and their efforts. Keep up the great work guys (and gals!)
