The CFW is an irreplacable haven the rehabillitation and caring of animals on the S Seacoast. there is no other place anywhere near Portsmouth, hampton, York Kittery or Kennebunk where one can take injured aninals. They do a superb job and deserve all the funding they can get, as the animals need theis place desperatelt due to human encroachment and expansion.

The CFW is an amazing organization-how they "do it" given the stresses involved I do not know; I first brought them an animal in 2006 and was so impressed with their dedication and persistence to the mission and although I'm not Bill Gates by any stretch of one's imagination I have since then donated thousands of dollars and continue to support them anyway I can. It's not often I back up such work with donations given the potential for scams but this outfit is the exception in a big way. They are worth EVRY DIME.

They are creative in their fundraising approaches and I support all of them. I am a random, periodic donor for special needs they have that blind-side them as well as joining their 5-year donor program in 2006; I am now in my second 5-year committment.

Anything anyone can do for the CFW will be money well spent.
Thank you.

i love this organization.

CFW is an incredible resource for our community and i feel great about supporting their important work. staff is always top notch, informative, and incredibly helpful when you find yourself with a critter in need of care. from mighty raptors to the tiniest of newborn mice — they're always willing to help.

in a world where we continually encroach on wildlife habitat, it's so comforting to know that there's a local organization that cares so deeply and works with such integrity to help injured or misplaced wildlife.

I donate and will continue to donate to the Center for wildlife because of the exceptional work they do on rehabilitating birds and animals. To see all the successful rehabs and releases is quite extraordinary. The staff and the volunteers are all hero's in my eyes.

My first encounter with the Center for Wildlife was many years ago when a dear friends pet seagull was injured. Our friend (Polly) was paralyzed from the waist down and wheel chair bound. Polly lived alone directly on the ocean. She had befriended a seagull which she named Susie who came to her home every morning and tapped on the back door for breakfast. Sometimes she would come back later in the day knowing Polly would be happy to see her and give her a snack. One day Polly was visiting with us when her neighbor called and said that Susie was on the front lawn and hurt. Susie had a very large fish hook lodged in her wing. Somehow Susie knew that if she got to Polly she would help her. Polly and her neighbor brought Susie to the CFW where she was cared for until she was healed. Once healed Polly picked Susie up, brought her home and released her. Susie continued to come every morning until one day when there was no tap on the door. Polly got concerned and looked outside and saw Susie lying on the patio near the door.....Susie had died. Susie's death was devastating to Polly as she looked forward to their mornings together. Thanks to the great care given Susie by the CFW they spent many more mornings together than they would have. CFW didn't just save the life of an injured bird, they saved the life of one of Polly's best friends.

I work with a company that held a fundraiser for The Center and I was incredibly impressed with the people who came out to help, both with the execution and organization. The Center's staff took a huge roll in planning and orchestrating the event which turned out to be a huge success for both The Center and my business. Their enthusiasm, dedication and hard work was unparralleled in any organizaion I have worked with so far. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity and one I look forward to having again in the future.
