We accept animals from across the entire State of Colorado, including overflow from other wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife rehab centers. Demand for services from EWRC continues to grow as human/wildlife situations increase. We provide direct hands-on care to the animals, and take great care to ensure the animals are set up for sucess on their release back to nature. Train volunteers assist with wildlife transport. Veterinarians donate time and services to treat animals. Annually we have successfully rehabilitate and releasedapproximately 96% of our animals back to the wild for a second chance at life. We are an all-volunteer organization.

Ellicott Wildlife Center does a tremendous job in taking care of hurt and/or abandon animals, birds. They take in all cirtters in need of care and through their resources of volunteers are truly able to make a difference. Most animals are treated and healed for release back into wildlife. EWC also has an excellent childrens education outreach program.
