SWR is wonderful all volunteer organization with great wildlife rehabbers. They are dedicated, and selfless in caring for all the assorted species encountered in El Dorado County.
I volunteered and was on the board when I lived in the area. I am still a member and donor because of the great service they provide for the animals and the community.

I live in a rural area and every year I find dying baby birds, deer, rabbits near my place. I didn't know where to go for assistance. Now there is a facility just a few miles from my place. I have phone numbers and am taking classes with the Sierra Wildlife Rescue group. The classes have been very informative.

I've helped a neighbor who is a volunteer with SWR hand feeding baby raccoons and watching a wounded bird recover and fly again.
It is so very heartwarming to watch the damage that humans cause wildlife be turned around by human kindness.

This is an outstanding organization dedicated to preserving our wildlife. We have found baby birds and deer that were injured and this organization nursed them back to health! The volunteers are well-trained and caring.
