Currently under construction....TWC is building the ONLY FULL SERVICE WILDLIFE RESCUE HOSPITAL in Southern Arizona. Not only will they be taking care of more injured animals, they are also planning to become a training center for future veterinarians and wildlife rehabilitators who are interested in specializing in desert species. THE energy at TWC is palpable. Supported mostly through donations and powered by many dedicated volunteers, TWC is unique in the services they provide. Many, many desert birds of prey and mammal would have succumbed to injury and dehydration were it not for these dedicated people.
