Review for Wildlife Works Inc, Youngwood, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the Chief Coordinator for the Westmoreland / Fayette County Animal Response Team. We have been called to assist taking animals to Wildlife Works, and we have never had a negative experience with them. They are a group of dedicated volunteers who work 24/7 no matter what the weather or holiday. But most of them are volunteers, not all paid staff, so the public must be aware this is not an emergency veterinary hospital. And there are many costs involved in caring for wildlife: food, utilities, cleaning supplies, vet care costs, and other supplies- so every donation counts. When you take a wounded wild animal to them a donation helps offset the costs they will incur. We need more wildlife rehabbers like Wildlife Works across the state, so if anyone feels they would like to start their own group, please see them as an example of excellence.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage others to create their own wildlife rehabilitation center. We have lost a few over the years as people retire, and need more to take up this great cause. We also need more rehabbers to take on the bigger animals such as deer, etc. as there are very few in the state of PA.
