Review for Wildlife in Crisis, Inc., Weston, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former summer intern I had the chance to really see just how much hard work goes into making this organization a success. It's great to see so many injured and orphaned animals have a second chance at life. Dara has put her heart into this place and without her, the staff and all the supporters, WIC wouldn't be what it is today. Personally my internship was an experience I'll never forget and it has given me the experience I need to pursue my career goals. I only wish I were able to continue volunteering at such a great place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own personal experience as an intern. I had a first hand look at every detail of the place and have seen what goes on 24 hours a day to care for WIC's residents

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

not do a very good job. I really don't know how Dara manages to do everything she does. She really is an amazing person to have been able to start this whole oragnization when she was just over 20 and still be able to raise a family.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing all the work being worth it when an animal is released back into the wild. It's amazing what a little warmth and food can do for an animal that almost didn't make it. It's great to see them be able to go back to where they came from.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all amazing people that have a real passion for what they do.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build their dream facility. They have plans for a new and improved facility but do not have the funds. With the money more animals could be cared for and be given permenant homes if needed.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to work so many hours. During baby season it could get very stressful working up to 15 hours a day but I never regretted a single minute I was there and I would choose to re-live the experience in an instant if I could

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not having enough space and money. Each year more non releasable animals make WIC their permenant home and more releasable animals come in every year. It is a very small space and we always put a great deal of effort into conserving resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

thank you to WIC for providing me with such a great experience! And please spread the word about this organization, it can never have too much support.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
