Review for Piedmont Wildlife Rehab, Inc., Greensboro, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Me and my daughter, Emily, helped Melissa with some volunteer work last summer by coming on occasion to help her clean cages and feed baby birds. It is amazing to learn about all the different needs of the wildlife and see how they all get cared for differently in the wild. As a teacher, I wish this is something that could be shared more with our youth. My daughter learned so much. It was hard to see how much Melissa has to do on her own. This organization could really benefit from some constant funding and reliable volunteers. Melissa even donated some pigeons to my daughter and set us up with some donations to help get them a cage built. The experience for my daughter has been amazing. Since then, she has hatched two batches of baby pigeons. I would love to see something positive happen to make her life easier and some of the other ladies who commit so much of themselves to the cause. There are several I do not know personally such as Sue who work very hard as well. I would also like to see these ladies receive more respect and support from our local veterinarians. An outreach program or regular commitment from some of them would be priceless. Also, if they could open their minds to the fact that many of these volunteers could actually teach them a few things about wildlife. Melissa and so many others are a real treasure to have in our community!! The only reason I gave them four stars instead of five is because they don't have everything they need. With proper funds and equipment, they could do so much more. They do an amazing job with what they have to work with.

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

seeing animals I have brought to them rehabilitated and released.

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

like to see them have more funding and vet support.

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

learning about the animals and watching my daughter learn about the importance of wildlife and their role in life.

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

knowledgeable, kind and very giving people.

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

educate a multitude of people and help maintain a positive balance between society and wildlife.

Ways to make it better...

I could have helped more on a regular basis.

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

having enough volunteers, money and community support including that of our local vets.

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

the public needs to be more aware of who they are and what they do.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
