Mission

Purpose: The TWRC Wildlife Center provides an emergency room for injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife, as well as a help-line;  both the emergency room and the help-line operate 7 days a week. A veterinarian is on staff to assist with training and emergencies and experienced volunteers and staff facilitate initial triage, rehabilitation, release, and education.

Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteers 14 or older are needed to assist with the daily operations of the Center. Duties include: answering the hotline, caring for the education animals, helping with admissions (for 18 and older), office chores, data entry, and general Center maintenance. Additionally, volunteers are needed to help in the Animal Care Program which runs every year from about March to October to help care for the thousands of baby animals admitted yearly. Please see the website for age requirements and additional details.

Education Center: TWRC Wildlife Center offers exciting, educational presentations with introductions to our amazing Animal Ambassadors.  We can also “customize” our presentation to expand upon specific curriculum. We have given presentations at schools for children of all ages, libraries, garden clubs, senior living communities, women’s clubs, Homeschool groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout meetings and camps, many types of spring and summer camp programs, veterinary schools and veterinary student group meetings.
