Wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and release bring together amazing people in our community.
With over 600 members, 100 active volunteers, 40 trained rehabilitators, and a dozen local veterinarians, SWR takes in up to 1200 orphaned or injured animals each year.
Get in on the wild action:
Tell a friend, teach a child, spread the word
The powerful Word-of-Mouth. Come and say, “Hello” to our amazing Ambassadors. Organize a class activity about local wildlife. Keep your ears open for those who may be curious about the wild animals in El Dorado County and take a moment to tell them about SWR.
