What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

CWC plans to continue providing a professional licensed service to the community and expand to meet the growing need.

CWC has hired an additional full time individual to not only help with animal care, supervision of volunteers but also administrative tasks such as grant writing. We are increasing our volunteer recruitment and training to help accommodate the addition need.

CWC has a volunteer and intern program that recruits a staff of over 50 volunteers at any one time. CWC is able to accept and rehabilitate over 1500 wild animals per year from all over the middle of PA. CWC also works with local veterinarians to provide emergency veterinary care to compromised wild animals 24/7. CWC has specialized housing and facilities on site such as incubators to care for neonates, supplies to care for critically injured animals and outside enclosures for pre-release conditioning. Many of the facilities and outside animal enclosures were built by eagle scouts for their eagle scout project. In addition, there is a basic lab on site to perform fecals and basic blood work such as PCVs and blood lead. The staff and volunteers are highly trained to provide nursing care under the supervision of our cooperating veterinarians.

Centre Wildlife Care rehabilitation program has grown every year. Every year our animal admissions, donations and interested volunteers increase. CWC has successfully released thousands of healthy wild animals back into the wild over the years. CWC educational outreach has also become more popular with more educational programs with live animals being requested. CWC also does a regular TV segment on Central PA Live which provides natural history about the wildlife around us.

CWC has been and is successful in becoming a productive and popular wildlife rehabilitation organization with great community support. However, CWC would like to build a larger facility to meet the growing needs.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
