Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The public often finds compromised wild animals that need help. One needs to be licensed to care for wild animals. CWC has all the proper state and federal licensing to care for wild animals and release them back into the wild with trained personnel.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

RVS (Rabies Vector Species) Training

RVS training is provided to the animal rescue community, veterinary staff & law enforcement across PA and to other states. In PA any wildlife rehabilitators and volunteers that handle orphaned and injured RVS  animals for rehabilitation must attend this training in addition to getting their rabies vaccines to be “RVS certified” in PA. RVS animals in PA are raccoons, skunks, foxes, bats, ground hogs and coyotes.   The training includes information about rabies, what animals are rabies vectors and how to determine if a wild animal is orphaned and/or needs help.

Population(s) Served

Nursing care, veterinary care, feeding & cleaning of wild animal enclosures until the animals can be released.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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.

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.
