“This will be my 9th year volunteering at SPWC and to me it is all about giving back and trying to make a difference. Wildlife is affected daily by human activity and we need to do all we can to help.
I have learned a lot from my years at SPWC, to value every living creature as an individual, that there are a lot of people who truly do care and that I can make a difference no matter how small. I get a lot of satisfaction just from cleaning a patient’s cage so that it makes them a little more comfortable. It takes a lot of people to run the centre and I volunteer to help in any way I can (there is always something you can do). Volunteering gives me a sense of satisfaction, a sense of really participating in change and of really making a difference in the lives of these animals.
I have also had the opportunity to return an Osprey to a nest, visit the Vineland Owl Foundation, drive a bear cub to a sanctuary and rescue a Young Peregrine Falcon. I love being a volunteer at SPWC .”
