Welcome to Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center

                         Our Mission:  Saving our wildlife, one life at a time!

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) rescues native wild animals that have lost their homes to development, or are found injured, orphaned, or abandoned.  When possible, the animals in our care are rehabilitated and released — healthy and wild — back where they belong.    

Those animals that could not survive in the wild can live out their lives at our accredited sanctuary.  We don’t buy, breed, sell or trade animals, nor are the animals for hire or used for commercial purposes.

We’re proud of our contribution to the recovery of an endangered species – the Mexican gray wolf.  As a holding facility, we offer space at our sanctuary to care for part of the captive population of this rare wolf, and participate as a member of the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan (SSP).

Southwest Wildlife shares its knowledge and passion about animals through education.  We hope not only to educate, but also to inspire people to learn about and respect our wildlife and conserve its habitat.

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which is run by a handful of staff and many dedicated volunteers.  We are funded solely through private donations, fundraising and grants.


It's all about monthly giving!  Learn more!
