TOURS & EVENTS
EXPERIENCE OUR SANCTUARY
Please be aware that Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is not open to the public without an appointment or an event reservation. All tours, visits, and donation drop-offs must be scheduled in advance.
At Southwest Wildlife, we put animals first. Due to a sensitive animal on the Small Animal side of the sanctuary, tours will be shortened by 15-20 minutes starting April 20, 2022 to give that animal the peace and quiet she needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns. Thank you for understanding.
Please note that we are located in far North Scottsdale. If you have access to a vehicle, we highly encourage you to drive yourself. If you must get a ride, note that rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft do not pick up in our zip code. If you need a ride home after your tour, you MUST book a taxi in advance from the only service in our zip code: Scottsdale Taxi (480) 994-4567.
Southwest Wildlife offers educational programs onsite at our sanctuary in northeast Scottsdale. Here are some of the programs we offer:
