Saving our wildlife, one life at a time!

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) rescues and rehabilitates wildlife that has been injured, displaced, and orphaned.

Once rehabilitated, they are returned to the wild. Sanctuary is provided to animals that cannot be released back to the wild. 

Educational and humane scientific research opportunities are offered in the field of conservation medicine, including advice on living with wildlife and the importance of native wildlife to healthy ecosystems.

Truly, the stars had to align for Mexican gray wolves Melly and Moonlight to conceive and give birth. Read the story of two miracle pups' journey into the wild - adding numbers and genetic diversity to a critically endangered species.

Eight baby coyotes were found dehydrated, starving, and cold in a cardboard box within a dumpster. Who knows how they got there - speculating only makes us angry. Instead, let's focus on what we do know. The kindness, compassion, and care displayed by the person who found them and the person who rescued them.
