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.

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operated by a small full-time staff and a large group of dedicated volunteers. 

SWCC is funded solely through private donations, fundraising, and grants.


Keep up with what's happening!

You are cordially invited to our 2020 virtual baby shower! Every year, wildlife centers across the country are inundated with injured, orphaned, or abandoned baby wildlife. Southwest Wildlife is no different. To celebrate the lives of these little ones who pass through our care and help increase their chance of survival, check out our Amazon Wish list or donate monetarily toward our dedicated baby via the form on the linked page above.. With your help, we can rescue, rehabilitate, and release these babies back where they belong - in the wild.

After careful consideration and planning, the Southwest Wildlife team is happy to announce that we are reopening for tours on Friday, May 22! This document outlines the specific precautions our staff, our volunteers, and our guests must take to keep humans and animals safe.

The main point to note:

ALL humans over the age of 10 on the premises are required to wear masks at all times. Ages 9 and under masks are optional based on parents' discretion. Parents of children age 9 and under are required to wear masks. If you will not wear a mask, you cannot take a tour of our sanctuary. The safety of our staff, volunteers, animals, and guests is our top priority.

We are monitoring the situation daily, and all policies are subject to change. Follow us on social media and sign up for our mailing list to keep tabs on any potential changes! Please don't hesitate to reach out to with any questions, comments, or concerns. We look forward to giving you a tour!
