Big DoG Countdown: Gold Country Wildlife Rescue

SHARE with Friend

Dozens of local organizations will be participating on May 6th in Placer County's Big Day of Giving. Each day we will be featuring one of the many participating organizations. Follow our daily series highlighting these great local organizations.

Gold Country Wildlife Rescue

Mission Statement
To protect, preserve and rehabilitate Placer County's diverse wildlife while promoting human awareness toward wildlife and the ecosystems we share.  Our ultimate goal is to successfully release orphaned and injured wildlife back into their natural habitats.

Background Statement
We were first established in 1991. As a nonprofit volunteer organization, we receive no public money and rely on the generosity of our donors to support our valuable community services. Three years ago, to meet the increased demand of identifying and rehabilitating our wildlife, GCWR found it necessary to provide an additional means of support by opening a seasonal Intake Center. In doing so, we have been better able to organize our efforts to provide care and housing for our injured or orphaned wildlife. The proverbial double edged sword, it has given us the opportunity for enhancing public awareness and accessibility, but it has also drastically increased our consumable and operational costs.
