It’s indescribably satisfying to be a part of an organization that makes a profound difference in the lives of people and our wild neighbors, every day.

Like most every staff member and volunteer, being a part of WRC was initially about working with and helping animals. Over the years that has evolved for me into a love of working with the people that support WRC. I have been fortunate to interact with animal rescuers, donors, volunteers, interns and staff who show true compassion every day.
