The Internal Revenue Service officially declared the WRCNU a 501(c)3 public charity retroactive to February 19, 2009. With the rigorous 501(c)3 regulatory review process behind us, we are working to attract philanthropists interested in protecting native wildlife and habitat—to be successful, we need your support. We understand today’s economic climate makes contributing a challenge, but please consider supporting WRCNU anyway you can; check out our Amazon Wish List for other ideas. If monetary donations aren’t practical, consider volunteering time or collecting Need List items located on this page. Computer users can provide us with free publicity or e-mail us about fundraising opportunities—every bit helps, so get creative! We are passionate about helping as many injured and orphaned wildlife as we safely can and you can rest assured your donations are stretched as far as possible. Even with lean resources, our all-volunteer staff has healed and released thousands of wild animals since our “hatch year” of 2009. With your assistance, we’ll continue this lifesaving work for many years into the future. To view our IRS determination letter go to http://wrcnu.org/pages/Official_Documents

MEMORIAL GIFTS: In lieu of flowers, consider honoring the memory of your special nature lover with a contribution to WRCNU in his or her name. If you choose, you may also offer this environmentally-friendly alternative to floral arrangements in your loved one's obituary.

Last summer we found an injured, but still alive, hummingbird (stray cat attack) in our yard. Not knowing what to do, we called around and did an internet search, and eventually found WRCNU's number; the person we spoke to said we could bring the bird to them and they may be able to help it to recover. We made the drive to Ogden and left the little guy with them, and we were given a case number if we wanted to call and check on the bird. We made a donation, and we were glad we were able to find someone who could help...

About a month later, our son almost stepped on another hummingbird just lying sick on the grass. We made another call, and rushed a second hummingbird to WRCNU; apparently this time the victim of some sort of pesticide poisoning. Both of these birds required very labor-intensive treatment over many weeks, but both made a full recovery and were released into the wild again. Thank you so very much to the staff for a job well done! We will be making donations every year to help a great cause.

My daughter found a bird that was not able to fly jumping around in our yard. Her compassionate heart wanted to help the bird but I had no idea what to do. I found WRCNU on the internet by chance and called them asking for help. The lady that answered the phone asked for some information about the bird which I provided. She explained to me that it sounded like the bird wasn't a newborn but was still a baby and had not learned to use his wings yet. She said to tell my daughter to go to a window and watch and soon the bird's mom and dad would come and bring him bugs to eat and help him until he could out of his situation. It wasn't 5 minutes after we came in and sure enough Mom and Dad showed up and guided their little one to where he needed to go to be safe. It was an amazing thing to watch!!!! I called WRCNU back to let them know that by taking the time to help me, they saved two families from definite misery - the bird family and our family! I have no idea what we would have done to help the bird but we would have tried something, thus not leaving him alone to be helped by his parents. It's important to note that we are in Ohio, not Utah, and were still helped by these fantastic people. I will definitely be making a contribution to this great organization!! Thank you WRCNU!!!

My three girls just donated for the Baby Golden Eagle (Phoenix) here in Ontario, Canada. They will spread the word to our friends in the US and prayers for Phoenix.

I agree with some of your other posters, an update or two would be great, the eagle itself is a national treasure and of great significance to both our nations especially in our respective aboriginal communities.

we were hoping for a happy ending to our great horned owl story, But knowing he was in such wonderful hands was enough. They gave him a longer life than he would of had. If love alone could of saved him, he would be flying circles by now. Thanks to all who gave their time & cared for him. Hes flying high now. rest in peace dear Bridger, you wouldnt believe how many lives you touched.

What a selfless, caring group of people we found at WRC. there was a baby Great Horned owl tethered to a bridge. It was tied to its nest by 1 leg from the time it hatched. We happened to catch them in on a Sat. They met us at the bridge in So. Weber. So. ogden Fire dept wouldnt help neither would Weber County. But SOUTH WEBER VOLUNTEER F,D, Came & within 30 mins had there ladder truck there to the rescue. These compassionate men & women got the little bird down, Then went back up to cut the rest of the baling twine out of the nest so this wouldnt happen again.WRC took him in to be taken such good care of. Thank you to the people that had enough heart to rescue him. Praying for his recovery. Many thanks to he 2 men & 2 women of South Weber F.D. without you this owl would have certainly died. Please donate to this wonderful wildlife center. they are AMAZING!!!! Thank you, Susan Folkman & Kim Pierce

One day my kids came in and said there was a baby owl in the driveway under my car. I went out ans sure enough there was a baby owl under my car. I managed to get him and then had no idea what to do I called the WRCNU and they said to bring him in and I got the kids and off we went,they took him in with no questions and I really believe this is a great place and needs the community's support. So everyone give what you can and if you can not give money look at the needs list and see what you got you could give. I am sure that whatever you have they will be grateful. Go out Saturday to the shower and take a look around and do not forget to bring what you can. Lets support this foundation

I am a REALTOR and one night I was getting ready to show a vacant home in West Ogden. While waiting for my clients I heard a "THUMP THUMP THUMP" coming from within the house. I ran in and found a Kestrel smacking repeatedly into the windows, trying to get out. I showed the house quickly and then called a friend who called the Center to tell them we were on our way. She came to the house and helped me catch this poor exhausted baby. We took him to the center where they immediately hydrated him and kept him for several weeks while he recovered from his awful ordeal. I can't say enough about how good and kind DaLyn and all of the staff are.

We brought in a western screech owl who was in our back yard and not appearing to do very well. My husband and I are so thankful to know that there is a place to take our beloved, but injured, wildlife. I was so relieved to leave the little guy into such capable and loving hands! Thank you! Especially thank you for being there 7 days a week!

I was riding my bike to work and found a Flicker that had been hit in the middle of the road. He was unconscious, but then opened one eye. He needed help, so we brought him to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. They said he had a broken leg and a battered wing, but will heal and be realeased in about a month. We are so lucky to have a facility like this to help wildlife!! I am so grateful. I agree, what a wonderful & worthwhile charity!!

This amazing group took in a baby sparrow that we found in our backyard. It was only a day old and covered in ants when we found it. They were able to rehabilitate it and release it to the wild. What a wonderful, worthwhile charity!

These people took in a seagull that we accidentally hit with our car and scooped up. Its leg was broken. We drove around to shelters, but we didn't know WHAT to do. Our veterinarian told us about this group, and they came to pick up the injured bird from the vet who kept is overnight. They tell us that they will splint the seagull's leg and give it physical therapy for two months until it can fly again. How WONDERFUL that we have somewhere to take injured birds! I'm sending in a BIG donation! God bless these people!
