Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center’s (COLORADO) mission is to rehabilitate orphaned, injured and sick wildlife for release into appropriate habitats. Greenwood also strives to educate the public, emphasizing humane solutions to human/wildlife interactions.
Greenwood cares for approximately 2,400 animals annually at an average cost of $310 per patient. More than 70% of these are orphans. During our busy summer season, we have up to 400 animals on site. In our 33 years of existence, we have successfully released tens of thousands of wildlife, from hummingbird to coyote size, back into their natural habitats. We are the only rehabilitation center serving songbirds, waterfowl and mammals on the Colorado Northern Front Range. In addition, we offer educational presentations to more than 3,000 children and adults annually about living humanely with wildlife.
How the Money Will Be Used
In 2016, the Tony’s Crew Award was for $4,000.
In 2015, the Tony’s Crew Award of $5,000 will be used for the basic need of all life – food – is the mainstay of our mission to rehabilitate sick, injured or orphaned wildlife. Last year we cared for more than 2,500 animals representing 138 species. In addition to basic food needs, there are specialized diets often required to feed infants and the injured wildlife.
In 2014, the TSF Grant Accelerator Award of $5,000 was used to fund public education and outreach.
