Southwest Wildlife ( is a non-profit organization that has rehabilitated thousands of sick, injured, orphaned, displaced, and abandoned wild animals. Over 70% have been successfully released back into the wild.
Animals that cannot be released back into the wild are offered a home for life in the SWCC accredited wildlife sanctuary, the largest sanctuary for animals native to the southwest in the United States. Southwest Wildlife is the only sanctuary in Arizona capable of caring for large mammals such as black bears, mountain lions, and Mexican gray wolves. As an accredited sanctuary, SWCC must operate under strict and rigorous guidelines with respect to animal management and care.

Southwest Wildlife ( actively works with many private, community, and government organizations in resolving wildlife situations, caring for endangered species, and in planning the release of rehabilitated animals. SWCC receives no federal or state funding for their operations, and subsists entirely on donations and grants to provide the medical care, housing, feeding, and daily care of the wildlife at its facility.
