Southwest Wildlife rescues and rehabilitates wildlife that has been injured, displaced, and orphaned. Once rehabilitated, they are returned to the wild. Wildlife education includes advice on living with wildlife and the importance of native wildlife to healthy ecosystems. Educational and humane scientific research opportunities are offered in the field of conservation medicine. Sanctuary is provided to animals that cannot be released back to the wild.
To achieve this mission, Southwest Wildlife provides:
- volunteer dispatch teams that respond to wildlife emergencies
- an on-site medical care center
- full-time wildlife consultation services
- educational services
- an American Sanctuary Association accredited sanctuary for those animals that cannot be released
