We are a grassroots, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization running exclusively on donations. We do not receive government subsidies and we depend on donations from kind members of our community in order to continue our work. Our annual operating costs run around $25,000.00 for the hundreds of animals we treat and release, giving them a second chance at a wild life. Making a donation to our organization will help us continue to offer our wildlife rehabilitation services, child and adult education programs, and humane wildlife problem resolution services to the community. There are several ways to donate to YUWR so that we may continue our mission of caring for injured and orphaned animals and educating the public. All donations are tax deductible, whether you make a monetary or material donation. Thank you for your support.

We are currently hoping to upgrade our SLOW wildlife hotline phone from an iPhone6 to an iPhone 8 or better. If you have an old iPhone 8 sitting in a drawer somewhere collecting dust, please consider donating it to our wildlife center to be used for our wildlife emergency hotline and on-the-go camera. We can give you a tax deductible donation receipt for the full used value. If you would like to contact us about this, please send a text, call, or email to 510-421-9897 or info@yuwr.org  Thanks!
