  • Mission:
  • The Alabama Wildlife Center has a dual mission of caring for Alabama’s injured and orphaned native birds in order to return them to the wild, and educating the public to understand and appreciate native wildlife in our state.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1977 as a small, home-based, all-volunteer organization, the Alabama Wildlife Center is now Alabama’s largest wildlife rehabilitation center. Since its inception, well over 50,000 native Alabama wild animals have been helped because of the efforts of the Alabama Wildlife Center. The organization has been in continuous service 365 days a year for over 30 years. AWC’s Wildlife Help Line provides free advice and information on how to deal with all kinds of wildlife problems and emergencies. It has been in continuous operation 365 days a year since 1981 and receives thousands of calls each year. More than 100,000 Alabamians have been helped over the years. The Alabama Wildlife Center has five full-time permanent employees who care for the animals, provide educational programming and manage the business affairs of the organization. In addition, AWC relies heavily on its volunteer staff of more than 200 people to carry out its various animal rescue, rehabilitation and public education services. The Alabama Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1) nonprofit organization and receives no public funds. All current cash income is derived from membership dues, individual donations and corporate and foundation grants.
