Why should I leave a gift to Pacific Wildlife Care?

Because PWC, as the only licensed rehabilitation organization in San Luis Obispo County for birds, land animals, and reptiles, relies on donations and volunteers. A planned gift provides the resources we need to succeed, and enables us to fund future programs and strategies. 

PWC gives you the opportunity to make tax-wise planned gift to help the wildlife in our county. As development advances throughout the county our wildlife is often impacted.

You don’t have to be wealthy to make a planned gift. People of every age and income level can make a planned gift to ensure that wildlife in San Luis Obispo County are cared for when needed.
