Palm Springs Wildlife Advocates was formed in 2020 in response to the need to provide support for wildlife in the Coachella Valley and beyond. Most members of the public have difficulty finding the right resources to help wildlife in need. PSWA provides the bridge to determine how to help wildlife, either through advice, advocacy, or in-the-field assistance.
Our volunteers work with injured and orphaned wild animals, using specialized techniques and diets to facilitate their recovery and ultimate release. They often do this at their own expense and on their own time—answering wildlife rescue calls from the public, transporting and doing field rescues of injured wildlife, in addition to fundraising and educating people on how to coexist with these essential creatures that share our natural environment.
We network closely with animal control agencies and partner with rehabilitation facilities and local veterinarians, who provide essential medical care or humane euthanasia when absolutely necessary.
