The Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center was founded in May 1983 under the Environmental Education section within the Education Branch of Arizona Game and Fish. Its primary role is to rescue and rehabilitate Arizona wildlife and to educate Arizona residents and visitors about our unique diversity of animals.
More than 1,000 animals pass through its doors annually. By providing temporary and long-term medical and rehabilitation services, the Center provides sick, injured or orphaned wildlife a second chance for survival.
The Wildlife Center Auxiliary assists the Center in a number of ways, including many volunteer hours spent in daily care and maintenance of the facility (and its "residents") and in fundraising.
The Center operates on a limited budget, deriving all operational resources from the Heritage Fund's "Lottery Dollars Working for Wildlife" and private donations. The efforts of the Auxiliary ensures the Center will have the necessary resources to support the day-to-day needs as well as provide the extra support during times of environmental
disasters such as wild fires, floods and drought.
