More Ways To Help

Thinking of including Wildworks in your estate plans?

We can’t think of a better legacy than making sure more wildlife get second chances. Let us know your plans, so that we and the animals can thank you. You'll automatically become a member of the Phoenix Legacy Circle, named for the mountain lion who started it all, Phoenix.

List Of Items You Can Donate To The Nature Of Wildworks

The Nature of Wildworks is a nonprofit 501(c)3 and we rely completely on donations to care for our animals. By donating items, you reduce the amount of money we need to spend on those items, which means we have more money to spend on vet bills and other necessary purchases that come up. You are directly helping us rescue and care for our animals! If you would like to donate any of these items please contact Meagan at
