Animal lovers can help support rescued wildlife by adopting an animal at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC). Adoptions will help the center provide the food and care of each animal's specialized needs. Although sponsors don't physically take wildlife in, each adoption will come with a personalized adoption certificate, a photo of the adopted animal, and a choice of herbivore, large carnivore or small carnivore Animal Kingdom Trading Cards. Each trading card set includes several different animals and fun facts about their way of life. The higher adoption levels also include a plush stuffed animal of the adopted species, Nature Center tour gift certificates, and the SWCC Wildlife Identification Board. The adoption levels range from Naturalist to Preservationist and start at $25. Adoptions are available year-round online at
