Greenwood takes in approximately 2,500 to 3,000 wild animals each year including birds, squirrels, rabbits, foxes and raccoons. The Colorado Division of Wildlife and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service license Greenwood to provide professional care to wildlife orphans and injured wildlife while avoiding taming them, so that those deemed capable can be released back to the wild. In recent years, Greenwood has placed heavy emphasis on education, including coaching citizens on how to safely reunite young wildlife with their parents, thus dramatically reducing intakes. The Center maintains a small staff that works closely with veterinarians, a cadre of volunteers, and a board of directors. Funding for Greenwood comes primarily from private donors and grants.
