alem Wildlife Rehabilitation Assoc. is an all-volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

SWRA is dedicated to the wildlife in and surrounding the community of Salem, Oregon. We work closely with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to meet our goals of rehabilitating native wildlife and releasing them back into the wild. All our licensed wildlife rehabilitators rely on your donations and often their own pockets to nurse the sick, injured and orphaned animals back to health. SWRA has been a part of your community since 1987.
