Rescuing Wildlife In Scottsdale, Ariz.

When a coyote is hit by a car or a Canada goose cuts its leg on a fishing line, the folks at Liberty Wildlife — a rescue and research group in Scottsdale — take the creatures in and treat them and try to return them to the wild.

Some 300 volunteers help with the work, says Executive Director Megan Mosby.

"Volunteers are everything to Liberty Wildlife," Megan says. "We have volunteers who have been with us for as long as 25 years... They are respected for their contribution and participate in the mission from start to finish. "
