SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Scottsdale wildlife refuge is among the places left damaged by a massive storm battering the Southwest.

Officials at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center said Friday the storm has caused more than $50,000 in damages.

The storm has dumped 10 inches (25 centimeters) of snow on the property near 156th Street and Rio Verde Drive. As a result, the roofs of at least 10 enclosures have caved in while others have been completely decimated.

Other damage includes burst pipes.

The facility rescues native wild animals and rehabilitates them for release, including wolves, bobcats and coyotes.

They are asking for donations as well as grants in emergency funding.
