Kim Carr, the senior keeper at the center, said the skunk was found by concerned homeowners in the West Valley.
"They saw a little white and black ball of fur rolling down in the water and they realized it was a skunk and in trouble," Carr said.
The residents took the skunk home, wrapped it up and got it dry, she said. The skunk arrived at the center's doorstep on Wednesday.
The center is also looking after another animal found without its mother from one of last week's storms.
A 1-week-old mule deer was discovered in a wash at Desert Mountain Golf Course north of Carefree on Aug. 13.
"She was in an area where her mom couldn't access her," Carr said.
Carr said the staff is bottle feeding the deer every few hours.
"She'll eventually stay here and live in our sanctuary."
It's fairly uncommon for the center to see animals coming their way after a monsoon storm, Carr said. She added what usually happens is the animals don't survive the monsoon's flash flooding or destructive winds.
The center has rescued and rehabilitated thousands of wild animals over the years.
