Imagine seeing a lump on the side of the road. Suddenly you realize that it is an injured wild animal and it isn’t dead, yet! You stop and now you have a Great Horned owl with a broken wing or a turtle with a cracked shell or an injured mother opossum with babies in her pouch. That animal’s life literally lies in your hands. You want desperately to help but what can you do! Where do you go for help?
The WildCare Foundation provides a place for people to bring native injured or orphaned wild animals struggling to survive with the goal of releasing healthy animals back to nature. We are a wildlife rehabilitation facility for any wild animal native to Oklahoma. WildCare can assess the animal’s condition and provide the needed medical care and housing until recovered and healthy enough to be released back into the wild. WildCare believes that all wild species be it sparrow or eagle, opossum or bobcat play an important role in keeping the planet healthy. For this reason we accept and treat all wild native birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
The WildCare Foundation accepts and treats approximately 4,500 wild animals yearly that are struggling to survive with the ultimate goal of releasing all healthy animals back into their natural habitat. Since we began in 1984 we have cared for over 55,000 wild lives!
The WildCare Foundation needs your support! We are a non-profit [IRS 501(c)3] organization supported solely by donations from caring individuals like you. WildCare is also a Combined Federated Charity #57195. Please consider making a donation now to support our efforts. With your support many of these animals will see freedom again.
WildCare is excited to announce the new Wildlife Rescue and Education Center building campaign to raise $375,000 for a 5,200 square foot building located on WildCare’s 7 acres in Noble, Oklahoma. The Wildlife Rescue and Education Center will allow the animals space for separate nurseries for songbirds, mammals, raptors, predators and reptiles along with a clinic. There will be room for food preparation, laundry, office space and even living space for Interns. But most importantly it will be an Education Center. Have you ever wondered how and where we care for these animals? Ever dream of watching the fawns romp amongst the trees? The Education Center will have viewing windows into several nurseries and remote cameras to many of the outside enclosures.
