Advocates for wildlife... providing professional rehabilitation services for injured and orphaned wild animals, and wildlife education for the citizens of northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri since 1989.
Nature's course takes a cruel turn when a wild animal is... -hit by a car -shot illegally -poisoned -injured by a trap, fence, window, power line or fishhook -displaced by construction -caught by a cat or dog -possessed illegally as a "pet"...
In cooperation with the members of the community, local veterinarians, and state and federal wildlife agencies, Operation WildLife (OWL) provides rehabilitation and a temporary haven for wild animals in need of help. OWL acts in the best interest of each animal received. After emergency needs are met and stabilized, a program for total recovery is designed. This includes medical attention, special housing, natural foods or close substitutes, and foster siblings or parents for juveniles. All are essential in order for wild animals to be physically and behaviorally prepared to return to their natural habitat.
