The Wildlife Rescue Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to professional wildlife rehabilitation and public education. Every year, more than 2,500 injured, sick, and orphaned native Missouri wild animals are admitted for care. Since 1979, the Wildlife Rescue Center has treated more than 50,000 wild patients representing more than 200 different species.

Nearly every patient is admitted due to human-caused circumstances. These include car strikes, attacks by pets, injuries caused by trash, and accidental abductions of wild babies from their parents. Dedicated staff and volunteers provide expert care while maintaining the wild integrity of each animal to help ensure their success after release.

Through public outreach and on-site education programs, the Wildlife Rescue Center teaches about co-existing with wildlife and protecting the environment we share. Knowledgeable volunteers and staff field over 12,000 phone calls annually, advising callers about wildlife emergencies and resolving conflicts humanely.

The Wildlife Rescue Center relies on donations from the public and dedicated volunteers. Without this support, the mission of the Wildlife Rescue Center could not be fulfilled.
