WildCare Oklahoma provides medical care and rehabilitation to over 7,000 wild animals each year, giving them a second chance at life in the wild.

WildCare Foundation is Oklahoma's largest and oldest wildlife rehabilitation center, admitting over 7,000 injured, ill, and orphaned wild animals each year, giving them a second chance at life in the wild. WildCare is also a leading voice for wildlife advocacy in the state through it's hotline, educational programming, and public awareness efforts. At WildCare, 96.5% of all revenue (as reported on the 990) goes to support our direct service programs including:

Wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and release. We admit and care for over 7,000 patients a year.

WildCare’s wildlife hospital. It’s the only native wildlife hospital in Oklahoma staffed with a full-time veterinarian, two registered veterinary technicians, and a veterinary assistant.

WildCare’s education and public information programming. We provide over 60 education and information sessions reaching over 7,000 people annually.

WildCare’s wildlife hotline where we humanely resolve human/wildlife conflicts and provide other technical assistance. We answer 50-100 calls/day & are the only place answering calls after 5 pm, on weekends & during holidays.

WildCare’s internship, fellowship, and veterinary externship programs. Training the next generation of wildlife biologists, rehabilitators, veterinary technicians, and veterinarians, we host 15 fellows and a dozen veterinary students each year with many more students or mid-career professionals shadowing rehabilitation and hospital staff.

WildCare’s volunteer program. WildCare had 98 people contribute over 5,000 hours to WildCare’s operations in 2022; we also host corporations, service organizations, student groups, scout troops, and other group projects.

Rehabilitative care and placement to confiscated animals. These are animals confiscated by law enforcement and have no where else to go for help.

Advocacy for wildlife, their shrinking and fragmenting habitats, and the people that care about Oklahoma’s wildlife.
