I found an injured or orphaned animal. Can I bring it to you?

No. The state requires certain permits and licensing to rehab animals that we do not have. In Kansas you can call Operation Wildlife at (785) 542-3625. Their website has a Resource page that offers great information on how to care for the animal until you can get it to them. In Missouri you will need to call Lakeside Nature Center at (816) 513-8960. 


Remember, the best place for a wild animal is in it's own habitat. If the animal is not injured it is best to leave it where you found it.
