The Wildlife Rescue Center treats over 2,500 wild animals every year. Most of the animals admitted for rehabilitation have been injured or orphaned by human activity. The Center is able to provide its services of rescue, rehabilitation, and release thanks to the support of our compassionate community. Through nature inspired education programs, the Center promotes environmental awareness and encourages the protection of our delicate ecosystems.

Bring your friends and family to a celebration of wild families!

       

Wild Bird Rehabilitation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Overland, Missouri and serving communities throughout the state. Last year we cared for over 2000 native wild songbirds. We receive no federal or state funding and are supported totally by donations from individuals, corporations and fundraisers. WBR is staffed primarily by volunteers who donate their time to help area birds.

Our mission is to provide care for injured, ill and orphaned native wild songbirds and to release them back into their natural habitat. We also provide public education regarding the humane treatment of wild songbirds and the conservation of their habitat.



Nestled among 165-acres of woodland near Union, Missouri, the Humane Society of Missouri's Longmeadow Rescue Ranch is haven for hundreds of abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, pigs, ducks and other farm animals. The ranch is one of the most comprehensive horse and farm animal care and rehabilitation centers in the country. In addition to animal care, ranch staff provide hands-on humane education experiences for both children and adults.
