The Wildlife Rescue Center rehabilitates sick, injured, and orphaned native wildlife and releases healthy animals to their natural habitat. Through educational outreach the Center provides environmental awareness, promotes a harmonious relationship with native wildlife, and encourages the community to protect our delicate ecosystems.
Please call (636) 394-1880: if you have found an animal that has obvious injuries or illness. Do not give any food or water as this can be harmful to the animal. Don't be a kidnapper: finding a young animal alone does not necessarily mean it needs "help" from a human. Wild babies are sometimes left alone while their parent(s) look for food.
