National organizations come to the aid of Okla. animals
MOORE, Okla.- While many human survivors of the May storms are picking up the pieces, a new program is helping wild animals that have been displaced by the tornadoes.
Animal Lifeline’s RescueU program is in Oklahoma building a new home for wild animals that were impacted by the weather.
WildCare was in the middle of its busiest season when the storms hit.
Within the first three weeks after the storms, 840 wild animals struggling to survive arrived at the facility.
While workers wanted to help all the survivors, they simply did not have the space.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare called and offered to help.
The foundation made a donation of $15,000 to build an enclosure.
Rondi Large, director of WildCare, said, “It is just amazing to see so many national groups working together to help the wildlife of Oklahoma.”
