MEET OUR CHARITY
WildCare Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and re-release of injured and orphaned native Oklahoma wildlife. Located in Noble, Oklahoma, it was co-founded in 1984 by Executive Director Rondi Large and Facility Director O.T. Sanders, two dedicated volunteers who have lead WildCare through the last 30 years of growth and success. Our team at AnthroExpo is thrilled to partner with WildCare as its charity of choice for 2020.
Since opening, over 100,000 wild animals have passed through our doors. Over 7,000 patients representing over 140 different species are treated annually thanks to thousands of willing rescuers and dedicated supporters. Visit our facebook page to learn about past and current patients.
WildCare Foundation was officially incorporated in 1994 and approved as a tax-exempt non-profit IRS 501(c)3 organization in 1995.
