WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Staff at the Wild Bird Rescue in Wichita Falls had their eighth annual Owl Be Home for Christmas Fundraisers at Smith’s Gardentown.

The rescue raised $1,500 that will be going towards continuing to take care of 9 protected rescue birds, including three species of owls, two different types of hawks, a falcon. and a vulture. Five of them made a special appearance during the fundraiser as consumers were able to ask questions and learn all about these majestic birds.

“I get people all the time that say wow, I didn’t know you had a facility until I looked it up. We’re just wanting to make our presence known and let people know that we want to keep wildlife wild, we want to keep them happy and healthy,” said Adlai Olson, director of Wild Bird Rescue.

Staff said that while this time of the year is slower because of migration, they are also looking for some volunteers for the spring to help them take care of Texoma’s wildlife.
