Osprey about to be released

A rehabilitated osprey about to be released into the wild.

Osprey released into wild.

And even for this bird I've never seen
I am unprepared for absence
or for the empty prairie at dawn.
(From Adopt-A-Prairie-Chicken by Erica Caldwell)

The Rowena Wildlife Clinic is a registered non-profit organization. Thanks to your support, we treat and rehabilitate about 250 wild animals per year. We depend on donations from dedicated, compassionate people like you. More information on how to donate to the Rowena Wildlife Clinic are listed here.

Even with a mostly volunteer staff, the Rowena Wildlife Clinic incurs considerable costs each month. There's food, medicine, surgical and diagnostic equipment for the animals and a constant need for building and cage repairs. If you've enjoyed the pictures and stories in this site, and if you believe that it is right and proper for people to repair some of the damage our mechanized lives have caused to the native animals, won't you make a donation?

About a thousand people view this site each month. If each gave only five dollars, the Clinic could continue indefinitely. If each gave ten, the Clinic could expand. That's the cost of a couple of frappucinos! Below are some easy ways to donate, including setting up a monthly donation. Please help us if you can.

Best in America Seal

The Rowena Wildlife Clinic has been awarded the Seal of Excellence by the Independent Charities of America. The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world. Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.
