Wildlife rehab center marks 25 years of rescuing Wisconsin's wild population
(OCONOMOWOC) – It started out very small. Operating out of a one-bedroom house in Waukesha by animal advocate Nancy Frank in 1994, the Wildlife in Need Center now located just south of Oconomowoc has certainly come a long way.
Director of Animal Care Mandy Feavel says the non-profit serving Waukesha County now has a handful of paid staff members and hundreds of volunteers all working to help thousands of patients over the years. In 2018 alone, the center saw more than 3,300 animals come through their doors.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael Schlesinger takes us inside the organization that’s become a rescue squad for Wisconsin’s vulnerable wildlife and finds out why these passionate animal lovers take on the responsibility of caring for the nature around them.
