At the heart of Mission Driven is our animal rescue work. Since we began, we have helped over 1000 long-term shelter pets find loving homes and have raised over $500,000 for shelter campaigns.
Our work is endless. Every day we get requests to help different animal shelters and organizations with fundraising or help homeless pets who need a forever home.
Last week we had the privilege of stepping outside our norm of animal shelters for dogs and cats and help Operation Wildlife.
Operation Wildlife provides rehabilitation and veterinary services to injured and orphaned wild animals in the Kansas City metro and surrounding area. They have been caring for wild animals since 1989 and help over 3000 wild animals on-site every year. They have three staff members and over 100 volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate, and release the wild animals that come to their facility.
Operation Wildlife is the largest publicly funded wildlife rehabilitation in Kansas. They are dedicated to helping animals return to their natural habitat each year and even educate local residents on keeping wildlife wild. And they survive on public donations!
"We are advocates for wildlife, providing professional rehabilitation services for injured and orphaned wild animals and wildlife education for citizens of northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri." — OPERATION WILDLIFE
Operation Wildlife reached out to Scott last week asking for some help with the fundraising project. They recently purchased a brand new residential washer and dryer. But after helping 300+ wild animals and doing 20+ loads of laundry a day, they already need to replace it.
Think about all the times you see someone tag this organization when there is an injured or abandoned wild animal. Once they rescue it, we tend to forget about them, but that's when the real work begins. And they needed our help.
As with any organization, they have fantastic staff and volunteers who took matters into their own hands and would take dirty laundry to the laundromat. But this was not an ideal solution.
Mission Driven stepped in.
After touring the facility and sharing videos with the Mission Driven community, Scott set up a fundraising page for Operation Wildlife to get a new commercial-grade washer and dryer.
Guess what? Within a few days, a little under $5000 was raised for that purpose.
Thanks to the generous community, Operation Wildlife will get a commercial-grade washer and dryer and will say goodbye to never-ending laundry piles!
