IFAW helps care for wildlife victims in Oklahoma following Moore tornado

Rescuers from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org) have mobilized another team to Oklahoma. Their mission: to help care for wildlife affected by the devastating Moore tornado. Resident raptors, mammals and songbirds were injured and displaced by high winds and habitat destruction.

IFAW’s team is working with The WildCare Foundation located just 18 miles south of Moore in Noble, Oklahoma. The facility has received an additional 60 animals as a result of the disaster and reached out to IFAW for help.
