Wildlife Rescue Group Money Woes

KSAL StaffJuly 1, 2014

A northeast Kansas organization that helps returned injured animals to the wild is suffering from some financial injuries.

Operation Wildlife in Linwood is facing an unexpected $12,000 in repair costs after its well, washing machine and air conditioner broke down in the last month.

Director Diane Johnson said Monday the problems come at the busiest time of the year for the organization, which is full of baby animals and the usual number of injured animals.

The organization found out a month ago that its well was collapsing. A contractor fixed the well and agreed to do the work on credit. The air conditioner went out a few days later.

Operation Wildlife is licensed but receives no government funds. It draws all its funds from donations.
