Emergency Wildlife Move

News & Events

Help Us Move Our Wildlife!

Nebraska Wildlife Rehab is in an EMERGENCY SITUATION!  Facing the hottest days of the year, our air conditioning at the Wildlife Center is down, and will not be repaired for several weeks.  We have some temporary fixes in place, but still need to move about half of our animals out of the building.  We have lined up an outdoor space for them, but need to erect about 8 large enclosures within the next few days.  To make this happen, we need the following list of supplies and cash donations.  We will update this as items are donated.  Please check back for our updated needs as we deal with this situation.  Thank you so much for your concern and your help!


Donations can be dropped off at:

The Wildlife Center in Louisville (16215 Highway 50)

If you can provide any of these supplies in the next few days, or for an updated list of supplies needed, please e-mail the details to with the subject line “Emergency Supplies.” We will get back to you ASAP.  If you can deliver your donations, that will help tremendously, but we will work to find volunteers who can pick up the supplies as well. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
