Breaden Wildlife Rehab was founded in 1973 by the Breaden family. Located in Lawton, OK, Breaden Wildlife Rehab is the only wildlife rehab center in south Oklahoma. The small, family-owned and volunteer operated organization runs on out-of-pocket funds and donations from the community. Although Breaden Wildlife Rehab takes in all forms of wildlife, the organization specializes in raptor rehabilitation.
Breaden Wildlife Rehab also acts as an outlet for wildlife and environmental education. Wallie Breaden, the organization's successor, regularly visits schools, libraries, environmental seminars, and other outlets to educate the public and expand awareness of the dangers humans pose to the local wildlife. Additionally, Wallie serves as the go-to rehabilitation expert for prominent areas such as Ft. Sill and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
Breaden Wildlife Rehab is dedicated to providing care for sick, injured, or disabled wildlife with the intent to rehabilitate and return them to their natural environment.
To become a premiere, government-funded wildlife rehabilitation center known throughout all of south Oklahoma.
