Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center celebrate grand opening.

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - On Saturday, April 27, the Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will celebrate its grand opening at 2901 N. Soncy.

Volunteers built a new facility for the Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center to help abandoned, hurt and sick wildlife.

“There’s never been a wildlife center ever in the history of Amarillo, and we are it for 26 counties," said Stephanie Brady with Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. "So, just an appreciation for the wildlife that we coexist with we know that some people think some are a nuisance, but sometimes we encroach on their habitat, and we disturb their nests or their homes, and then they come out and get into things. We just have to learn how to be good neighbors with them peacefully.”

On Saturday, starting at 11:00 a.m., you can enjoy a meal sponsored by Outback Steak House, meet the animals and talk with local game wardens.

“Dr. Wolf is going to be here with her entire team. We love Dr. Wolf and we’ll also have several of the game wardens from the Panhandle will be here as well as the film crew for Lone Star Law as part of the first episode for Lone Star Law,” said Brady.

Participants will be celebrating the volunteers who spent countless hours building the rehabilitation center.

While a majority of our team was at the Amarillo Sod Poodles Professional Baseball Game today another part of our team was diligently continuing to get outdoor enclosures ready at the Wildlife Center. Volunteers Bob and Megan built platforms inside the Coyote enclosure and prepped the Raccoon enclosure for our 2019 babies #divideandconquer #ittakesavillage
