Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Bird Sanctuaries

Mission: We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and a no-kill sanctuary for exotic animals. We also hold licenses with the USDA, USDI, and the state of Oklahoma; as well as hold a degree in Wildlife Biology with over 45 years of experience. Sanctuaries exist in recognition that all lives have value and that we have an obligation to attempt to right the wrongs that some humans have done to animals. Wild Bill’s Sanctuary will offer a place of refuge to help in protecting the quality of life and improve the wellbeing of abused, neglected, unwanted or displaced exotic animals through prevention, education, intervention, placement, and lifetime care where they will live out their lives with dignity, love, and respect. With education being a large priority for us, we strive to educate the public on each animal. This education includes the origin of the species, as well as where it can be found in the wild, the species lifestyle, diet and day to day habits. We will educate the public/increase awareness about the responsibilities of proper care and animal husbandry through seminars and promote the prevention of animal mistreatment through quality educational programs and events in our community while teaching kindness and compassion towards animals, each other and our planet. We are a donation only facility staffed by volunteers. We are closed to the public as we feel it is in the best interest of the animals here to live free from the added stress of daily visitors. This makes it more difficult for us to raise funds, but our primary concern is the health and disposition of each animal. We believe in a stress free environment with proper nutrition and a variety of enrichment programs. While the grounds are closed, small educational tours and demonstrations can be arranged by appointment only. Our primary goal is for the safety and health of our animals. We will be a voice for the animals in our community, state and nation. We depend on volunteers, fundraising, charitable donations, sponsors and/or generous benefactors. We will provide financial or physical assistance to other 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations providing support to animal rescue services within the United States.

Results: We are currently applying for grants and raising funds for a new Primate/ Reptile House. This new enclosure will have indoor/outdoor year round environments for all primates so that they will not have to be transported back and forth between there summer and winter environments. This building will also allow us to rescue more reptiles as we are out of space for any new arrivals at this time.

I was honored to get a full tour of the sanctuary and was amazed at the care these animals receive. Bill & Wendy have done an outstanding job of caring for the animals. This is a place that is all about the animals and not about the money. They work on a volunteer basis so they don't receive an income for all that they do, so they are in need of donations just to help them with the expense of feeding, building and expanding as well as educational programs. This is a place where your tax deductible donations are truly going into the complete care of the animals. I highly recommend Wild Bill's Sanctuary.

Wild Bill's is one of the few places that I can honestly say it is all about the animals there its not about making money or exploiting them for profit like so many other places, Wild Bill's is TRULY all for the animals, I have never seen animals get as much love and attention as they do there, Ive learned so much there about the animals and about myself as well thanks to the owners of Wild Bill's, I have volunteered at other places and there it was always about money but not at Wild Bill's I wish more places were like that.

Wild Bill's Sanctuary is an amazing place! It is SO refreshing to know that the staff and owners are in it for the animals...not the money. I have visited the sanctuary's ground and the animals looked so happy and well taken care of. I love knowing these magnificent creatures are safe and in good hands! The staff is very friendly and offered detailed information about each specific animal. They really recognize that these animals have unique personalities all their own and they are still wild and should be treated as such! Bill and Kim are amazing people with big hearts and they are incredible at what they do. They also have a wonderful group of volunteers who work their tails off for the animals!
