OUTER BANKS WILDLIFE SHELTER...

Preserve Local Wildlife

Our mission is to provide quality care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in order to successfully rehabilitate and return them to the wild, and to educate and involve the public in this endeavor so as to encourage the peaceful co-existence of man and animal.

OWLS, was founded in 1988.  It began as a volunteer network of volunteers who cared for injured/orphaned animals/birds in the homes of the volunteers and was coordinated by the first director, Stephanie Goetzinger. For the next ten years the organization moved to several different locations in Morehead City.  In 1998 it moved to their currant location at 100 Wildlife Way, Newport where they have five acres of property with a full service animal hospital to provide care for the injured animals/birds that are brought to them.

Educating the public on how to peacefully cohabit our environment with local, native wildlife is another endeavor of OWLS.  Education outreach programs, such as this one, help us to learn how to peacefully coexist with our local, native wildlife and reduce the damage inflicted on them by our intrusion into their world.  Through education OWLS hopes to increase awareness and respect for the natural world we live in and the animals within it.

OWLS, is a non-profit organization that does not receive state or federal funding.  They rely solely on donations and fund raising and the help of volunteers.
