'Adopt' a Willowbrook Wildlife Center animal
The Friends of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is sponsoring an "Adopt an Animal" program on behalf of Willowbrook Wildlife Center, which provides medical treatment and rehabilitation to more than 9,000 native and migrant animals each year.
The program seeks people to "adopt" one of its permanently injured resident animals for one year by making a tax-deductible contribution. It will provide food, medical care and enrichment.
Injured animals include "Kitty," a bobcat deemed unfit for release after being hit by a car in 2007, and "Andre," a great horned owl with head trauma and blindness in one eye after being hit by a car in 2005.
