Every day at the Rogers Wildlife and Rehabilitation Center, adorable ducks, magnificent raptors, and countless other varieties of fowl are dropped off by Good Samaritans and delivered into the healing hands of Kathy Rogers.
For 35 years, her mission has been to get orphaned and injured birds back in the air — where they belong.
As the only rehab facility of its kind in North Texas, the non-profit relies on donations. The center takes in more than 5,000 broken and baby birds annually. Care is constant and costly. The center spends nearly ,000 annually on mice alone.
Kathy Rogers says she has until April to raise 0,000, or she will be forced to turn the suffering creatures away.

So McMahon took it upon herself to create a haven for injured birds by founding the Wild Bird Fund, which remains the only wildlife rehabilitation center in the city.
