Our Founder

Stephanie Brady, founder and executive director, started Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. She began working with wildlife under the supervision of a veterinarian at age 15. Stephanie has the veterinary experience to back her selfless endeavor. She was an emergency medicine and internal medicine veterinary technician with over 17 years experience, in the DFW area. In December 2015, the idea of a wildlife facility was formed after she rehabilitated more than 200 animals in 5 months, quickly realizing that a home-based operation would not be big enough to handle the demand.

In April 2016, she was donated a large, double-wide trailer to renovate into Amarillo’s first-ever wildlife rehabilitation center located on five acres. Then in July 2016, we received our incorporation paperwork and nonprofit (c)(3) status with the IRS.

Since then, Stephanie her team have cared for over 15,000 animals. Visit our Facebook page to learn more.
