Wild Bird Rescue Loses Executive Director

I am sad to report that Bob Lindsay, Executive Director at Wild Bird Rescue, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, April 25.

Bob was a great friend of the birds and worked hard to make Wild Bird Rescue the excellent bird rehab facility it is today. He will be greatly missed by all of the volunteers at Wild Bird Rescue and by the community.

Lila Arnold, a long-time rehabilitator for Wild Bird Rescue and Assistant Director, has been appointed the Interim Executive Director.

Those wishing to make a donation to Wild Bird Rescue in Bob's memory are encouraged to do so. You are welcome to drop off or mail your donation to Wild Bird Rescue, 4611 Lake Shore Drive, Wichita Falls, TX 76310. You may also make a credit card donation at the facility or over the phone at 940-691-0828. Donations by credit card or by paypal may also be made at the organization website.

Those wishing to contribute to the family or wishing to drop off cards may drop/mail to Wild Bird Rescue at the address listed above. Be sure to put his wife, Phyllis's, name on the envelope so volunteers put the card in the correct place to have them delivered to the family.

The funeral is tomorrow, April 27, at 7PM at Owens Brumley funeral home.
