Operation WildLife Environmental Teaching Service (O.W.L.E.T.S.) will be hosting a special wildlife show during Kansas City Pagan Pride Day this year on 15 September 2013 from 10:45-11:30 at the Merriam Market Place, 5740 Merriam Dr, Merriam KS.
Operation WildLife (OWL) provides rehabilitation services for injured and orphaned wild animals, and wildlife education for the citizens of northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. They are the largest publicly funded wildlife clinic in Kansas, according to Kansas Wildlife and Parks statistics. They receive thousands of wild animals each year, and the release rate averages 69% from year to year – 20% higher than the national average of 49%. They receive NO state or federal funding, relying entirely on donations to exist. It is the generosity of people like you that makes it possible for us to continue providing veterinary care, food and rehabilitation for wild animals, with the goal of releasing them back to the wild.

Kansas City Pagan Pride Day hosts a fund raising activity each year as part of the day’s activities. This activity has raised thousands of dollars for various worthy local non-profit organizations to include the Hope House, Wayside Waifs, Harvesters, Rose Brooks Center, Children’s Miracle Network, Solace House, Ronald McDonald House, SAFEHOME, and the Southwest Boulevard Family Health Center.
This year we will are proud to be supporting Operation WildLife, Inc. (OWL) with a charity raffle. Local vendors, festival vendors and other wonderful supporters of Kansas City Pagan Pride Day have made generous donations to raffle. This is not something to be missed. You will also not need to be present to win this year (though you do need to come by and purchase your ticket).
About Kansas City Pagan Pride Day
The International Pagan Pride Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination through education, activism, charity and community. Pagan Pride celebrations are held annually around the world within two weeks of the Autumn Equinox. The Pagan Pride Day Project is pleased to announce that in 2013 we have over 100 events anticipated during the Harvest festivals between August and November across the globe with events in the USA, Canada, Europe, and across Latin America.
Our hope is that you would take this opportunity to experience a first-person view of not only what we do but how we do it. By doing so, our desire is that you might gain a better understanding our our beliefs and practices, even if you differ in religious opinions and approach. Attending any Pagan Pride event will provide you with basic information about our spirituality, so that both experience and knowledge can combine to open lines of communication and to identify common ground. With that in mind, please feel welcomed to join us on an informative journey into the sacred circles of contemporary Paganism.
