AHF Donates to the Orange County Bird of Prey Center

Laura Weatherford, DVM and board member of the Animal Health Foundation in Lake Forest, CA recently presented a $2,500 donation to the Orange County Bird of Prey Center.

Dr. Weatherford was joined by Drs. Weldy and Krause who brought Nubs a Great Horned Owl that the center uses for public education.

The Orange County Bird of Prey Center is a volunteer organization in Orange County, CA, dedicated to treating and rehabilitating injured raptors and returning them to the wild.  We believe that education is the best long-term solution to prevent and mitigate many of the dangers that raptors face.

Scott Weldy, DVM and Kristi Krause, DVM of the Serrano Animal and Bird Center, are the driving forces behind the Center.  In 2016, volunteers performed over 4,000 hours and provided 84 education presentations concerning birds of prey.  In additon, more than 84 raptors were returned to the wild thanks to these dedicated people.

The center is relocating from a temporary, private facility to a permanent, publicly accessible location which will provide housing for approximately 250 birds at any time.  The Animal Health Foundation is proud to be able to help the center in their efforts.

The Animal Health Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to helping pets and wildlife in times if need through various programs in the Southern California communities we serve. For information about or programs, please visit our website at or contact our Executive Director at
