The Owl Foundation

The non-profit Owl Foundation, originally called the Owl Rehabilitation Research Foundation, was founded by Kay and Larry McKeever in the 1970s.  In 1994 It was re-incorporated under federal law as a Canadian non-profit corporation, with the current name.

The Owl Foundation is operated by a very small staff and relies on volunteer support in many ways. Most of the Foundation's funding comes from individuals, with some from corporations and granting foundations.

The Owl Foundation's commitments include the survival of Ontario's owls through rehabilitation and release of injured birds, and educating the public about the vital role of owls in the ecosystem.

Many of the over 100 owls we receive annually are transferred to us from rehabilitation centres and veterinary clinics after initial medical attention is given. We provide these birds with quality convalescent care that few other facilities can offer, as well as assessments for training and release and considerations for our captive breeding and foster parenting programs.
