What we do
Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release
Wildlife Rescue receives over 10,000 wild animals every year. Among these are opossums, raccoons, bobcats, coyotes, skunks, squirrels, and many other mammals along with over 100 species of birds and many reptiles.
We believe that all animals — rare or common, regardless of species — are deserving of our care, attention, and respect. Whether through training, education, advocacy, or direct animal care, WRR fulfills its commitment to wildlife protection and ethical relations between humans and the natural world.
WRR provides permanent residence to over 500 animals. No animal lives behind bars – we have taken what nature has provided and simply enclosed a portion of it for the animals to give them a comfortable and stimulating home for the rest of their lives. Among those in sanctuary are over 300 animals who are commonly found on farms. Rescued from FFA programs, cruelty situations, abandonment, and auction—these are just a few of the circumstances that make up the histories of the farmed animals at WRR.
At Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation, there are many opportunities for Volunteers to learn about the hundreds of species of wildlife found in South Texas while helping them recover from injuries, illnesses, and the trauma of being orphaned. Our facilities are in operation seven days a week, and with a variety of jobs and shifts to choose from, you can find the right position for you!
