We are an ALL volunteer Non-Profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release or orphaned and injured wildlife in the Texas Panhandle. Currently this year we have helped over 800 animals that came into care. That is a large amount of animals to care for between three Wildlife Rehabilitators, out of their homes. Recently a kind woman donated a large double wide trailer for us to renovate for a public center.  However, it is almost 25 years old and needs LOTS of renovations.  As wildlife rehabilitators we don't make any money doing this, in fact, we pay out of our own pocket to buy formula, pay for treatment, and caging for animals in our care until release.  So this is a big finacial undertaking but greatly needed for the Texas Panhandle.  100% of the donations go towards supplies and renovating the building to make it habitable and safe for wildlife in care, volunteers, and the public. There is also a well on the property we will be leasing that needs to be repaired in order for us to get running water into the building.  By helping us get this center up and running you will be helping thousands of orphaned and injured wildlife. We will continue to post updates on her and you can also follow us on FB (Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center) to see the progress.  Your suport will mean the world to us and allow us to care for wildife all over the Texas Panhandle.  We can't do this without you.

Our volunteers and Boy Scouts continue to work hard on renovating the center. We would like to have the center open by late Spring or early Summer in order to handle the influx of animals during baby season. Last year alone we cared for 758 animals. Below are some ways you can help right now.

*Plumbing: we need an experienced plumber or company willing to donate their time and possibly supplies to install and repair our current water supply/waste lines.

*Bricklayer: we need a volunteer bricklayer to help us with the skirting around the building.

*Donations: All donations are tax deductible and 100% of your donations goes toward renovating the building because we are also 100% volunteer.

Thank you for supporting WWWRC. This truly takes a village and we can't do it without you.

We are an Official 501c3 Organization, which means your donation is a tax write-off. We have lots of updates. Electric is being installed this week. There is a wonderful Well Company that is going to donate their time and supplies to get the well up and running, and we still have several Boy Scout Projects and one Girl Scout Project in progress. However, our building funds are dwindling down and we need your help. We still have plumbing to run, siding for the outside, flooring is needed....and the list goes on. 100% of the donations for this campaign go toward the center. We have no paid employees, just volunteers. Please consider supporting us.

Siding is starting to go up. Yippeeee!! She no longer looks condemned. Thank you for the continued donations and support which allows us to buy materials for this big project. Remember, every little bit helps. A $25 donation buys a 4'x8' sheet of siding.

We need FRP Paneling or donations for FRP. It costs us $32.47 (Home Depot or Lowes) for a 4x8 sheet and we still need approx. 30 sheets. Of all of our building costs it takes up the most. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Regarding other projects inside the building. We have the Skunk, Raccoon, and isolation room halfway done. Most of the siding on the front of the building has been relaxed along with new windows. Things are moving along nicely. We also have a Boy Scout more than half way done with the Song Bird Room, a Girl Scout starting the Raptor Room on Saturday... This helps them with their Eagle and Gold Scout Projects and helps us tremendously.
