This young squirrel came to us when he was only a few days old.  Eyes still closed, this poor baby fell 40 feet from his nest in a tree, and then laid on the wet, cold ground until someone heard his cries and picked him up.  His rescuer brought him to us at TWRC Wildlife Center (TWRC), knowing we have the expertise and the people to care for the infant, nurse him to health and, when he is old enough, release him in the wild to lead the kind of life squirrels are meant to have.  

Would you help us save babies like this squirrel, and help us care for other wild beings unable to survive without our care?  

TWRC Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1979, that serves the Greater Houston Area with the very best in emergency-medical and rehabilitative services for wildlife.  Last year we helped care for nearly 5000 wild animals brought to us by the public.  We work with veterinarians and trained volunteers to provide services such as anesthesia,
X-rays, pain control, wound treatment and administering medications to treat ill and injured wildlife.  We have onsite-care programs to provide temporary care until our home-based rehabilitators can take the orphaned and injured animals for further rehabilitation and release.  We also provide educational services to the community in the form of wildlife camps and outreach.  Our Center provides a place for the public to bring rescued wildlife for care and a hotline to call for advice with any wildlife concerns.  Our organization also provides free veterinary-medical services and discounted animal-care supplies for our members, who volunteer as permitted home-based rehabilitators; helping defray the large out-of-pocket expenses incurred by our rehabilitators.

In 2014 our operational expenses, including leasing our location, utilities, maintenance of our X-ray machine and other medical equipment, as well as food and supplies for the onsite-care programs, exceeded donations received by about $40,000 and, unless this shortfall can be made up in 2015, some services will have to be cut back or discontinued.

TWRC Wildlife Center receives no financial assistance from Federal, State or Local Governmental Agencies; relying solely on tax-deductible donations from private and corporate donors and charitable-giving foundations.  With our busiest season beginning, we do not want to turn away any animals in need, or be forced to cut back our community outreach or onsite volunteer opportunities. 

Please help us continue our mission:

“To promote environmental conservation through public education and rehabilitation of Texas wildlife”!

Dear Friends, Thank you so much for your donations and for sharing our GoFundMe site. TWRC has been here for Wildlife In Need for over 36 years with the support of the Greater-Houston community we serve. Our organization has been through some tough financial times lately as many of our corporate partners are facing tough times, and as you can imagine, the economic downturn has impacted our donations. Our admission desk has been VERY busy the past few days with our usual spring babies and now so many unexpected intakes from the historic Houston floods this week. Please consider a donation of any size to help TWRC keep our doors open for Wildlife in Need. Whether it is an orphaned baby bird, mammal or reptile, or a displaced or injured adult, TWRC is still dedicated to our mission to care for these animals who share our urban "habitat". Thank you so much for your generosity!

Many many thanks to our GoFundMe supporters! Our campaign is ongoing and every dollar makes a difference; allowing TWRC Wildlife Center to continue caring for wildlife. We have reached 5,000 Facebook likes and JUST IMAGINE if each fan gave just $10 on GoFundMe!!! That would allow us to continue all of our programs and take a huge burden off of our fundraising team. Please continue to share this TWRC Crowdfunding link on your social media pages!!!

Ive been volunteering as a rehabilitator with this organization for five years now, their integrity and professionalism always shines through. Without the support of this organization, I doubt I would be able to continue the work I do, the work I love. It is a really FUN place to volunteer also, like a big family. Please support TWRC wildlife center!
