About

Volunteers at TWRC Wildlife Center are the backbone of our organization. They supply the force behind our mission to rehabilitate, release and education the public. We are inspired by our volunteers’ devotion to the community responsibility of caring for our Texas wildlife. Since we started keeping records in 1992, our Center has helped more than 145,000 wild animals. Our volunteers have a very unique opportunity at TWRC. They get to be a part of an organization that established the first wildlife emergency facility in Houston, which has admitted over 392 different species. Over the years our seasoned volunteers and staff have acquired a great deal of knowledge and experience and are eager to share with individuals who want to join our mission to help wildlife. Volunteers leave here having the knowledge and ability to help any injured or orphaned wild animal they may encounter.
