Since 1979, TWRC Wildlife Center has been committed to providing quality emergency care and rehabilitation for injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife brought to us by the public. Through education and engaging the public in wildlife-care programs, TWRC continues to make a difference for urban wildlife threatened by loss of habitat.
At Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (TWRC) we believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all living things. We value the lives of every animal that enters our care and vow to treat each animal humanely and with respect and compassion. Although our goal is to release all animals back to the wild, we hold ourselves accountable to do what is best for each individual animal.
Through our outreach programs we aim to help the public understand the importance of conservation and to gain an appreciation of native Texas wildlife. We are committed to educating the public about wildlife as a means to encourage people to coexist with the wild animals who share our environment.
TWRC provides a community for people who are dedicated to Texas wildlife. We value and care about each other - working to inspire, challenge and support our fellow wildlife caregivers. Although many of us are volunteers, we aspire to a level of professionalism in everything we do.
The staff and volunteers of TWRC strive to develop future leaders in the wildlife field. Through our work with the Boy and Girl scouts and local colleges, we actively seek out and then train tomorrow’s wildlife workers. By openly showing our enthusiasm for conserving native Texas wildlife, we establish bold visions and purposefulness in the next generation.
