Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition

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.

Did You Find a BABY Songbird or Dove?

Check Out Our Latest Video!

In many cases, found baby birds are healthy and simply need to be reunited with the parents. If you have found a baby bird, please watch this YouTube video before calling us. This video will help you to determine whether you should attempt to reunite the bird with its parents and if so, will give you instructions on how to do so.  If, after watching the video, you determine that the bird needs to be brought to a wildlife center (or if you tried reuniting and were not successful), follow the temporary care instructions in the video and give us a call at 713-468-8972 to schedule a drop off appointment.

HPAI has reached Texas

“Due to the outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) our admissions for some bird species have changed.”
