ANIMAL ACCEPTANCE GUIDELINES

Since our founding in 1979, we have had over 145,000 injured, orphaned, or ill wild animals pass through the hands of our caring volunteers. Species we frequently accept are squirrels, opossums, rabbits, raccoons, birds of prey, waterfowl, migratory birds, turtles, and snakes.  With fixed accommodations for wildlife, we must also regulate the number of non-native, invasive species we receive for care, giving priority placement to our native species. We are not able to care for the large amounts of these species we receive each year without tremendous impact to the care of our native species.

CALL AHEAD
Please review the list below to read more about the invasive species in our area and to be able to identify them accurately. We also recommend you call 713-468-8972 ahead to verify if we have room for your animal. If we have no openings, we will do our best to offer you a referral.
