Do you live in the greater Houston Area? Are you interested in becoming a home-based rehabilitator? TWRC can get you started!

TWRC is holding free Home-Based Rehabilitation 101 informational sessions that will help you decide whether rehabbing is right for you and which species will fit in to your lifestyle. You will learn about:

  • The process of becoming a rehabber with TWRC
  • Benefits of rehabbing with TWRC
  • The permitting process and some of the laws associated with rehabbing
  • The mentor/sub-permittee relationship
  • TWRC animal admission process & record keeping
  • Supplies needed
  • Outdoor caging
  • Overview of each species including basic facts, costs associated with rehabbing and time commitment required

Please note: This informational session will not cover information such as diet and care instructions for rehabbing animals at home. That information will be learned when earning the required volunteer hours and will also be provided by your mentor.

If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP by contacting Liz Compton at [email protected]
