Core Values


The Houston Humane Society Wildlife Center provides a community for people who are dedicated to Texas wildlife. We value and care about each other and work to inspire, challenge and support our fellow wildlife caregivers. We aspire to a level of professionalism in everything we do.


We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all living things. We value the life 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.


The staff and volunteers of HHS Wildlife Center strive to develop future leaders in the wildlife field. Through our work with the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the USA, and local colleges, we actively seek out and then train tomorrow’s wildlife workers. By sharing our enthusiasm for conserving Texas wildlife, we establish bold visions and purposefulness in the next generation.


Through our outreach programs and educational partnerships, we aim to help the public understand the importance of conservation and gain an appreciation of Texas wildlife. We are committed to educating the public to encourage people to coexist with the wild animals who share our cities.


In September of 2022, TWRC merged with the Houston Humane Society to become the Houston Humane Society Wildlife Center (HHSWC). The merger allows the Wildlife Center to expand our services while continuing our mission to promote environmental conservation through public education and rehabilitation of Texas Wildlife.

Our Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Department provide care to native and migratory birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles with the goal of release back into their native habitat.

Our Education Department offers guided interactions with the public that allow us to highlight environmental issues and concerns that impact both humans and the wildlife in their midst through high-quality programs, outreach events, scouting collaborations, festivals, and corporate gatherings.
