twrc-membershipYour tax-deductible membership will help cover the growing cost of keeping our doors open. TWRC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, not a government agency nor are we funded by any city, county, state or federal office.

TWRC is primarily supported by individuals like YOU, who care about wildlife and who want to make a difference in their lives.

Since 1979, TWRC Wildlife Center has supported wildlife in Houston and its surrounding areas, through rehabilitation and educational outreach. Over 5,000 wild animals came through our doors in 2015 and your membership TODAY will ensure that as many as possible, return back to the wild where they belong.
