Friends of Texas Wildlife is a group of trained and permitted volunteers who provide care for injured, displaced and orphaned wildlife in Montgomery and North Harris Counties. We support the rehabilitation of native Texas wildlife and promote co-existence of wildlife and people through education.
We are the only wildlife rescue group based in Montgomery County with rehabbers permitted by U.S. Fish & Wildlife and Texas Parks & Wildlife Departments. We receive no money from either of these organizations. Our ability to care for the thousands of animals we receive each year depends is entirely dependent on donations, membership, and money raised at our fundraisers. And all of our money goes back into the local community.
Many of the animals Friends of Texas Wildlife receives are malnourished, sick or morbidly injured requiring immediate veterinary care to survive. Rehabbers provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Rehabbers frequently pay for care and vet bills out of their own pockets. During 2006, seven rehabbers cared for more than 875 animals; in 2007, approximately 1000 animals were cared for; and in 2011 we cared for almost 2000 animals.
Friends of Texas Wildlife is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; 100% of all donations support native Texas wildlife and are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
In addition to caring for wildlife, Friends of Texas Wildlife offers educational and awareness programs.
