Austin Wildlife Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife in the Austin area. We have been a proud Central Texas tradition since 1977. AWR started as a small group of concerned individuals from diverse backgrounds with a common interest in providing experienced care for wildlife.
From the small core of individuals, Wildlife Rescue has grown into a widespread network of licensed rehabilitators, trained staff members, and dedicated volunteers. Over 7,000 wild animals are cared for each year. Our Intake Center and Rehabilitation Center are open to the public for drop-offs and the Austin Wildlife Rescue telephone hotline is answered daily to assist with your questions about local wildlife.
