Mission Statement


Austin Wildlife Rescue rehabilitates and releases orphaned, sick, and injured wild animals and educates the public to coexist with wildlife.

What We Do

Austin Wildlife Rescue serves the citizens and wildlife of Central Texas by providing direct assistance to the public concerning questions, problems, and conflicts with native wildlife. Austin Wildlife Rescue accomplishes this mission by:

  1. Training staff to operate a telephone hotline in order to assist with wildlife inquiries from the public;

  2. Supporting qualified rehabilitators to provide quality care to orphaned and injured wildlife until they can be returned to their native habitat; and

  3. Providing educational programs designed to eliminate or mitigate conflicts between humans and wildlife.
