Our Mission

Believing all life is precious, Wildlife Rescue rehabilitates and releases orphaned, sick, or injured wild animals and educates the public to coexist with wildlife.

Wildlife Rescue, Inc.

Wildlife Rescue, Inc. 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. Wildlife Rescue 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 6,000 wild animals are cared for each year. Our Intake Center is open to the public for drop offs and the Wildlife Rescue telephone hotline is answered daily to assist with your questions about local wildlife.

Wildlife Rescue is an intake center only. We are open for drop offs 9am-4pm daily but we cannot pick up animals.
