Donations Needed!

Donations Needed!

We have been very busy with the rescue over the last 13 months. We took in over 650 animals in 2017 and have already taken in over 215 animals so far in 2018. Our intake numbers are up, but our donations are less than half what they were this time last year. Please consider donating to help care for the animals. We currently have 19 squirrels, 5 opossums, 4 cottontails, a baby fox, 10 birds of prey and over 50 snakes, lizards and amphibians we are caring for, not including all the education animals. We are spending $600 on food for birds of prey every 2-3 months and I just ordered $200 worth of formula for the baby mammals. We are a 501(c)(3) and 100% of the money donated goes directly to animal care.

As always, we thank you for your continued support.

Honored and Humbled: NWRA Award

Honored and Humbled: NWRA Award

We were very honored, and shocked, to learn that we had been nominated for, and received the 2018 National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association Marlys J. Bulander “Working Together for Wildlife Award” for our work during hurricane Harvey.
Our work during that time would not have been possible without our wonderful friends and supporters. Three trips to south Texas, lots of supplies, lots of late nights working on feeding babies.
A huge thank you goes out to everybody. We could not do what we do without your support!

Fox Squirrel Dreaming

This is one of our baby fox squirrels that we have had since it was less than a week old. What do you think this little one is dreaming about?

American Crow

American Crow

American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) that came into the rescue this weekend. Possible broken wing, dehydrated, and a little thin.

Very cool species of bird that will eat almost anything. From fruits and seeds, to insects, small lizards, eggs, and even other birds.

The origin of placing scarecrows in grain fields resulted from the crow’s incessant damaging and scavenging, although crows assist farmers by eating insects otherwise attracted to their crops.
These guys do pack one heck of a bite and have nice strong toes.

We are super excited to announce that we are now permitted by the state of Texas to take in small mammals and bats. And as things always seem to work out, day after we got our official notice, we took in two baby squirrels and yesterday we took in 6 baby opossums!

One thing to help ensure the health of these babies is proper temperatures. An incubator designed for babies is a must. Keeping baby animals warm can be the difference between life and death — just one incubator can save the lives of hundreds of animals. Baby Warm is helping us get a lifesaving incubator for the baby animals in our care. There are two ways you can help us: make a tax-deductible donation and share this link. Even if you cannot donate, please share the link to your wall. The more people we reach, the quicker this can happen. We only have 30 days to reach our goal. We continue to do what we do through the generous help of our followers and dedicated volunteer team. Thank you for all your support! http://www.babywarm.org/projects/brandi-n/
