Montgomery and surrounding counties possess striking natural beauty, unique biodiversity, globally important ecological resources, and numerous species of native wildlife. As Montgomery County and the surrounding areas continue to increase in human population, native wildlife is being forced to find new ways to survive. As wildlife lose more of their natural habitat, humans are increasingly encountering injured, ill, or orphaned wild animals - sometimes in their yards, sometimes on the side of the road.
Would you know what to do if this happens to you?
Call Friends of Texas Wildlife first at 281-259-0039 to determine if the animal is truly in need of help. Many normal behaviors of wildlife may be misinterpreted, resulting in a situation where the animal is actually being interfered with unnecessarily. Certain situations can also be handled successfully without coming into direct contact with the animal.
Contact one of our trained, permitted rehabbers.
