Headquartered in Texas, United States, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Inc. (WWR) is a non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates thousands of wild animals every year. The organization also provides a permanent sanctuary for hundreds of domesticated farm animals, non-native wildlife and non-releasable indigenous animals.
The Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation’s mission is to rescue wildlife to rehabilitate and release them back into the wild and also to provide permanent care and sanctuary to other animals in need. The organization’s vision is that humans will realize that we are all part of a life community and develop the necessary respect for the community as well as the compassion needed to relate to it.
The Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation supports the following causes:
Founded in 1977 in Texas, United States, the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation mainly operates from a 212-acre property in Kendalia. It began as the vision of Lynn Cuny who saw many animals suffering and dying when not receiving the help they need. Cuny started the organization in her backyard. By 1980 the demand for her services had grown so much that the organization had to be moved to a four-acre site. In 1986, it once again became necessary to move and Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation set up on a 21-acre site. In 1999, a benefactor made it possible for the organization to finally purchase a 187-acre area in the Texas Hill Country nearby San Antonio. After raising funds for several years, the facility was constructed and they could move in. In 2013/2014 another 25-acres were added to the facility making it a total of 212 acres.
