Come find out how our urban lifestyle harms birds and other wildlife. Learn how to protect animals and what to do if you find an injured or orphaned bird or animal. You will have the opportunity to see animals – some that are being rehabilitated in order to release them back into the wild and some that, for several reasons, would not survive, if they were released.
Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a 501c3 nonprofit wildlife rescue organization in the Dallas/Fort-Worth metroplex specializing in the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick and orphaned birds of all types. Their goal is to restore the health and independence of these precious creatures so that they may be released back into their natural habitat. Rogers Wildlife serves as a sanctuary for the remaining birds, as they are deemed non-releasable due to the extent of their injuries.
Over the last decade, RWRC has provided medical treatment and care for more than forty thousand birds. The majority of birds that they receive come to them with life-threatening injuries as a result of animal attacks, nest displacement (orphaned), automobile strikes, natural/man-made disasters, or abuse. RWRC is entirely dependent on dedicated volunteers and private donations, as it does not receive any federal, state, or local government funding for its rehabilitation and conservation efforts.
The North Texas Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalist Program is a supporter of Rogers Wildlife. Members volunteered about 350 hours helping these animals in 2017.

This is not a fundraiser. For people who bring an injured/abandoned animal, a donation toward its rehabilitation is greatly needed.
