1)  In which types of rescue do you participate?

We are licensed by the State of Texas for rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife.  Every year we take in injured or orphaned squirrels, cottontails, wild birds, deer, possum, raccoon, etc.  We rehabilitate them and release them when they are strong enough to live on their own.  We also participate in domestic rescue, rescuing pet birds, cats and dogs, and even horses.   

2) Do you accept donations?

Yes!  Rescuing and rehabilitating animals is a costly endeavor.  We spend lots each year buying food, formula, linens, caging, paying for surgeries, etc.    Unfortunately, I have never received a reimbursement check from a squirrel!  Donations help offset some of our expense.   We also lovingly accept donations of cages, kennels, caging material, heating pads, towels, bandages, formula, clean pine shavings, etc.  Your donation is tax deductible.  

You can send donations to:
SAVE THE ANIMALS PROJECT                       
PO BOX 754                       
Pflugerville, Texas 78691-0754

​Or, you can paypal your donation to 

3)  Are there other ways I can help?

Yes!  Volunteer to be a foster for a dog or cat in need.  Volunteer to walk dogs at the shelter.  This helps them retain their socialization, stretch their legs, and get fresh air.   Adopt your next dog or cat instead of buying it from a breeder or pet store.  There are thousands of purebred dogs and cats available.  In fact, there are literally hundreds of breed-specific rescue groups. If your heart is open to a mutt, they have their definite advantages also! If you have a dog or cat, please spay or neuter it.  This is a tremendous help to prevent unwanted dogs and cats from being born.  Most of the animals in the shelter come from backyard breeders and/or people who want to have "just one litter".  You can also register at and list "SAVE THE ANIMALS PROJECT" as your chosen charity.  You can shop with over 600 retailers and we will get a percentage of your online purchases at NO COST to you. 

4) Can you help me find a home for my dog/cat/bird? 

​Yes, we can help.  Please contact us at  so we can figure out the best placement possibilities.  

5) I found a baby (squirrel, possum, etc). Can you help me?

Yes.  But if possible, please call us before removing the baby from the location where you found it.  Many babies are removed from the nest by people who are trying to "do the right thing".  Wildlife mothers leave the nest for MANY HOURS to forage for food, etc.  The baby's chance for survival is much greater if it is raised in the wild.   We can discuss the circumstances and decide the best course of action together.
