Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We provide a help line 7 am to 10 pm 365 days per year for the Dallas Fort Worth greater metro-plex. The help line educates and provides humane solutions to urban wildlife conflicts. We provide referrals to local rehabilitators when the animal is truly orphaned or injured. We counsel the public on how to reunify wildlife that they may have discovered and thought needed to be rescued, otherwise we help to prevent kidnapping of young wildlife by the uninformed public. We work with local animal agencies regarding urban wildlife. We currently operate with 100% volunteer base with a virtual wildlife hotline/help line. We receive approximately 15,000 calls per year. Each call will be at least one wild animal and many times several wild animals such as a mother duck and 12 ducklings in a homeowners pool. We do help out of state callers when they call for assistance. We collaborate with local permitted rehabilitators and animal agencies.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to educate the public and to reduce the fear of public, regarding our urban wildlife. We educate the public on alternative solutions to trapping and killing/relocating wildlife as it is not an effective solution for the human wildlife conflict in our cities. Through education we can reduce the orphaning of wildlife that is admitted to wildlife centers/rehabilitators. We provide referrals to home based permitted wildlife professionals which gets wildlife out of the hands of the public.

Provide a help line from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. 365 days per year. With each phone call we educate the public and provide the assistance they require therefore reducing human wildlife conflict, orphaning of wildlife, and providing education to remove fears of the public.

A track record of providing help for 16 years. A committed volunteer base of 50 individuals.

In 2003 we received 300 calls, we receive 15,000 calls/year, 15 years later. We have created a collaboration of organizations and individuals to work together. We have educated animal control agencies and have succeeded in reducing the euthanasia of our Texas native wildlife, that previously were killed for no other reason than the public trapped the animal. Now the animal control agencies are not lending traps and are relocating and releasing public trapped wildlife when appropriate. With animal control agencies agreeing to not promote trapping we have actually helped them reduce the cost associated with trapping for each city. We were responsible for birthing the first Humane wildlife exclusion company in the DFW area, which is a separate business/corporation. We have saved thousands of Texas wildlife in our urban cities. We educate the public one person at a time, which becomes a meaningful experience for all.
