    Detailed Information:
    Because of our commitment to respect for the rights and needs of wildlife, WRR is not open to the public.Our HistoryWRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas, by Lynn Cuny, and was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 1978. Since Spring 2004, WRR has been located at a new 187-acre facility near Kendalia, Texas. WRR serves the cities of San Antonio, Austin, and all surrounding counties, as well as the entire state of Texas. WRR also provides assistance on a national basis to wild animals in need of rescue. WRR is widely recognized as a superior rehabilitation and sanctuary facility and is accredited by The Association of Sanctuaries (TAOS). It provides a permanent home for a variety of mammals (e.g., wolves, bears, big cats, and primates) and and non-indigenous birds and reptiles. Each year over 5,000 animals are brought to WRR, mostly from surrounding areas, but many from around the country; the majority of these were rehabilitated and released or given permanent sanctuary. WRR maintains a 24-hour Emergency Hotline and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is supported by a membership of over 11,000 individuals and is assisted by 150 Volunteers. The organization has a Staff of 20 and anywhere from 8 to 15 Animal Care Interns who come from the U.S. and abroad to work at the Sanctuary and gain experience and training in wildlife rehabilitation and animal care.In addition, WRR provides advice and assistance in dealing with human-wildlife encounters in a non-lethal manner. Whether through training, education, advocacy, or direct animal care, WRR fulfills its commitment to wildlife protection and ethical, sustainable relations between humans and the natural world. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Watch a Video About WRR's Work
