While working at the Hostital in Conroe,Texas, I was fortunate to meet 2 of the original members of Friends of Texas Wildlife. I joined 5 years ago, and have never regretted one second of the time, money, and commitment this group of dedicated individuals give to our wonderful animals. I am awaiting inspection for my permit to work with mammals. Joan Blum, Janette Winklemann, Evelyn Hyde surely saved my life for the purpose of working with these precious creatures. I have seen many miracles roked by the above mentioned and mant more of the members. Most of us have full time jobs, and still find the time, energy to give back to our community with educational programs so that our great,great,... will be able to live in harmony with Mother Nature, and share the what is left of the areas these 'critters' call home. Even though our resources are small, we continue to try to support the care of the animals, and try to find resources for a much needed intake center. Sincerely, Dana Lynch, Proud Member of Friends of Texas Wildlife.

The purpose of this wonderful organization is two-fold: one is to rehabilitate orphaned and injured wildlife and release them back into the wild and secondly, to educate children and adults on how to live harmoniously with wildlife which is becoming increasingly more difficult due to urban sprawl. This all-volunteer organization receives no State or Federal funding and relies solely on donations to care for the animals they take in. One might think it's fun to be able to play and cuddle with these furry creatures and occasionally it is, but more often than not they are dealing with malnourished and/or severly injured animals. Often times the heart-wrenching decision has to be made to put the animal "down" because it's injuries are too severe to sustain life. But the greatest joy is when they've taken a 2-day old fawn with a broken leg, nursed it and cared for it for months and then are able to release it to live out the rest of it's life in it's natural habitat. There's no greater joy.

I am Donna Schulze and have been involved with Friends Of Texas Wildlife for more than 5 years. My involment has included fund raising, marketing as well as working with the fawns & squirrles. The unreal love andtotal dedication this group provides for injured & abandon wildlife is above and beyond expecations. They forgo families & all personel time to simply try and, fix what mankind has done to these animals. I am honored to be a part of this group that dedicates so much time to the care & saving of wildlife. Also the huge effort to do public education on how to live with nature in a respectful manner.

The Great!

January 2, 2010 Friends of Texas Wildlife I’m so glad I found your organization to help with two abandoned animals found in my yard in 2009. The first was a fawn, probably 2-3 days old, which had obviously been abandoned. It was very weak and we didn’t know how to save it. After much searching and contacting veterinarians, Friends of Texas Wildlife was recommended to us. I contacted Janette Winkelmann who immediately guided me in the fawn’s care. First, I returned it to the site where it was found, and observed it for many hours into the night to ensure the mother didn’t return. After that, we put the deer in a pet carrier and took it to her house where, finding it very dehydrated, Janette immediately started care. The fawn was named Patsy and I’m happy to say that, after many months care, she was released into the wild. The second animal I caught was a young raccoon that I had observed for days trying to join another mother and babies with no success. It was scared, hungry, and in urgent need of attention. Once again, Janette came to the rescue and took “Patrick” in for care. After being in quarantine for a few weeks, getting his shots, and being fed the correct foods, he joined the family of other young raccoons in care. Another success story, as he was later released when a big, healthy animal. I’ve met so many of the rehabbers with Friends of Texas Wildlife who spend hours a day and night caring for injured and abandoned wildlife. With no reimbursement for their expenses, theirs is definitely a gift of love. I am happy to support them. Best wishes, Patricia Riedel

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way the abandoned animals we found were taken in, recuperated and eventually released. Seen injured and starving animals giving loving care for months at a time, to be fully healthy before release.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caring people who volunteer with the group. The rehabbers spend hours each day taking care of the needy animals - mainly at their own expense. They get together and compare notes and help one another learn how to care for each animal

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

No staff exist, only volunteers. I've never seen such a dedicated, caring group of people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have an intake center to make it easier to receive animals in need, not have the rehabbers spend so much out of their own pocket, expand to help hundreds more animals.
