FRIENDS OF TEXAS WILDLIFE
April 14, 2010

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.

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

open an intake center. This would allow them to help so many more animals!
