Big Country Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is located in the heart of the Big Country of Texas. Our organization was founded by Jennifer Kleinpeter BSN, RN, in 2021, after discovering the need for a legal facility for wildlife to be referred to for care. Our goal is to release every animal back in the wild and for our community to learn to coexist safely with our native wildlife through community outreach and education.
Community help allows us to continue wildlife rescue, community outreach, and educational programs. This allows our community to learn the important role of wildlife in our environment. With the loss of their habitat increasing, it is vital for the health and sustainability of our world that we all learn to coexist safely together for future generations to come.
We attempt to reunite orphans with their mothers first before they are brought to the wildlife rescue for care, raising, and medical treatment. Mothers always know best. Never kidnap wildlife. Contact the rescue if you have found a wild animal in need. If baby is an orphan it is brought to rescue for care and rehabilitation.
After a successful rehabilitation our animals are released back in their wild and natural habitat as nature intended. After all, it is our wildlife who maintain a healthy ecosystem for all living things.
