        South Plains Wildlife 

Rehabilitation Center, Inc.

Caring for Wildlife Since 1988

South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Inc. is in its 34th year of operation! 

SPWRC is the equivalent of a hospital for wildlife, therefore, 

our facilities are not open to the public. 

 SPWRC is now booking Environmental Education Programs!

Our goal is to release a recuperated animal back to its natural, appropriate habitat whenever possible.

Fledgling Blue Jays raised from nestlings are gradually released back into the wild. Back-up feeding is provided as long as youngsters return for handouts. This may be days or weeks, depending on the species, and how long it takes an individual to perfect their hunting or foraging skills.

A Northern Mockingbird youngster out of the cage for a taste of the outside world. Many wildlife rehabilitators "keep" their baby birds much too long. They should be released while they are still dependent on the caregiver for food - this assures they will return periodically, and their progress can be monitored. They often return to the safety of the cage at dusk or find a safe place to roost for the night. Be sure there are five days of good weather so the youngsters can acclimate.
