Living With Wildlife
Boerne Animal Care Services is not equipped to care for wildlife commonly found in our community. As such, we partner with Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in Kendalia. Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation has compiled great resources that can help you if you stumble upon unattended or injured wildlife and provide tips to prevent them from entering your home.
Who To Contact
Daily life requires respect and awareness toward deer and various native wildlife that were here long before us. It is best to leave wildlife alone. If you are concerned about a potentially dangerous animal or find injured wildlife, please call one of the following:
- Boerne Animal Care Services: (830) 249-2456
- Kendalia Wildlife Rescue: (830) 336-2801
- Texas Parks and Wildlife: (210) 688-6444
The Boerne ACS does respond to service requests regarding sick or injured wildlife and those that may pose a threat to public safety. We do not trap apparently healthy wildlife that do not pose a threat.
Living in the Texas Hill Country means cohabitating with creatures that live right outside our homes. From deer to raccoons, porcupines, skunks, and opossums, we have no shortage of wildlife with more than 100 species of mammals, birds, and reptiles calling our area home.
