Wildlife Interaction

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. The Boerne Animal Shelter is not equipped to care for wildlife commonly found in our community, as such, we partner with Kendalia Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation.

Our partners at the Kendalia Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation have compiled some great resources that can help you if you stumble upon unattended or injured wildlife and provide tips to prevent them from entering your home.

We need to remember that our daily life requires respect and awareness towards deer and various native wildlife that were here long before us. The best thing a person can do it to leave wildlife alone and call Animal Care Services or Kendalia Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation at (830) 336-2725.
