Your safety is of the utmost importance! If you have found a wild animal that needs help, remember - these are wild animals and will defend themselves. Further, if you cannot safely access the animal, reach out for help.
Stop and Assess: Remember not every wild animal you see actually needs help.
ANSWRR is NOT rehabilitating birds nor deer at this time. Please consult the Texas Parks and Wildlife website to find an appropriate rehabilitator. Rehabilitators are organized by county, and you can each rehabber's specialties. While wildlife should not be transported across state lines, they can cross county lines.
For specific bat-related inquiries, see Austin Bat Refuge.
While ANSWRR does not take in domestic animals (cats, dogs, livestock, etc), there are many area rescues that do. If in Austin, contact Austin Animal Center via 311. We also recommend searching online for an appropriate rescue for your specific animal.
