CTX Wildlife Rehab needs volunteers

LORENA, TX (KXXV) -

A Central Texas nonprofit, Wildlife Rehab Lorena, that helps orphaned or injured animals, needs more volunteers to help them.

The rehab facility houses about 60 animals at a time, including skunks, raccoons, birds, deer and chickens. They rehabilitate the animals to release them back into the wild.

Rachel Sine started the facility about three years ago after retiring from the Air Force.

"I was looking for a place to volunteer and do something with my time," Sine said. "I wanted a cause to get into. I started calling around and I got a hold of two rehabbers."

Sine said the facility has grown and so has the amount of work.

She and other volunteers work around the clock to feed, clean, take in and release animals. This week they are feeding baby skunks and squirrels. 

"We just always need help. It's more than one or four people can take care of in a day," Sine said.

The facility also has a wish-list they accept donations for.

"If scooping poop isn't your thing, then maybe you want to help with the t-shirts or something like that. We need the help," Sine said.

Sine said they are looking for adult volunteers who love animals and are ready to work. The facility needs help with feeding, cleaning and more.

If you would like to help or donate any items, call Rachel Sine at (505) 715-9167 or Shelly Hewitt at (254) 394-4998 to set up a time. The wildlife facility asks that you call ahead and do not just show up.
