WOUNDED WILDLIFE? WHO DO I CALL?

CINCO RANCH RESIDENTS DO YOU HAVE THIS PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR CELL PHONE?

HOW TO CONTACT WILDLIFE REHABILITATORS IN OUR AREA

Two phone numbers suggested you save in your cell phone are the nonemergency Harris County precinct 5 Constables and Fort Bend County Sheriff’s numbers. 911 should always be used in case of an emergency, but many times we need to contact the Sheriff’s Department and need to do so quickly. Don’t hesitate to call the Sheriff’s Department if something in your neighborhood seems questionable. This will give our contract deputies probable cause to investigate. This would include suspicious vehicles (vehicles exhibiting unsafe or erratic driving behavior), suspicious persons or behavior, activity at you neighbors home when you know they are on vacation and anything else that may be out of the ordinary in your neighborhood. Don’t take a chance on you or your family’s safety.

Cinco Ranch Residents report wounded to the proper agency, Wildlife Rehabilitators.

Fort Bend County - Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Accepts: Mammals, birds, reptiles Location: Houston 713-861-WILD (9 AM - 6 pM); 713-643-WILD (after hrs.) Harris County - Texas Wildlife Rehab Coalition Accepts: Mammals, birds, reptiles

SHERIFF’S VACATION HOME WATCH

Vacation Can Be Great! Make sure you return home and feel great. If you are going on vacation, a business trip or just going away for the weekend, please put your house on a vacation watch list. It only takes a few minutes to inform local police that you are away from home. Take measures to secure your home and cars. Let your neighbors know that you will be away and when you plan to return. Inform neighbors and law enforcement if you plan on having maintenance services stop by while you are on vacation. It is advised that you have newspapers stopped, mail held and any advertisement left on your property picked up by someone. Keeping lawn mowed for a normal appearance to the property will look as if there is active occupancy. Taking preventative steps may deter vandals or thieves

Our primary mission is to rescue (from pounds and shelters) purebred (and a few mixed) dachshunds that end up alone, abandoned and/or abused and for many of them, it can be an 11th hour rescue. All of our rescued dachsies receive a complete health evaluation by our accredited veterinary clinics and are either spayed or neutered (if not already), given immunizations, dental care and are started on any necessary medical treatment(s). Our focus following rescue, is rehabilitation and relocation into a safe and loving foster home. These dachshunds are all in need of a second chance at life and simple basics like human affection, which they may have been without their entire little lives. And for that reason… We’re in desperate need of Foster Parents! As a foster parent, you’ll have the opportunity to help so many dogs. You’ll provide them a place to stay and be loved until they are healthy and strong enough to be adopted. Fostering is very rewarding, and the puppy kisses you’ll receive are priceless!
