Clinic receives its 500th patient

On July 20th, BPRC received patient number 500. This Red-tailed Hawk was emaciated, dehydrated and not very responsive. He is eating well now and much more active! Due to word of mouth in Dallas/Fort Worth and the surrounding counties BPRC is becoming known as the place to take sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey. We appreciate all the help of local animal services, the public and other rehabilitators in caring for the raptors of north Texas. There are many ways you can help BPRC continue to expand its coverage and capabilities including volunteering and donations. Click on the Donate now button to help care for one of our patients or email us at if you are interested in volunteering.
