Is it a bobcat?

Not sure if you have a bobcat in your back yard? Identifying a bobcat (especially a bobkitten!) can be very difficult. Check out our identifying a bobcat page to see if you have a bobcat on your hands.

They need us, we need you.

Everybody needs money to secure their food, water, and shelter. The basic necessities. Luckily for us humans we can choose to get up in the morning, or afternoon, and go to work. Unfortunately the animals we care for here at the ranch, who also need these things, are unable to pull in an income and depend upon us to take care of that for them. In fact, not only do they not go to work, they play all day! This is where you come in to the picture.

Working with these animals is beyond a full time job. As you can imagine feeding and watering wild bobcats can be a bit of a challenge, not to mention bedding changes ect. Where does this food come from? water? shelter? bedding? It comes from you. We provide the labor and some of the supplies, however we depend upon your help to provide the rest.

The main purpose of this article is to place emphasis on bare necessities. If you've got a little extra after your necesities are taken care of, why not give a little to help these cats get their's with maybe a little extra. Take a pass on that fast food meal? 8 bucks. That bag of chips? 5 bucks. Don't think you have to give big if you give, every little bit counts and is appreciated by these animals that are counting on you. Make a custom donation for amounts under $10 on our donation page. If you want to go crazy you can do that too.

Corporations, need a tax break through charitable donations? Yes, there are other more prominent and visible charities out there but we are local to the Dallas/Fort worth area. Why not help the one that relocates the wildlife in your own back yard. Fellow corporate citizen we would like to extend a hand and welcome your corporate sponsorship to help us hold the line between urban sprawl and the great outdoors as best as we can. The more sponsors we can get, the better we can help avoid unnecessary animal casualties and offer more temporary housing pending relocation.

Whether you give big, or give small, it's appreciated by us and the animals under our care.

Bobcats: A year round commitment!

It's always baby season with bobcats!  Here, in Texas, they breed year round.  As the babies continue to pour in, the food, baby formula, and vaccines flood out. This year will mark over 400 bobcats through our facility since our doors opened in 2008, with a guarantee of many more to come.  With our rapidly growing reputation, these cats are coming to us from all over the United States. Some of them are on the verge of death or gravely injured, while others just in a temporary shelter for assistance with relocation due to frightened misguided people who are trapping And removing them from their homes. One of our main objects at NBRR is to provide the general public with education about bobcats and why they have moved into our cities.  Before deciding to remove a bobcat from your property, please contact NBRR for advice and assistance with your situation

Please help us! Become a bobcat hero and make a one time donation, monthly donation or provide us with supplies from our wish list. All money and supplies go to the upkeep of these animals from the time they get here until the time they are released and are all tax deductible. Please consider us when trying to decide which charities you will donate to this year. Take a moment to browse our photo gallery or one of the many profiles we've made for some of our most honored guests while you decide.

Thank You,

NBRR Staff

“Cheeze”                         Did we spell it wrong?  No, Cheeze was originally a “Q” in the alphabet, so he was initially named “Queso”.   He was such a unique cat and his name just didn’t fit him. He was so funny and such a ham, that […]

 


  Help us understand and protect these beautiful animals and give the gift of life! Please help us by making your tax deductable donation today!
