The Wildlife Center at Crosstimbers Ranch (WCCR) opened it's doors in August of 2008 as a native Texas species Wildlife Rescue. WCCR is a facility with the capacity to handle large numbers of bobcats. The intention was to create the National Bobcat Rescue and Research Foundation (NBRR). The ultimate goal of this foundation is to build the National Bobcat Rescue & Research Institute dedicated to this very special predatory cat.
The National Bobcat Rescue & Research Foundation is subsidiary of the Wildlife Center at Crosstimbers Ranch (WCCR). WCCR has specialized in Bobcats for many years. The lack of research available on wild Urban Felis Rufis disease and urban occurence inspired the WCCR Board to dedicate a portion of their efforts to this amazing and highly elusive animal. The goal is to develop a separate facility where these cats may be watched and studied at a distance while in temporary captivity and then followed when re-released to the wild by scientists and students all over the world.
