What's an Animal Life Center?

Crowe's Nest Farm is extremely proud to be one of the few organizations in the State that takes in, cares for, and provides a home for injured, abused, neglected, and unwanted animals and Texas wildlife. In fact, almost all of the animals at Crowe's Nest Farm are rescues! Our mission is in providing these unreleasable animals with the best life possible, while utilizing them to teach the public about conservation, preservation, and the importance wise animal stewardship.
