Picture 1

So the crew had the good sense to pack it up and move on before I signed on with Wildlife Rescue last year for a short stint, which means this here reality stitch may have a shot at offering good, clean, family fun...

Here's the release:

Life at Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation (WRR) in Kendalia, Texas. is the subject of Animal Planet's 13-episode series, My New Wild Life, which will preview with two episodes on Sunday, May 25 and June 1, 2008, at 6:00 a.m. Central (7:00 a.m. Eastern/Pacific). This series takes a close look at wildlife, their too-often debilitating encounters with humans, and the compassionate people who nurse them back to health.

WRR rescues, rehabilitates, and releases orphaned, injured, and displaced wild animals and provides sanctuary with dignity for non-releasable and non-native wildlife. The Texas Hill Country facility consists of a rehabilitation clinic and nursery, a 200-acre sanctuary grounds with the staff, interns, and volunteers to provide round-the-clock care for the thousands of domesticated and wild animals needing help.

New Interns Kirsten and Jordan experienced the joys and sorrows of caring for wild and domesticated animals at the WRR sanctuary. During their 8-week tenure, they learned to feed orphaned infant mammals, care for primates in sanctuary, and tend to the farmed animals in the Do No Harm Farm. The new interns learned firsthand what it truly takes to be an animal caretaker.

The administration, staff, and interns at Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation thoroughly enjoyed their experience working on My New Wild Life. It helped us to look at our life's work through fresh eyes and truly appreciate what this organization is able to do for thousands of animals each year. The production crew from Painless Productions was talented, professional, and fun to be around, and we were honored to have a part in Animal Planet's programming.

If you have always wondered what it would be like to spend your days and nights caring for animals in need, tune in to My New Wild Life — a behind-the-scenes look at a true wildlife sanctuary and rehabilitation facility.
