Resembling a cross between a mongoose and a small leopard, genets have a spotted coat like the leopard but the small, sleek body of the mongoose.
Genets have a scent gland that can be described as being “skunk like” in that when an animal is injured or startled they can release an unpleasant odor that has a similar result to the more powerful scent glands of skunks.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
