- Dial 940-565-2700, if you spot an animal or critter on campus that is in danger or may pose a threat to the campus community.
- Contact the Feral Cat Rescue Group, if you spot a feral cat on campus.
- If you or someone else is in need of immediate medical assistance or in a life-threatening situation, dial 911.
