Orphaned monkey needs your help

Wildlife Rehabilitation in Guatemala

Help sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in central Guatemala.

This Wildlife Rescue Centre was originally created for a very specific and urgent purpose: to build a rescue center to care for and rehabilitate wild animals that were being confiscated on the black market by the Guatemalan government. Over the years it has grown into one of the largest and most complex rescue centres in the world. Each year it admits over 500 animals representing more than 40 species of wildlife.


Dog Rescue in Mexico

Help with dog and cat rescue, adoption and public education in Mexico. 

Street dogs and cats are a worldwide problem. Many of these dogs and cats are born on the streets, while others are abandoned pets, or pets that are permitted to roam free. In Mexico hundreds of thousands of animals are estimated to be homeless. These animals fight to survive, living on the edge of society. They are often starving, sick or injured, facing countless health challenges.

Wildlife Rehabilitation in Indonesia

Help care for wildlife rescued in Indonesia.

Our partner centre is strategically located in Indonesia where it can tackle the cross-border trade. This sustainably-run rescue centre allows authorities to enforce wildlife laws, carry out their raids and confiscate live animals. These animals are offered care and rehabilitation, with the hope of being able to release them back into the wild. Those animals that cannot be released are provided long-term care at the centre. Our partner also supports the protection of wildlife and their habitats through education and advocacy.
