The animal sponsorships are a monthly gift of $5, $10 or $20 per month made in honour of one of our ambassadors. You can sponsor in your own name, or as a gift for someone else.

Sponsorship gifts support the work of the Care for Rescued Wildlife Program and help to care for all the rescued wildlife. In order to make sure that your gift has the greatest impact and helps the maximum number of animals, it will be used to support not only the individual care of your sponsored animal, but wherever it is needed most. 

Every sponsorship will receive a printable welcome pack and all subsequent updates, notifications and newsletters via email. This e-packet saves us money on printing and postage so every dollar you donate goes directly towards the animals’ care. 

Unfortunately not, think of it more like a community that together supports the rescued animals care. 

At our release station we do indeed intend to release the animals back into the wild for a second chance. For these ambassador animals we will likely track them and can continue to provide some updates. Joa the great hornbill, for example, has lived freely around the station ever since he had enough feathers, he hasn’t flown away yet, so we can still provide updates on his antics. Of course sometimes animals may pass away unexpectedly. In general we issue sponsorships only for animals who are not elderly and not likely candidates for adoption. However, in the event of death or release we’ll make every effort to notify you as soon as possible, and give you the option of transferring your sponsorship to a different animal, continuing with the new species ambassador or ending it.

We strive to issue them within 3 days, but at peak times it may be longer. If you have a need for quicker service please let us know in the comments box and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

We ask for a minimum of a 12-month commitment. A lot of work and effort goes into our sponsorship program, and it is not feasible to offer shorter terms.

Of course. Please contact us on the email below.
