Our Awareness Centre generates income for some of the expenses, We accept injured and abandoned wild animals from all over the Garden Route, and no fee is ever asked from anyone. We receive no government funding or subsidy.

Supply & install a Metal or porcelain Wash basin in the hospital
An ‘Autoclave’ which sterilises instruments by steam
A fridge so we can keep all our vegetables and defrosted meat cool to prevent it from going off...
A walk in refrigerator for the meat for the animals
Infrared lamp bulbs
Setting up a wash station area for oiled penguins
Heavy duty rain gear / oilskins for Penguin feeding
Waders (like for fly fishing) to rescue birds out of boggy areas
Stainless steel operating table
A Theatre light or a free standing spot light
We are always in need of Consumables such as -
Mops, squeegees, brooms, hot water bottles, towels, polar fleece baby blankets, blankets, dish washing liquid, sterilizing hand wash liquid & cream, tile cleaner, large kitchen scissors, knives, cotton wool, swabs, sponges, rubber gloves, mutton cloth, teff hay & oats straw for bedding
Office supplies such as pens, rulers, erasers, high lighters, staples, white board markers and paper so we can keep all the animals records up to date...
Tins of ‘Fancy Feast’ tinned cat soft food – we use this extensively to encourage feeding on recuperating animals
