The Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital is celebrating its 4th birthday and surviving the lockdowns during the pandemic.
Johannesburg, South Africa (16 March 2021) – Happy birthday to the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital. They are celebrating their 4th year since opening their doors, and so many lives have been saved.
In the last 4 years, the wildlife vet specialising in caring for smaller indigenous wildlife has become experts in saving and rehabilitating pangolins. They have raised Aardwolves, rehabilitated porcupettes, stitched up snakes, taught us about mole rats and every tiny creature under our African sun.
Each animal that is brought in has a story worth sharing, from being abandoned or falling out of a tree to being caught in snares and rescued from poachers.
The wildlife vet has created a platform that raises awareness for these animals and provides education to the public about the dangers of poaching.
“This birthday we celebrate not only that our doors have been open for FOUR years, but also that we have made it through a year of the Covid pandemic and nationwide lockdowns. As a non-profit, we rely on donations to keep our doors open, and every cent counts!
Wildlife rescue is hard work. It takes long hours of feeding, cleaning and treating patients. The general day to day running of our hospital is overseen by a small team of staff that work overtime to ensure that every patient is getting the best care.
In order to do this, we need funding – being a non-profit facility we do not receive any money from the government. Please consider a “birthday gift” of a monthly debit order toward our running costs. With over 30 000 followers on our page, together we can make a massive difference!”
The Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital treats indigenous for free, so they rely on donations to keep doing the good work they do. Below are the various payment options for the Wildlife Vet; they rely on donations, so if you can, you can donate through the methods below.
