The Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital recently launched its first online store which will be used to raise much-needed funds for the animals.


Johannesburg, South Africa (05 October 2020) – The Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital has done incredible work for the wildlife of South Africa. They treat all indigenous wildlife free of charge to ensure they receive the best care. That takes a toll on their finances, so the hospital regularly raises fund to cover its costs.

Over the years, the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital has saved thousands of little lives, all thanks to the donations from the public. Aside from the donations, the hospital was given the opportunity to create their own Relate Bracelets.

Their two bracelets are blue and bronze. The blue bracelet with the heart logo bead represents the hospital, and the proceeds of each bracelet sold benefit the hospital. The bronze bracelet was created especially to raise funds for their Temminck’s ground pangolin patients.

These along with a collection of other wildlife-related items are now being sold by the hospital on their brand new online store. The store was launched to help them raise funds to continue the incredible work they do.

“We have an ONLINE SHOP! What better day to launch our brand new online store than on WORLD ANIMAL DAY. We are so pleased to announce that ordering items from us has just become a little bit easier:”

With our recommendation to support local, small-scale businesses by purchasing Christmas gifts for your loved ones, this store is the perfect option for animal-lovers out there.
