Your money can save lives


We depend on donations to fund our work.  Your donations enable us to rescue and rehabilitate thousands of animals every year, while our education programmes reach many young people and adults.

It costs over $1 million per year to operate our service Otago community. We receive no Government or local body funding and rely upon the generosity of the community to continue our ‘life saving’ work.  Your support helps us to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome, thousands of animals every year.
