In order for the FreeMe Wildlife rehabilitation centre to remain sustainable, render the expert care for which it is renowned, and expand in line with the growing demand for the rehabilitation of wildlife strategic initiatives, partnerships and donations are critical.
We receive donations in many ways including those special members of the public who rescue an animal in need of our care and bring it to our centre at Paulshof, all of whom give of their time and fuel costs but many who also make a cash donation whilst delivering their rescued animal.
In May and June we received 112 donations linked to such admissions ranging from R10 (some lovely people jump into the car and rush their rescued animal to us without even picking up their hand bag or wallet and contribute the “parking change” they have in the car door pocket) to an exceptional R 1000.
Every single donation is appreciated, that R10 change for example will feed and treat a Mouse Bird for a day which is a life saver for that little bird. Like all super heroes many of these donors are a little shy so we have listed them by first name and initial – you know who you are!
