Sydney Wildlife Mobile Clinic

Raised by 98 people in 39 months

When our pets get hurt or sick, we rush them to a veterinarian and are happy to pay whatever it takes to make our furry/feathery/scaly family member all better, right?

But what happens to our wildlife when they get sick?  They don't have owners to rush them to the vet or pay for their treatment.   Who takes care of them when they are in pain and in need of care?  

We are Sydney Wildlife 
We are an organisation made up purely of volunteers - and we rescue these wild animals and care for them.  However, we are not veterinarians and sometimes they need treatment that can only be provided by a professional veterinary surgeon.   At the moment we are burdening our local vets with injured wildlife and they are having to bear the medical costs, while our volunteer rescuers bear all other costs.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a service that helped our precious wildlife, as well as our volunteer rescuers and our wonderful vets...?  

We have the answer, but we need your help!   Sydney Wildlife's goal is to establish a brand new, state-of-the-art Wildlife Mobile Clinic.  It's an ambitious plan and we need your help to fund it.  

The Wildlife Mobile Clinic will provide first-class treatment to our injured and sick wildlife.  The clinic will be staffed by veterinarians who are experienced at treating wildlife and the clinic will also provide hands-on training for veterinary students who are all desperate to learn how to treat wild animals.   

Your money will contribute to the purchasing of a van, having it fitted out and on-going running costs.  The van will provide first aid and emergency medical treatment for injured animals and can be deployed to areas where  natural disasters have occurred.  Your money will also be used to provide training for our future veterinarians.

With so many dangers to face - vehicle-strike, entanglement, habitat loss, attack from feral and domestic animals, human interference etc - our wildlife are in desperate need of our help.  

In a world of problems, our Wildlife Mobile Clinic is the answer.   As we are fully operated by hard-working, unpaid volunteers, 100% of your money will be used for the benefit of wildlife, either in establishing the clinic or providing other essential care to wildlife in need.

Thank you for saving their little hurt paws, their sore bodies and their precious little lives.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and as a result of a couple of key fundraisers we've held, we are almost at our project goal of $200K for the clinic!
Go Fund Me has been an integral part of helping us to raise $10K towards this target and has allowed people who can't attend our events to donate.

We only have $38K left to raise to get to our goal of $200K!!!

We are having a Go Wild Garden Party this Sunday to try to raise the remaining funds

The Holsworthy/Menai fires have ravaged more than 2,430 hectares of bushland. Imagine the countless wildlife that have lost their homes and are suffering and traumatised? We would like to ensure that the clinic is up and running and available on-site the next time such a tragedy occurs. We have raised $128K towards our $200K goal. With only $72K to go, let's make it happen!

I donated because our wildlife need all the help they can get amid road injuries, disease, habitat displacement, land clearing, climatic extremes... and Sydney Wildlife are entirely run by volunteers.

Hi Lynleigh. I tried to pay at the fundraiser yesterday but the machine wouldn't accept my card. So here is the $100 I pledged. Thank you all for the most inspiring event.

Today I had to rescue baby ducks in a drain and save one adult and take two dead adult ducks off a dangerous road with a stranger because they were hit by someone who didn’t stop. It’s taken a few hours for it to hit me, it is a devastating thing to witness and we had no one to come to our aid quickly so it was very distressing. God bless you guys - don’t give up!
