UPDATE: WE HAVE RAISED $162,000 TOWARDS OUR TARGET OF $200,000!!!ONLY $38K LEFT TO GO!
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 www.sydneywildlife.org.au
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.
