With no government funding, all of the animals receive high-quality care with help from private donations like yours. You can choose to make a one-time gift or schedule a monthly donation to support the ongoing care of the animals.
Forest Animal Rescue is dedicated to the lifetime care of nonreleasable wild animals to prevent them from being destroyed. The animals have been abused, neglected, retired from research labs, abandoned at closed tourist attractions, confiscated by authorities, and more. We are their last hope – their last stop.
In addition to rescuing nonreleasable wild animals from inappropriate conditions, we rehabilitate and release black bear cubs for the authorities in Florida and surrounding states.
With help like yours, they all receive lifetime care at our no-kill sanctuary. They are never bred, sold, or exploited in any way – they finally have the chance to live out their lives with the dignity that they deserve.
God bless you
have you thought of contacting John Travolta. He is a huge supporter of Marion County. I think that the 66,000 would be easy to get if you can contact him. http://travolta.com/contact/
Thank you for your comment. We have tried reaching out to him before. We had made contact with him at one time but were never able to complete the connection. I’ll try your link and see if he gets the message from his fan club!
I have paused my adblock, but find no Donate link, or better PayPal button.
Thank you for letting us know. I’m not sure what the exact problem is, but if you are having trouble viewing the donate button on our website, you can also go to https://donorbox.org/help-rescued-animals-at-forest-animal-rescue and the donation can be processed the same way securely. This is the link to our donation processing site directly. Thank you!
Do you do animal sponsorships or symbolic adoptions for specific animals?
Yes we do! We are working on adding direct links to our website but meanwhile you can simply send us an email and we can discuss which animal you wish to support! You can visit https://www.forestanimalrescue.org/donate/sponsor-an-animal/ for pricing and more information.
I would love to do internship with your organization. I graduate next year october with certification in zoo assistant. I also have certification in wildlife and foresty management. I have couple of questions regarding a internship. First being im going be thirty by time i graduate. Will i be too old to secure housing. Second question i would like come at the end of march to view your organization. Would that be possible to take tour of the place.
Michael, First of all, you are never too old to help and we would love for you to apply for an internship. Decisions are made based on your qualifications and availability and are not based on age. We are not sure when our semi-monthly tours will resume (they are on hold due to COVID-19 right now) – but if you sign up for our e-news you will be among the first to know. I suspect tours will be up and running again by March.
Ok thanks for getting back to me. I email closer to that time. I will sign up for news letter. I cant wait to be able to get some experience with working exotic animals. Hopefully, it’s with your organization.
Keep up the great work you do everyday!
Do you need bamboo for pandas ? I have to cut it from coming over fence and hitting my house all the time from neighbors yard. Thanks for saving and caring for the animals! I am in new smryna beach pretty close.
Sadlt, the red pandas never made it to the sanctuary. We planted bamboo ourselves in anticipation of their arrival, but it never happened. Here is a link to the post about it. https://www.forestanimalrescue.org/red-panda-sad-news/
Lisa, You know I love you dearly (all of you), for the great work. It took me over a dozen times to make a donation. The system kept resetting and then deny and reset. I had to change sources for payment several times. I hope this was not for everyone. But I think it would be wise for someone to check on this.
Constantly, all my best,
Thanks Bob! I had not heard that from anyone else, thank you for telling me! We appreciate your support very much – you are one of our favorite people! Lisa
