Feed Me

Feed a rescued animal

With over 500 animals to care for across our three Wildlife Sanctuaries, our greatest single expenditure is simply feeding and keeping these animals healthy. 

By sponsoring one of our rescued animals, you will be helping us to ensure that, despite having difficult and traumatic starts to life, they can now live their lives in safety and security under our care.

→ It currently costs around $100,000 per year to provide food and vital medical care to the animals in our Wildlife Sanctuaries.

How does it work?

Our Feed Me scheme gives you the opportunity to create a special bond between you and one of our rescued animals. By joining the scheme, you will be ensuring their ongoing care, and that of their companions. Simply choose who you would like to connect with from the pictures below, click to find out more and start your new friendship today!

→ If you know who you would like to sponsor, but they are not in the list below, please email us on friends@intiwarayassi.org and we will try to make sure that you are able to sponsor the animal of your choice
