Project Report Update

Mazi

A warm thanks to all donors and project participants that made the Paws + Claws & July Bonus Day Matching Campaigns a great success! You helped us raise a grand total of $17,974 for the animals at Keepers of the Wild.

Your support will go a long way to provide food for over 150 rescued wild and exotic animals that call Keepers of the Wild home. 

Your donations make it possible for us to continue to intervene on behalf of animals in need of rescue such as Mazi, Cindy and Shadow and provide them with the care they deserve.

 As you know, food and care expenses are an on-going expense and this fundraiser will remain active on GlobalGiving.

 Again, we are so thankful for your continued support to provide the best for these deserving animals. 

 

Sincerely,

Nichole Walls

Another Happy Ending...

"Uncle" Bucky & Kenai
"Uncle" Bucky & Kenai

"Uncle" Bucky is very loving and patient with little Kenai.

Kenai, an orphan black bear cub, was brought to Keepers of the Wild by Arizona Game and Fish last year. We were his last hope, he would have been euthanized if we were unable to take him.

As a young cub, Kenai required specialized care. After spending several months in a temporary enclosure, Kenai had matured enough to be introduced to his new black bear family. The introduction process was slow but Kenai was well received by the other bears. Kenai interacts with all the bears but seems to especially enjoy his play time with Bucky.

His new black bear family had spent most of their lives performing and posing for photos- confined in chains and small spaces to provide "entertainment" for people.

It sure is rewarding to witness these rescued animals experience a happy life after enduring so much suffering. Your support is what makes that possible.

As you know, food and care expenses of all rescued animals are an on-going expense and this fundraisier will remain active on GlobalGiving. We are so thankful for your continued support to provide the best for these deserving animals.

How your donations make a difference

Thank you so much for helping us raise much needed funds for the care needs of the rescued animals at Keepers of the Wild! There were over 4,400 competing fundraising projects hosted on the Global Giving Platform on Giving Tuesday. With your help Keepers of the Wild finished in 8th place and raised a total of $19,483 for the animals! WOW!! THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much and could not care for these wonderful animals without your help! 

Your donations make it possible for us to continue to intervene on behalf of the animals and provide them with the care they deserve. The sixteen new animals that call Keepers of the Wild their forever home came from various sources and conditions. We are thankful to be able to provide them the type of home they deserve. We often hear of animals that may need a new home. Many people contact us when they know of an animal that is in a difficult situation. Sometimes we receive calls from the owners of the animals, sometimes from a friend or relative, sometimes from a concerned citizen, sometimes from another sanctuary and sometimes from an animal regulatory agency. 
Jonathan Kraft (Founder & Executive Director) examines many factors when approached to take the responsibility to care for an individual animal (or group) for the remainder of their life. Some things to consider include: species; habitat requirements; current medical issues / location / transportation requirements; licensing & permits to transport; veterinary care; long term financial support to provide the type of individual care the animal deserves. Each circumstance is individual and carefully considered. There are times when a rescue is simple and quickly performed. There are other times where a variety of complications and issues arise requiring months of planning. 
I would like you to meet some of the animals that you helped us rescue and provide care for.
