Dear Donors,

SAI strives to rescue and protect zoo animals throughout Venezuela.

SAI has provided vital food and support to animal life at two animal sanctuaries and one zoo. Thanks to your support, we are changing the lives of these animals by keeping them healthy and safe.

We delivered food to the zoos and animal refuges that we support. Here's a list of the foods:

          Bananas           Sunflower seeds                Green beans 
          Papaya             Eggs                                    Chicken 
          Plantain            Mice                                     Gaullac milk
          Mangos            Protein                                
Peanut 
          Watermelon     Powdered Milk

Donations keep these animals alive and healthy during this nationwide crisis in Venezuela.

In fact, SAI has been quietly supplying zoos and animal refuges with medical care and specialty foods to feed these captive creatures for over two years - many who can no longer survive in the wild on their own.

Your Generosity Is Saving These Animals

Our staff and volunteers are grateful because without your donations and the generosity the A&G Animal Fund, many of these rare creatures would simply die of starvation and disease. Due to your compassion, a beautiful array of zoo animals and reptiles are happy, well-nourished, and healthy!
