BENEFITING: Conservators' Center
Over 100 exotic animals - including lions, tigers, wolves, and leopards - have found a home at the Conservators' Center in North Carolina since it was founded in 1999. The Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to wildlife education, conservation, and rescue. To learn more about us, visit BeWilderNC.org.
Many of our residents, all of whom were born in captivity and arrived here through rescue or placement, came from circumstances where they did not receive optimal medical attention. Therefore, veterinary care can present some unique challenges.
We are proud of the care we are already able to provide our animals, and their long, happy lives are a credit to the love and attention they receive here. But in order to provide the best possible care for our residents, we want to build an onsite veterinary clinic. Won't you give what you can to this special cause?
$100,000 would allow us to construct a clinic with a recovery enclosure, equipment, and supplies. This facility will be large enough to serve our long-term needs, even if our animal population increases.
Currently, our small animals (bobcats, servals, etc) are taken to the clinics of the generous veterinarians who provide medical care, but an onsite veterinary clinic would reduce the need for transport, which can be stressful for our animals. Veterinarians travel to us to tend to the medical needs of our larger residents outdoors, but an indoor workspace will eliminate concerns like weather, lighting, running water, and lack of equipment.
We feel that every animal should be provided with everything needed to age in a healthy and comfortable way. Please help us achieve our goal.
