An amazing release for injured red kite!

Releases are the best part of our work at Wildlife Aid, and the story of this red kite is a great example of why we do what we do.

Simon was called out to rescue a red kite that has been hit by a car. He found it lying by the roadside and quickly took it back to Emma, our vet, for a checkup. Amazingly, the bird was not injured and, after a few days R&R, it could be released back into the wild in one of our most incredible releases to date!


Although deer trapped in fences look almost impossible to free without damage, it's amazing just how many can be rescued with a little gentle persuasion!

Simon was recently called out to save a deer that had become wedged in a gate on a local National Trust property. The poor doe was well and truly wedged in place but, luckily, Simon had a few tricks up his sleeve to help her escape...




At the ORANGUTAN FOREST SCHOOL in Borneo, it is important that the orphaned orangutans are taught how to socialise with others properly. In the wild, they are likely to come across other individuals and knowing how to react and bond with others can be a matter of survival.


A careful playdate introduction of 8-year-old Amalia, with two younger orphans Tegar and Gonda, both just 3-years-old, was a huge success!


They were all delighted to meet one another, Amalia was very gentle with the two babies, and despite the age gap, she adapted her playing and attitude to their young mindsets.


Please help us to continue teaching these orphans the skills they need to be released into the wild http://bit.ly/Orangutan-forest-school


Discovered performing on stage in a cruel Hanoi circus, moon bear cub Sugar and her sister Spice are now safe in Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre.

It took them time to learn to believe they were safe, but now the know sanctuary life is sweet and no-one can hurt them ever again.

Cat Found with Chemical Burns Is Now in ASPCA Care. Recently, ASPCA veterinarians were alarmed when a Good Samaritan brought in a cat who was missing large portions of her fur. Rosie, as she came to be known, was suffering from what looked like severe active hair-loss, with clumps of fur readily falling out, and she smelled strongly of a common household cleaning agent.

Veterinarians at the ASPCA Animal Hospital suspected that Rosie’s state could have been caused by chemical burns, but were initially extremely concerned about her prognosis, and even tested her for a rare skin disorder to rule out all possibilities.

Once it was determined that Rosie’s hair loss was in fact caused by chemical burns, our veterinarians began immediate treatment and put together a long-term plan for Rosie’s care, starting with a cleansing bath to remove any residual chemicals present on Rosie’s skin, pain management, antibiotics and e-collar to prevent excessive grooming of the irritated skin areas.


While we continue to help Rosie, it comes to mind that we see animals like her every day. Every day, there are countless animals at-risk, in need of care and medical attention they are denied. Rescuing them is only the first step in saving them, what comes next is critical in giving animals like Rosie the second chances they deserve.

Without support from people like you, animals like Rosie might not get the care they need. Please make a lifesaving gift today to help us as we continue to fight to protect and save animals who need us most.

After being freed from a life of forced, cruel labour – thanks to speedy intervention by Animal Rahat, a wonderful group in India whose work PETA supports – 43 adult donkeys and two foals are recovering today at a sanctuary in the Nilgiri Hills.

Now we need your support to help Animal Rahat give them the best care possible!

For these 45 lucky animals, the journey to a peaceful retirement began when Indian police interrupted an illegal sand-mining operation in which desperately overworked donkeys were each being forced to haul up to 200 kilograms of sandbags on their back, over and over again. The police quickly confiscated the exhausted animals and filed charges against the perpetrators – and then they called Animal Rahat for help.


The police knew they could count on Animal Rahat – but can the group and the 45 rescued donkeys count on PETA supporters like you?

Animal Rahat rushed to the police station where the donkeys were being kept. They gave each of the long-abused animals fresh food and water and checked on their health. Thankfully, everyone was fit enough for transport, and soon, the donkeys were settling into sanctuary life.

The rescued donkeys are savouring the open space, the fresh grass, and – perhaps most of all – the relief of no longer bearing a burden of heavy cargo. Their new lives are off to a great start, but the cost of the best possible care for the rest of their days is steep.


Will you help give these donkeys – and many other animals – a happier future by making a gift to PETA's projects supporting Animal Rahat today?

Thank you for helping to ensure that these 45 rescued donkeys will enjoy a wonderful life in their new sanctuary home.


A chance to save 6 bears in the South-East of Vietnam

We recently heard of the bears who have been locked up in tiny cages and are abused for their bile. Only with your help, we will be able to bring them to their new home at our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh 🇻🇳. We want to end their misery as soon as possible! Your support will help us to rescue them.


Animals in disaster zones need your help. Hurricane Dorian's life-threatening storm surge and high winds put many vulnerable animals in jeopardy. While the storm raged, Care2's friends at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) mobilized in Greenville, S.C. to move more than 100 shelter animals to their rescue partners elsewhere. Hard to adopt animals like Jake (above) are often not chosen for these transports, but the HSUS didn't leave him, or others like him, behind.


Please give a live-saving gift today. Together, we can rescue and protect so many animals in desperate need during disasters and cruelty situations.


In addition to their response in South Carolina, the HSUS Animal Rescue Team organized three other transports in affected areas, while also helping to rescue over 30 animals — dogs, cats, a horse and two burros — from an alleged cruelty situation in Kingman, Kansas. Crawling under trailers to access shade or confined in makeshift pens, these animals were living in poor, filthy conditions.


Whether a cruelty situation or a natural disaster, HSUS is committed to providing life-saving care to animals in need. But they can only do it with YOUR help. The need is critical — Hurricane Dorian will likely not be the last major storm we see this year.


If you care as much as we do, please help by making a gift. There’s no better time to help animals than right now.

As Hurricane Dorian moved toward southern coastal states, the ASPCA disaster response team is on the ground in South Carolina working around the clock to help transport nearly 200 at-risk, homeless animals to safety as the state braces for the storm.

Hurricane Dorian is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge, heavy rainfall and high winds over the next several days. As local animal shelters prepare for impact, we've been collaborating with Wings of Rescue to quickly and safely arrange flights to the Northeast for unowned animals. But our work doesn't end there.

In addition to our response in South Carolina, we will also be quickly heading to Durham, North Carolina, to assist with animals who are at risk of being impacted by the storm. We remain on high alert and ready to respond to impacted communities with staff and supplies, including field and water rescue vehicles. Your support makes this critical work possible. A gift today can help provide safety, care and comfort to animals in times of crisis, now and in the future.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we've been able to assist thousands of animals facing natural disasters, including hurricanes and wildfires, in all corners of the country. Please donate today and help us be there for animals in need.


Volunteer with the Animal Rescue Team

One of the most commonly asked questions for our Animal Rescue Team is, “How can I volunteer?” Our team has—and relies on—a strong network of volunteers to help us make a real difference for animals in rescue and disaster relief work. We truly depend on them to help us get this important, lifesaving work done.

One of the most common mistakes prospective volunteers make is waiting until a natural or man-made disaster strikes to begin the application process and to begin proper training and preparation for becoming an Animal Rescue Team volunteer. Unfortunately, by then, it’s too late. If you want to volunteer, it’s important to apply before a disaster. If you get everything done early, you, like our many other volunteers, will be ready to deploy when animals need our help.

I can’t speak enough to the impact people feel from saving animals in need. If you want to make a difference, this is a way to do it. I encourage you to start your application today. With hurricane season on the horizon, our team will be ready to deploy at a moment’s notice - The Humane Society of the United States
