Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre is a registered "right to life" organisation that is involved in the rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected and abused animals.
Animals in our care are not put to sleep, they stay with us until they can get a new home. Should an animal be in such a bad state that it cannot be rehabilitated or in severe pain and suffering then our vet will humanely put the animal to sleep.
Once rehabilitated these animals are available for adoption into new loving homes. We give dogs, cats and horses a safe refuge until we've found them a loving new home or reunited them with their worried owners.
Many of the animals at Wet Nose have been hurt by their experiences, so we often have to spend time helping them overcome problems they've developed as a result of abuse.
Our vets treat animals against disease and treat any problems at the veterinary clinic; kennel hands provide everything from hearty meals to cuddles; and volunteers take our dogs for long walks.
We also offer to rehome your pet should you be unable to accommodate it any more. We offer a support group service for owners in distress relating to pet issues.We also assist by advising on animal behavioural problems.
Tracy Forte founded Wet Nose in April 1999. She started with a dream - to ensure that healthy animals get a second chance in life, and making sure that they receive love and care whilst waiting for their Silver Lining.
Wet Nose is run by a Board of Directors, a committee and is audited annually.
Wet Nose started rescuing animals from Zimbabwe in June 2000. Thousands of animals have been rehomed or reunited back with their families, some as far as Australia and the United Kingdom.

Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre - Freeme
Wildlife is in crisis everywhere and our towns and suburbs are no exception. Every year development consumes thousands of hectares, covering the indigenous bush with roads, houses and factories.
FreeMe exists to...
Orphaned, abandoned, injured and displaced indigenous birds, mammals and reptiles are brought to the FreeMe centre in northern Johannesburg. We treat approximately 10 000 animals each year.
FreeMe is run by a full-time manager and a dedicated group of volunteers and the centre is open from 8am to 5pm, 365 days a year. With the help of local veterinarians we provide specialised treatment, care and rehabilitation. In terms of Nature Conservation rules the animals are not on view to the public.
The ultimate aim is to release wildlife back into its natural habitat. Releases take place in carefully chosen areas including reserves and conservancies.
SanWild is a wildlife rehabilitation centre in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. Offering wonderful accommodation in the African bush. Do join us and "Be the Rightkind for WildKind"
Situated in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, approximately 60km's from the town of Tzaneen is the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary.
The SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary has introduced numerous rescued and rehabilitated wild animals including impala, kudu, blue wildebeest, red hartebeest, waterbuck, common and mountain reedbuck, grey duiker, nyala, giraffe, zebras, steenbok, rhinos, hippos and elephants. Some very elusive and rare creatures like pangolin and aardvark have also chosen of their own accord to make this protected reserve their home.
Wild leopard and cheetahs roam freely and a pack of rescued African Wild Dogs will be introduced shortly. Many small predators like serval, caracal and civets can also be seen in the reserve and the Sanctuary’s large predator Cats’ Rescue centre is home to 19 lions rescued from South Africa’s sordid canned lion breeding and hunting industry.
Accommodation: Savannah Private Bush Camp consists of four luxury chalets with en-suite bathrooms and thatched roofs. Each luxury chalet sleeps 2 although more beds can be added for parents who want to keep an eye on their little ones. Satellite television is available in all the chalets.
The central facility is set in beautiful gardens with a rock pool where guests can escape the heat while keeping a close eye on a wide variety of wild animals drinking from the waterhole a mere 80 meters away. The camp is completely fenced to keep out SanWild’s large wild animals like elephants, rhinos and hippos.
A resident chef prepares scrumptious meals that are served in the dining room cum lounge that has a huge fireplace for those cold rainy days. A veranda under thatch leads off to the dining room and includes a small pub where guests can relax or socialize during the day. Some evenings are spent in the open-air boma area where meals can be prepared next to a campfire.
A maximum of eight people are accommodated in the Savannah Private Bush Camp at any given time. The camp is also available to groups or for corporate bookings.

In 1969, the Red Book: Wildlife in Danger, published by the World Conservation Union (IUCN), listed at least 120 mammalian species as "presently in some (or great) danger of extinction".
Less than 30 years later on October 5, 1996, the World Conservation Union (IUCN), made world headlines when it released its most thorough, up to date findings gathered by 1,500 government and non-government experts of over 100 countries around the globe. Of 26 mammalian orders nearly 1,200 species are in threat of extinction -- about 25%. 24 orders include threatened species while 6 of the largest orders have over 50 threatened species each.
Wwf South Africa
WWF was born into this world in 1961.
It was the product of a deep concern held by a few eminent people who were worried by our impact on the natural world.
WWF South Africa was founded in 1968 by the late Dr. Anton Rupert and was then known as the Southern African Nature Foundation with its main focus to conserve African wildlife.
Since those early days WWF has grown up to be one of the largest environmental organisations in the world. Today WWF deals with a range of environmental issues from preventing the loss of species, protecting important ecoregions and biodiversity hotspots in Africa and conserving water to the management of our marine resources and promoting sustainability practices within businesses.
Currently there are more than 1300 WWF conservation projects underway around the world.
The vast majority of these focus on local issues. They range from vegetable gardens in KwaZulu-Natal, to initiatives to protect life in the ocean, from the rehabilitation of wetlands to ensure freshwater to the establishment of reserves for endangered animals.
Almost all our work involves partnerships.
We team up with local non-profit agencies and other global NGOs. We form relationships with village elders, local municipalities and regional government offices. And in this day and age of globalisation, critically, we work with businesses who are willing to change.
But our most important partnership is with you.
Your support means we have the necessary strength to engage with national governments and global agencies like the World Bank. Your support means we have the network to reach out to isolated tribes in the forests of the Congo and the Amazon.
Your support means we can have real successes and lasting breakthrough in the conservation efforts for our one and only planet.
So who is WWF?
We are nothing without you.
