These victims who suffered at the demand of the illegal pet trade in Singapore are now home in the protected wilderness - free to eat what they want, when they want and how ever they want. Our collective success breeds ambition to do more for the animals, particularly the 124 remaining victims of tortoises, turtles, snakes and lizards who continue to reside at the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Center.
While repatriation remains as one of our priorities, green iguana Aldo and fourteen others of his kind will never return to South America where they are in abundance. For little Aldo, possibly the youngest in our care, that may mean up to 15 years.
As you read to the end of this introduction, 124 rescued victims in our sanctuary, hailing from South Africa and Madagascar to Malaysia and Papua New Guinea, would have expended $0.20 every minute. That's an average of $12 an hour or $8,500 a month for food, medical and land rental alone.
We need your help to raise $25,000 to secure and ensure that there are funds to provide food and veterinary supplies for these animals from now till May 2020.
With your faith and support in us, the animals will reap the benefits in their forever home, away from home.
Thank you for your generous support in advance!
About the Charity
ACRES is a pioneering Singapore-based charity with a sole aim to advocate for an end to animal cruelty in our own backyard. With Singapore's first facility dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade and injured native wild animals we speak up for more animals via our five focus areas: Tackling Wildlife Crime in Singapore, Humane Education, Promoting Cruelty-Free Living, Community Outreach, and Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation.
Since our founding in May 2001, ACRES has helped effect several environmental shifts that pushed Singapore forward in the animal protection movement. Alongside collaborative efforts with governmental agencies, we seek to nurture a responsible society from grassroots level to the individual homes where animals are treated with compassion and respect.
