However, we can't begin to imagine how difficult it must be for our friends and colleagues from foreign countries who are unable to head back to their families, to their homes. The depressing feeling of being 'caged up' is not one we would even wish upon our enemies.
Unfortunately, this is the rotten hand that has been dealt to the victims of the illegal wildlife trade who reside at our wildlife rescue centre, even long before the COVID-19 pandemic.
While repatriation remains as one of our priorities, due to various reasons many of these animals will never see the wild again. We can only look forward and focus on making their stay a comfortable one. From routinely refurnishing their enclosures with structures to meeting their specific dietary and veterinary needs, maintaining a facility dedicated to both native and non-native animals does not come cheap.
As you read to the end of this introduction, 120 rescued victims in our sanctuary, hailing from South Africa and Madagascar to Malaysia and Papua New Guinea, would have expended $0.60 every minute. That's an average of $36 an hour or $27,000 a month for food, medical, supplements and care. We need your help to raise $60,000 to support our work for these animals.

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.
