The South Island Wildlife Hospital has ongoing operational costs for medical treatment, supplies and and patient food.
The South Island Wildlife Hospital is a charitable trust which is run 100% by volunteers, and funding is 100% by donations.
We take in sick and injured wildlife from all over Canterbury, to treat and rehabilitate them for release. Often it is people in the community who bring in birds that they have found that require veterinary treatment, and also the Department of Conservation.
Each day volunteers are rostered to care for the patients, and our vet team juggle hours in the hospital around their normal day jobs. All medical costs, food for the patients and medical consumables are purchased from donations that are received.
We require regular donations to help us with these everyday costs and we would be very appreciative of every dollar that is given to our cause.
The South Island Wildlife Hospital is managed by the charitable Wildlife Veterinary Trust and run by an amazing team of volunteers.
Located in Christchurch, & dedicated to treating/rehabilitating sick or injured, wild & native birds that are found by the local community & by DOC.
