Butterfly World Animal Sanctuary Lockdown Relief

Personal message

RATIONS for RASCALS

The distressing effects of the COVID19 Lockdown has been felt by everyone, everywhere.  Here at Butterfly World Animal Sanctuary, our doors may have been closed by the lockdown, but our hearts have not, and our animals - all 700 of them - still need feeding, basic healthcare and habitat upkeep. 

This is a heartfelt and desperate plea to the public to assist us in raising funds, to feed and care for all our rascals that are resident at the Sanctuary. 

Butterfly World Animal Sanctuary in Klapmuts is a safe forever-home for many exotic or previously wild critters that were kept as pets and cannot be returned to their natural homes and habitats. 

The Sanctuary is completely reliant on the income we receive from visitors’ entrance fees, which goes towards the animals’ welfare and all our running costs. This includes our staff. Klapmuts is one of the poorest communities in the Stellenbosch Municipality. Most of Butterfly World Animal Sanctuary's staff are from this community and in most cases, the only breadwinner in their families right now.

With the Lockdown we have lost our entire income.  We are therefore imploring the public for donations to help us during this very difficult time, by donating on this Backabuddy Campaign here.

For other ways to help, please get in touch at [email protected]

with love and gratitude,

700 Rascals
