Squirrel rescue & Rehab Western Cape

Personal message

We are a team dedicated to the raising and release back into the wild of baby orphaned squirrels in the Western Cape Area. We are self-funded, and with the growth of our organization, we have seen an influx of amounts of babies we currently raise per season and therefore need help with funds for things such as milk formula, vet visits, the building of new release site enclosures etc.

We are currently trying to raise funds to build new release enclosures, as we so far this season (Jan until now) have taken in 131 babies.  The cost of the formula we use is R300 a can (Royal canine puppy milk) and the cost of weaning them after, is astronomical as we feed imported rat pellets that are correctly balanced for their needs.

Our fundraising goal amount is an estimate, as we continuously need funds.

Breeding season happens twice annually, last year (2 seasons) we raised around 160 babies. This season, we have taken in 131 thus far, so double what we took in last year.  It costs on average in the region of R3 000 to raise and release a healthy baby, and if it has complications, wounds or broken bones etc.. that can very quickly double.
