Did you know that rat meat costs four times more than chicken or pork and twice that of beef in China? We rescued this elderly bamboo rat who had severe malocclusion and set up a trail camera to make sure he was recovering well after treatment. We were pleasantly surprised…
Last week the WFFT Rescue Centre welcomed four new patients. A Juvenile collared scops owl (Otus lettia), an Asian openbill stork (Anastomus oscitans), a green iguana (Iguana iguana), and an Indian peahen (Pavo cristatus).
WFFT would like to say thank you to our staff, volunteers, sponsors, donors and visitors from all over the world. It’s another year of success. Happy new year everyone!!
This week we received a call from a family that wanted to find a new home for their pet, a 10-month-old Asian small-clawed otter (Amblonyx cinerea) named “Pun Pun".
“Hope” living her regular day as a street dog, searching for food from trash and looking for a safe place to sleep every single night. All of a sudden the tight collar that was placed on her neck started to cause excruciating pain.
Christmas is all about giving and sharing, our lovely staff and volunteers made special Christmas gifts for our resident primates to celebrate this festive season.
May your holidays be filled with joy and love!
Merry Christmas From WFFT! Best wishes to all of you! 🎄🎉🎄
We received a phone call last week from a concerned citizen who had found four little fishing cat kittens (Prionailurus viverrinus) in a field that they were clearing at their farm.
This morning it was 18 celsius at WFFT, Maggie found a blanket to snuggle in to stay warm.
The keeping of wildlife as pets is driving many species to the edge of extinction. It also leads to very poor welfare of the animals that are being kept captive. Here is a prime example of health problems caused by keeping wild animals as pets.
This week we rescued 3 slow lorises (Nycticebus.). Tang-Thai, Thanarat, and Robert.
"Jan" is a captive bred female mountain lion. Almost a decade ago she was imported into Thailand with many other mountain lions to be sold to zoos or to become a pet when she was only a cub.
Who remembers "Peter & Simon" the 3-legged bulls that WFFT rescued a few years ago? After we introduced them to each other back in 2017, they have formed a close bond and become brothers.
Meet ‘Tufa‘ a male Bengal slow loris, a new resident at the Wildlife Friends Foundation. At one year old, Tufa was abandoned by his previous owner, but luckily good citizens had rescued and taken care of him ever since.
