"We should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do will outlast our mortality" - RJ Palacio
Animal Assist’s key focus is helping animals in need. We provide a platform to smaller groups who are doing amazing work on very small budgets to expand and strengthen their scope to create change. We do this by working closely with a project’s management team to assess priority areas of development and use our networks to help improve their capacity. The result of this collaboration is improving the welfare and conservation outcomes for both wild and domestic species.
Animal Assist sees fundraising as a vital aspect of what we do. We offer support to various organisations, aiming to relieve revenue-raising pressure, thus allowing them to focus on what they do best. With a team experienced in all forms of fundraising we raise vital funds for projects that are often in desperate need of financial support in order to allow them to take care of the day to day activities they are involved in.
With your support as part of the Animal Assist team, we can provide the financial assistance that enables our supported projects to deliver their essential outcomes. Animal Assist is NOT a registered charity, we team up with charities and use our skillsets to maximise fundraising outcomes.
Providing funding allows the organisation to respond to what is most critical at the time. Needs and priorities can change rapidly when dealing with rescuing animals and can often be the difference between life and death on any given day. Providing assistance in this way, as well as supporting specific projects within the organisation, forms the crux of our work.
Join us today and become a voice for the voiceless and play a part in the solution, by providing essential assistance to those that need it the most.
The hot, humid climate of SE Asia, where many of our projects are based, provides an ideal breeding ground for parasites, pathogens and disease. The animals we support are often in need of medical care but specific veterinary equipment and medications are often not available, or when they are, can be incredibly expensive.
Animal Assist has a solid background in the veterinary field and provides funding for projects requiring veterinary expertise and care. We are proud to have connections to major veterinary suppliers so we can assist, treat and improve the lives of these animals.
We welcome donations from hospitals, pharmacies, vet clinics and suppliers and are keen to expand our relationships in this area.
In any captive animal situation, Animal Assist supports the core elements of good animal welfare – adequate and appropriate housing, feeding and medical care, freedom from discomfort and pain, and the provision of enrichment. Enrichment is the process of providing captive animals with some form of mental or physical stimulation with the aim of supporting positive mental health and encouraging natural behaviours. For these animals to return to the wild they need to learn, or continue to practice, normal behaviours such as foraging or interacting in social groups.
Providing enrichment to captive animals is a core welfare issue that Animal Assist feels very strongly about. There are many ways in which we contribute – we seek out enrichment items (eg Kongs) and support projects with funding for food, environmental and behavioural enrichment. We also provide funding for appropriate enclosure upgrades for those animals unable to be returned to the wild and for domestic animals awaiting adoption.
Animal Assist run targeted, fundraising campaigns and events on behalf of our chosen projects. Explore our projects to see who we are currently collaborating with and how you can help us create positive change.
