Our adopted animals

Unfortunately, many animals are often victims of traffic, neglect, poaching or other forms of animal suffering. On the other hand, there are people who are committed to help these animals. With a fixed monthly contribution we help them structurally with the costs of daily food, medication, accommodation, so that the animals can recover. After recovering the wild animals can be placed back in their natural habitat and the stray animals may find a home.

If you also want to help, please donate!


Charlotte, Mofalodi, Leko and Khula: 4 orphan rhinos that Wings for Animals has recently adopted for Helping Rhinos and The Rhino Orphanage, both in South Africa.


Because of this adoption it is possible that the orphans get milk to grow and to support them to go back to their original habitat eventually.

Charlotte & Mofalodi

Leko & Khula

We thank both shelters for their enormous effort to protect the rhinoceros that is threatened with extinction, to care for the orphan rhinos and give them a second chance.


Wings for Animals has been in close contact with The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust since our origin. We have been bringing pantyhoses from colleagues for a long time; with these tights the caretakers of the shelter tie the blankets around the tummies of the elephants.


They need the blankets to protect them selves from sun and cold, unfortunately they do not have a mother anymore. Since rope does rub on their bellies and tights do not, this is a nice and cheap solution!


When we delivered the tights personally, we met a lot of the rescued orphaned elephants, as we did Sirimon, Mukutan and Enkesha.

By virtual adoption we can contribute even more!

The rescue of Sirimon can be seen on this video.

Narame – “Long Life”

This baby male gorilla was born on October 29, 2022 to mother Mudakama and father Mutobo.


Dear Wings for Animals,

Thank you for adopting Narame! Here at the Fossey Fund, we are inspired daily by the generosity and support of friends like you.  Your symbolic adoption will ensure that the Fossey Fund is able to continue its work protecting gorillas and the forests they call home. This holistic conservation work ensures that gorillas will be a part of our world for generations to come.


We are inspired, daily, by the graceful, peaceful, and caring nature of these beautiful animals. The proceeds from your adoption will directly support wild gorilla protection in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Fossey Fund is the only organization with boots on the ground 7 days a week, 365 days a year – we never leave the forest.

Every gift saves a gorilla and changes a life.

Lily is our adopted rescue long tail macaque from the Sumatra wildlife centre foundation JAAN

Lily is one of the abused macaques of Indonesia that had to wear clothes and perform as a dancing monkey for street entertainment.

Many of these monkeys are captured in the wild as babies, offered as pets on horrendous markets where birds and other animals are being trafficked.

The babies grow up caged in isolation and end up chained and traumatized. When no longer wanted they are dumped somewhere or the authorities are called to collect an animal.
These macaques have a low protected status and people abuse them in various ways. They are kept as pets or forced to perform tricks as dancing monkeys trained to show their teeth by beating them during training, which people mistake as smiles.

On the picture you can see Lily “ smile”.

Lily is one of the lucky ones that was rescued together with three other macaques.

Lily is now growing into a lively little girl, that loves to play with the other monkeys and is starting to show some normal and mischievous behaviour, a happy little girl truly making her caretakers smile.

Lily will be released back into the wild when she is ready, but for the time being she will be loved and cared for by the wonderful team at JAAN.


Trinity was found in a garden in 2017, together with her brother Neo. They were  about 6 weeks old then and very sick. Both had serious eye infections in both eyes. The eyes were completely caked with pus. After a long process with a lot of eye ointment, it turned out that their eyes would never fully recover. This makes Trinity almost blind. She probably still sees shadows. She lives with Kitten Rescue in a safe environment where she knows her way around. She is fine there. Trinity is a sweet cat who likes to be with the people she knows, but she also regularly goes outside for a walk through the garden.


We have adopted Trinity remotely so she can be happy at Kitten Rescue Curacao.


Passionate, dedicated animal lovers, with a commitment to species conservation:

Dogs 4 Wildlife aims to provide both quality, highly trained dogs and specialised ranger training for the development of anti-poaching canine units, to protect endangered wildlife. Helping to inspire and motivate the next generation of wildlife protectors, through effective and determined education.

We are glad to support such an initiative by adopting anti poach dog Dan!

On 15th of February Dan was fully trained, vaccinated and traveled to Johannesburg to protect wildlife at Bonamanzi Game Reseve, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Good luck Dan, we will stay tuned to all you will contribute over there!


Forrest was found on the street when he was about 2 weeks old, along with his sisters. It was very clear that there was something wrong with Forrest. He has a cleft lip and he couldn’t stay upright. He appears to have a brain disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This means that the part of the brain that coordinates has not been developed. Now that he is older, his brain has compensated for some of this loss, but he is still unstable and could fall over. Forrest is a sweet kid, with his adorable head; he is doing just fine and he is very friendly with the other cats.

Adoption of Rocky, Rambo and Johnny!  🐬🐬🐬
In collaboration with local partners JAAN Foundation and Dolphin Project, the Umah Lumba Rehabilitation, Release and Retirement Center in Bali (“Umah Lumba” means “dolphins” in Balinese) was built!
The Umah Lumba Center is a purpose-built facility for captive dolphins. The facility is designed to stabilize the mammals, check their health and look at their eligibility for release.
Rocky, Rambo and Johnny were trapped for several years in a shallow, heavily chlorinated pool at a hotel in North Bali.
 After confiscation, they were taken care of at the Umah Lumba Center and enjoy natural seawater and the ability to dive and swim!!  They are cared for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by the team who are committed to making the life of the dolphins as natural and independent as possible.
 Virtual adoption of these dolphins will allow Johnny, Rocky and Rambo to continue to receive the best possible care.
