Care for Wild US

Connecting the world

Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary (US) is committed to saving endangered species in Southern Africa, in particular the orphaned black and white rhino babies that are rescued and rehabilitated by Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC. We do this through donations, fundraising events and by publicising the plight of the rhino and other species pushed to the point of extinction by the barbaric poaching that takes place to satisfy the greed and ignorance of those that consume the resulting “products”.

Care for Wild is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the USA. Any charitable donations and contributions to CFWRS are deductible for U.S. Income Tax purposes, to the extent allowed by the law.
