Who We Are

Our Roots

Friends of Free Wildlife is a community-based, public-funded volunteer organisation. It was founded in May 2016 by passionate and qualified wildlife rehabilitators with the best interest of our urban wildlife as a founding mandate.


To create a well-respected, ethical wildlife rehabilitation centre that provides for the care of urban wildlife: that is, the rescue, rehabilitation and release of the animals that share our space.

We operate under a Rehabilitation Permit granted by GDARD (Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development) and are a registered NPO (Non-Profit Organisation). We are also endorsed by and work closely with the NSPCA.

We are an approved Public Benefit Organisation and hold a B-BBEE Level 4 EME. We rely on the generosity of the public through donations, bequests, sponsorship and voluntary assistance in all aspects of running the organisation.

Monthly Commitment Once off Donation



Friends of Free Wildlife relies completely on the general public to crowd-fund and sustain its operations to rescue, rehabilitate, and release our urban wildlife.

We encourage members of the public and small businesses to commit to a monthly donation of their choice to sustain our efforts. The committed amount is completely up to the donor. We also issue SARS Section 18A tax certificates to donors.
