Thanks to the Wild Raise, UAnimals will be able to save even more wild animals from war.
In particular, the plan is to build a complex of 10 open-air enclosures of varying sizes. These enclosures are designed for large predators such as lions, tigers, leopards, and others. In addition, each enclosure will have houses for the animals to shelter and sleep in during the winter months. The enclosures will also be equipped with heating and lighting systems, and the utility room will be repaired.
To ensure that the Wild Animal Rescue Center can care for the predators that have been affected by exploitation and war in comfortable, spacious, and high-quality enclosures, 12 million hryvnias need to be raised.

After the animals have recovered and been rehabilitated, they will be able to continue their happy lives in appropriate rehabilitation centers in Ukraine and abroad.
Currently, the Wildlife Rescue Center is home to 36 wild animals, including 11 lions, 3 tigers, and a leopard. Over the course of its existence, the Center has rescued over 600 domestic, farm, and wild animals, including bears, leopards, tigers, monkeys, deer, elk, horses, donkeys, camels, foxes, raccoon dogs, hedgehogs, peacocks, and more.
The Center for the Rescue of Wild Animals by Natalia Popova and UAnimals is a place of temporary residence and treatment for animals. The UAnimals evacuation team, led by Natalia Popova, rescues predators from the hottest spots in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Before the war, they lived in captivity — in private ownership or in zoos — and then found themselves abandoned in closed, cramped cages under explosions. Military personnel often turn to the Center asking to save the hapless predators they have found in ruined enclosures, buildings, and yards.
The animals have become trapped under shelling due to human indifference, greed, and vanity. Together, we can save them from the war, give them a chance at a new life, treat them, and find them a new worthy home.
