The St. Augustine Wilde Reserve is a non-profit group dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted exotic animals in the Florida. Its goal is to educate the public about exotic animal ownership to prevent future animal abuse.
They transport various animals to schools, churches, and other outreach venues for educational presentations so that individuals may see what these animals are really like, dissuading them from obtaining such an animal as a pet.
Interested parties can help through donating items such as weed eater, 20 cu.ft. chest freezers, picnic tables, wood chipper, outdoor chairs for guests, garden hoses: heavy duty, non-kink only, shovels and rakes, dish soap, scrubbers and sponges, bleach, and paper towels. The group is also in need of animal fed like raw meat including chicken, turkey, and any red meat, goat milk, powdered formula, Matrix, cat and dog food, and koi fish food.
In addition, community members can also donate in cash through the Giving Express program.
They can be reached through mail at P.O. Box 3546, St. Augustine, FL 32085. They can also be contacted through phone at (904) 940-0664 and through email at Chufff@aol.com.
