SPONSOR A JOEY

Sponsor a joey and help pay for their milk, supplementary feed, bedding and medical needs. Did you know it costs an average of around $1,500 to raise one healthy joey to release age?

Most of our joeys are in care for around 12 months before soft-releasing. You will be informed when they’ve moved permanently back into the wild. As a release site, there’s a good chance you’ll see photos of the kangaroos long after they’re no longer in care too!

You will receive a sponsorship certificate, social media jpegs and a monthly email update with photos, written from your joey’s perspective. To keep it affordable, we offer multiple sponsorships for each joey in care. If you are interested in exclusively sponsoring a joey, or would prefer to make a one-off payment of $200 for a sponsorship for yourself or as a gift, please contact us directly.

Every sponsor is personally acknowledged on the ‘Friends’ page of this website. The majority of new orphans arrive between June – October each year.

Cooper

$25/month
Road Accident Orphan

Cooper arrived after his mother was hit by a car at Sanctuary Point. A caring member of the public called Kirsty rescued him, called Wildlife Rescue and he arrived here shortly after that. He’s just starting to come out of his shell now and loves to hop out of his pouch to join his friend Melvin on the grass. Melvin likes to lick his ears, which Cooper finds comfort in

Heidi

$25/month
Road Accident Orphan

Heidi from Nowra arrived on the same day as Cooper. Her mother was hit by a car but still alive and suffering while Heidi was standing next to her. After her rescue, her mother was humanely euthanised and Heidi had to start a new artificial life with us humans. She’s quite confident out of the pouch, but is still learning the ropes. She loves using her claws to control her bottle.

Illy

$10/month
Found Alone

Illy the Kitty is obviously not a joey. She was found alone, at just 188 grams and nine days old, so we bottle-fed and raised her. We open our hearts for all animals. Illy is now 12-months old. If you would like to contribute to her ongoing care and vet bills, you can do so here. Now she’s becoming a cat, she refuses to write to sponsors, but we’ll send you a sponsor certificate.

Melvin

$25/month
Road Accident Orphan

Melvin not only lost his mother, but also his older sibling in a car accident(?) in March 2018. He arrived extremely stressed and took a record 10 days to settle into his new home. A record he shares with previous joeys Penny and Pluto. Melvin is a few weeks younger than his buddies. He is learning to hop and loving his new legs.

Minnie

$25/month
Found Alone

Minnie was found alone by a couple walking their dog. She was so dehydrated, hungry and exhausted she virtually collapsed into the pillow case her perceived predators offered her. After 10 days quarantine with a suspected virus, lots of love, warmth and rehydration, she returned to her original weight and is now Minnie Moo the Confident Roo. She loves hopping around and lying out in the sun

Morty

$25/month
Shooting Orphan

Morty was found at Potato Point, in the paddock where his mother had been shot dead, 17-hours earlier. He was 6 1/2 months old. Cold, dehydrated, shaking from stress. He is the product of a cow farmer unwilling to share land with the native animals. He settled in fast, thankful for warmth, love and his bottle, which he learnt to latch onto very quickly. He’s full of spunk and super inquisitive.

The Mob

$25/month
Sponsor the Mob!

Once they’re ready to go out into the big wide world, many continue returning to the house at dusk for food, shelter and water for quite some time. They also come back if injured or have parasite overburdens we need to take care of. Whether you wish to help pay for their feed and medication, you want an overview on all your favourites, or you’ve sponsored a joey and wish to be kept up-to-date on their progress after release, this is where to do it. We’ll send an email monthly, updating you on all the ex-orphans and their welfare.

Wild2Free

$100/month
Sponsor Us!

There are many costs not directly related to feeding animals. Things like enclosures, shade cloth, admin, utilities, cleaning and laundry hygiene. Sponsor us and we’ll add your business logo or personal name to our website and a big thank you on our Facebook and Instagram pages. You’ll receive a sponsorship certificate and you can select up to 5 joeys to receive emails from each month.
