East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue: A Safe Haven For Magnificent Animals

East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue

Donate to East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue

Head over to the East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue’s donation page to “join the pride.”

Give us a brief background of who you are for those that don’t know.

East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue’s goals include:

1. Provide a safe haven for these magnificent animals, many of whom have experienced a lifetime of displacement from their natural habitat and, in some cases, horrible mistreatment.

2. Offer education to the public about the special needs of captive exotic animals who are unable to help themselves.

3. Fundraise to keep the rescue operational.

Working with a supportive and involved board of directors and a few highly dedicated volunteers at the rescue, we are here not to promote these animals as pets, but rather to provide clear examples of the consequences of human self-interest and interference in the animals’ lives.

The survival rate among animals who are trapped, transported, and sold in pet stores is terribly low. In many cases, only one out of ten “pets” survives the trip from jungle to human home. We humans have the ability to make choices, a power that the animals we serve do not have. Their choices were made for them, usually at the animals’ expense.
