Recently, a step has been taken further from domestic pet rescue to that of wild animals such as Cheetahs, Lions and Tigers. These operations are often supported by conservation charities and zoos. The aim of these rescues is to make the animals are fit and healthy again, they are finally sent back to the wild or In cases of endangered species, they are kept back.
After these animals are rescued, they need shelters which are provided by ‘Animal Shelters’, a group responsible for providing safe havens for the animals come in. Working quite closely with rescue groups, they take the animals from rescuers and house them. Some differences between these two groups are – Rescue groups raise funds mostly by donations and volunteers while Animal Shelters source their funds from the local governments. Shelters place animals mostly in on-site kennels and shelter homes while rescue groups use facilities and personal homes.
