Thank you for offering your support!


Remember, the best way to support us is to visit us! We are open, Covid-19 compliant,  and want to welcome as many people back as possible! Your family day out is what provides the income that has kept us going for 25 years. See our contact info for details on a visit.


Donate Funds 

If you think your heating bill gets worse in winter you should see ours! And that’s only the beginning. With most of the last 18 months spent closed to the public with the same overheads we have simply run out of savings. As we are a small, one facility business you will see exactly where your money will go, and a little goes a long way with us. You can donate through our backabuddy campaign, in person at Exotic Animal World, or via EFT.


Donate animal food or pet supplies

We have a lot of mouths to feed and though most of it is cheap, our total bill can be staggering.

You can visit out Takealot wishlist to see what kind of things we need, but we are also more than happy to accept second hand donations of pet supplies such as heat lamps, tanks, unused food and even old newspapers! You can see a list of things we really need here.

Donations can be left at Exotic Animal World itself, or contact us for any queries.


Donate other items you no longer need

We have an incredible maintenance team, but even the best can’t work with out tools. Multiple recent break-ins have left us with a skeleton tool box, and the better equipped we are the better we can work. Also, as you can imagine, your old security gates are high on our wish list, as well as a washing machine, after our trusty Whirlpool finally gave up a few weeks ago. Take a look at our more extensive list to see if your old items are on our wish-list! Donations can be left at Exotic Animal World itself, or contact us for any queries.
