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

Share our appeal

Those far away, those who have nothing to spare right now: you can still help! Please just share our Backabuddy appeal – you never know who might see it.
