Donate to WAO

Rescuing animals is expensive, especially when we operate a state wide rescue service assisting all animals in remote and rural locations. We also rehabilitate these animals and operate the only free range wombat sanctuary providing permanent care to wombats that can not be released to the wild due to injury, unsafe or unviable habitat. Every dollar donated goes directly to the animals. We are volunteers dedicated to animal welfare.


When you donate to us, your precious gift goes to pay for:

  • Veterinary treatment - We have access to our veterinarian 24 hours a day, every day

  • Medications - for both emergency and long term care

  • Food for the animals

  • Travel expenses - We try to gain sponsorship for everything possible to keep our 24 hour rescue vehicle on the road! Our tyres are proudly sponsored by TyreRight and we are always on look out for help with car servicing however petrol costs are always an expense that needs covering.

  • The basic operation costs for utilities (all admin costs are covered via assistance of volunteers)


When making a donation to WAO you will be able to choose a once-off payment or you can help provide us with much needed ongoing support via giving a recurring monthly donation of any amount that you choose. If the donation is a gift on behalf of someone, we can provide you with a donation certificate with the giftees name! Head to our online shop to order your gift donation certificate. All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.
