WAO's Wombat Adoption Program

 

WAO has the only free range, cage free wombat sanctuary in the world. We offer a permanent home to any wombat that cannot be released back into the wild due to injury, unsafe or unviable habitat. We save wombats from trade, slaughter and research facilities. We are their only hope of a safe, enriched life. Our sanctuary is the only place where there are mixed species of wombats of both genders, of different ages, with different backgrounds all living harmoniously together

 

WAO receives no Government funding and relies solely on the kindness of others. In 2016, WAO established this beautiful adoption program to reach towards our goals of being self sustainable whilst developing a support network for the wombats. We are focused on giving back to those that support us. Every year, we are contacted by thousands of people wishing to visit our sanctuary. We feel this takes away from the true meaning of 'sanctuary' in particular for these very private and intelligent animals. To offer them what they need in life - love, reliability, consistency we established this program as an opportunity for genuine wombat and animal lovers to play a role in the wombats lives.  Our adoption program is essentially an extension to their family. We offer two different types of adoptions, one virtual for those that live interstate or overseas and the other is for those that really want to and are able to visit our sanctuary on a regular basis. Many of our adopters have developed special relationships with our wombats and have become trusted friends to us all. All adopters enjoy our plentiful updates on our private Facebook page developed specifically for them.

 

 We are a volunteer based charity, all donations and financial contributions go directly towards the care of these gorgeous babies. All costs such as veterinary care, medications, wombat milk, food and facility management are covered by our adoption program.
