Fight Dog Meat is an animal welfare charity which rescues domestic pets and wildlife.
We rescue, foster, rehabilitate and re-home.
Our rescue team members live in locations with prolific wildlife, so consequently our experienced rescuers save many species of wildlife, including endangered species.
The Fight Dog Meat animal rescue team are on call around the clock, no matter the time, temperature or weather.
The following photographs are a sample of the charity’s wildlife rescue work.
