Australian based organization Fight Dog Meat is hands on in rescuing animals in real life. We rescue many species of wildlife, including endangered species, as well as domestic pets. We’re based in a location with prolific wildlife which includes Koalas,Kangaroos, many endangered animals and thousands of different species of wildlife, bird life, marine life and reptiles. FDM founder Michele Brown has been rescuing all species of animals for decades. The following photographs are small portion of some of the variety of animals rescued by Michele in the last year.
I rescued this koala, who was too weak and ill to climb the tree. His body mass index only measured 10 out 100.
This is the s same koala as above, unable to climb the tree. I took this photo minutes before I rescued him.
The same Koala as he was being rescued. He went by animal ambulance to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, with a team of Koala experts.
I rescued this Tawny Frog Nose Mouth raptor bird. He had suffered a fractured skull.
I rescued this large kangaroo after he suffered a catastrophic injury to his left hind leg. Because he was mobile, I walked next to him for two hours as he dragged his leg bones in the dirt, waiting for a vet to arrive to sedate him with a tranquilizer gun.
The same large Kangaroo, with the broken hind left leg. His injuries were beyond repair.
I rescued this Ibis bird. He had a broken spine and was paralyzed.
Six month old ‘Baby’ the orphan kangaroo. His mother broke her hind leg and had to be euthanized, leaving the pouch joey Baby by himself. He should have been with his mom for two years; he only had six months. I’ve been watching over Baby everyday for 14 months and continue to monitor him.
I rescued a pair of young Sugar Gliders, which had become separated from their mother in strong winds.
I rescued this family of ducks and seven ducklings from a swimming pool. All the ducklings were safely rescued and kept with both parent ducks.
The rescued family of ducks and seven ducklings, on dry ground heading to safety, to the lake.
I rescued this mother Kangaroo who was gravely ill. She was unable to even stand upright and in a lot of pain.
I rescued this bird who was a lost pet.
I rescued this possum who was suffering a debilitating skin disease. He was transferred to hospital for treatment.
I rescued this baby Water Dragon after he became injured. Water Dragons grown to over one meter (3 foot), in size.
I was horrified when I first saw this Koala. She had severe malnutrition due to a serious illness. After I rescued her she went by Animal Ambulance to Currumbin’s Koala Specialist vets.
On her way to hospital for urgent treatment by Koala Specialist vets.
I rescued this Water Hen after she broke her leg.
I rescued this animal; he’s part of the Australian Goanna family, also known as a Monitor Lizard; a relative of the Iguana. He suffered a terrible injury to his tail and was treated in hospital.
I rescued this duck, who had suffered a neurological injury.
I rescued this bird who was in bad shape and unable to fly.
I rescued this injured Rainbow Lorikeet.
I rescued this Wallaby from a resident’s back yard. A Wallaby is a relative and smaller version of the Kangaroo. I had to collapse part of the fence to let the terrified Wallaby flee to freedom.
I rescued this Cockatoo after he suffered an injury.
I rescued this Swan after he was beat up by other Swans. In this photo he’s being released into a new lake location. He made a new Swan friend in less than five minutes, which was wonderful to see.
This big Kangaroo has suffered a facial injury, on the right hand side of his face. I am currently monitoring him every day and taking advice from Kangaroo Specialist vets.
I’ve been rescuing animals for decades so consequently I have thousands of animal rescue photographs. These photos are a small window into just dome of the species I work with on a daily basis.
