Urban Safari Rescue Society was conceived from Cinemazoo Animal Agency, which has been operating since 1988. In 2007 Gary Oliver realized it was more important to educate people and conserve animals in this changing world. So he began Urban Safari.
Urban Safari Rescue Society is dedicated to the rescue, care and maintenance of exotic and other animals, and to provide education through lectures, in-house courses and outreach programs for adults and children, using exotic animals rescued from the pet trade industry, illegal breeders, smugglers, and with those animals who have been abandoned or neglected.
2010 continues to be a tough year for Urban Safari Rescue Society. We are always taking in unwanted animals, and because of this our costs for feeding and care are on the rise.
With the current economy and other occurrences we are struggling to keep giving the kind of care these animals need.
We would like to continue to educate people on these animals and their proper place on this planet but donations are needed to give these unwanted animals the food, care and shelter they deserve.
So we are sending out a heart felt plea for donations of any kind whether it, be money or products, such as food, water bottles, cages, office equipment or supplies, land Etc.
Every donation will be greatly appreciated and will receive a tax receipt for your generosity.
Please find it in your heart to donate now and make a difference, so we can continue to provide for these unwanted animals, and education for our children and their future.
Our goal is to develop a facility dedicated to education for future generation and preservation of wildlife worldwide.
For how you can help please contact us at 604-531-1100 or email us @ zoo 'at' shawbiz.ca
Urban Safari Rescue Society is dedicated to the rescue, care and maintenance of exotic and other animals, and to provide education through lectures, in-house courses and outreach programs for adults and children, using exotic animals rescued from the pet trade industry, illegal breeders, smugglers and with those animals who have been abandoned or neglected. Our expert, Gary J. Oliver, has been involved in this field for 20 years now in the Lower Mainland, and we are privileged to have him on our Board.
Some of the animals we rescue may be near the bottom of the life chain but, without them, all other forms of life as we know it would slowly disappear. Saving these animals provides us with a unique opportunity to use them as living ambassadors in our educational programs. Teaching people about preservation and conservation is a priority especially with the realization of today's world of global warming, vanishing habitats and species.
To rescue, care for and maintain the health of rescued exotic and other animals.
To educate children and adults on the various species and their importance to our environment, the need for conservation, and the responsibilities of exotic animal ownership.
To provide public awareness of conservation efforts in place to protect and conserve the various species in our care and to appeal to the public to take an active role in our efforts.
Our long range plans are to build a much larger facility that is easily accessible to all ages, situated on enough land to expand the number of our ambassadors in a more natural habitat. It would also allow zoology students and biologists the opportunity to study wildlife and share their knowledge with others so we may better care for and understand the animals' needs in captivity and in the wild.
On January 23, 2007, Urban Safar Rescue Society was established as a non-profit Registered Charity in British Columbia. We rescue, care for and maintain the health of exotic animals including birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles and other small animals. When possible we find good informed homes for them, rehabilitate them for release into the wild, or they become animal ambassadors in our educational presentations done through schools, corporation and community events.
Urban Safari Rescue Society's residents are a living library of exotic creatures, who provide vast learning opportunities for visitors of all ages. Our 'by appointment only' Tours provide access to a wider variety of animals up close than most people would see in the untamed regions of our world on their own travels.
Through our various programs the public learns why some animal species are endangered or facing extinction, as well as what conservation efforts are being put in place to protect and conserve them and their habitats. We are able to appeal to the public to take a more active role in conservation of wildlife and wild habitats, whether through seeking donations, or through the use of revenue generated through tours, career school, and our gift shop, and by supporting other wildlife organizations in our communities.
Our Board of Directors include Gary Oliver, owner and operator of Cinemazoo Animal Agency for over 20 years. Gary brings his expertise in the field of exotic animals to our educational presentations and events throughout the Lower Mainland; providing birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles and other small animals at birthday parties, presentations at schools and organizations, as well as petting zoos and information booths at various community events. Gary knows that if we lose these animals and their habitats, through global warming, industry and urban sprawl, we will also lose important ecological foundations in the process. Gary shares our goal in providing education and working to save these animals for future generations. For more information on Cinemazoo Animal Agency please see their website at www.cinemazoo.com.
Other Directors are Sandy Stranges, Yuki Chippendale, Donna Creamore and Len Goosen (general accountant). Urban Safari Rescue Society has ongoing need for volunteers to run Tours, care for the animals, maintain the facilities, administrative duties, webmaster, and public relations. If you are interested in participating in our efforts, please call us at 604-531-1100 .
To help us in our education, preservation and conservation efforts, we have a number of Programs to choose from. Check our Programs page for information on becoming a much needed Volunteer, on animals we have available for Adoption, or how you can Sponsor an animal, become a Member or to simply Donate to our cause. We have also compiled a Wish List of items we need for operating our facility and caring for the animal residents. We are sure you will find a way to help us, that suits you and your lifestyle! We thank you in advance.
