Help us end the suffering of animals in Marghazar ZOO for GOOD
*** Update October 1st 2020 ***
Together with the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board (IWMB) we were already able to transfer 17 rabbits, 5 vervet monkeys, 2 rhesus abs, and 3 wolves to the Ayub Park in their new home with spacious enclosures. Will you help us save the remaining animals?
Animals are suffering in Marghazar ZOO, Pakistan; A Himalayan brown bear who has completely lost his teeth and needs urgent special care, monkeys who struggle to survive in extremely small cages. These are not the only animals suffering they join the long list of bears, wolves, deer, a lonely elephant and rabbits who are suffering daily due to extremely poor health care and inexperienced staff.
In 2016, FOUR PAWS assessed the establishment and recommended vast improvements of food and physical care of the animals as well as a veterinary training program and health treatment guidelines. However, the Zoo has consistently ignored FOUR PAWS’ recommendations, neglecting its animals, and leaving many to die. The Islamabad Supreme Court has ordered the immediate closure of the area and approved the relocation of all the animals. This is a huge milestone for the country, not only because of the fate of the animals in Islamabad zoo, but also because it will hopefully facilitate the promotion of more animal welfare policies in the future.
But, there is now a ray of hope for the animals who have managed to survive. This mission has to be fast, but together with the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board and your help today, we will be able to provide not only a new home for the Islamabad animals, but also all the care they have been missing: proper veterinary checks, spacious enclosures, food, clean water and a place to recover.
We can only do this with your support
