ANIMAL CLINIC: RESCUE & REHABILITATION PROGRAM
Safarick’s Zoologico was created by animal lovers with the principal purpose of rescuing and rehabilitating animals that were injured, orphaned or rescued
SAVING ONE ANIMAL WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT THE WORLD WILL CHANGE FOR THAT ONE ANIMAL
SAFARICK'S ZOOLOGICO RESCUE & REHABILITATION PROGRAMAnimals are often delivered to the Animal Clinic by ANAM (The National Environmental Authority) when they are discovered in exotic animal trafficking, found injured on the road, orphaned in the forest or taken from owners that were not taking good care of their exotic pet. Any animal that comes to the zoo is first taken to the clinic for quarantine where they are placed under observation by the veterinarian and checked for injuries, diseases or illnesses. Once they are treated and are in good health, a decision is made whether the animal is ready to be released to the wild to live on its own.
Some animals that have been raised by humans and have not learned to care for themselves or are injured and unable to survive on their own are kept at Safarick’s Zoologico to join the rest of the animals that are an important tool in educating visitors about the wildlife on the Caribbean coast of Panama.
