Animals in Lifetime Care: We have pledged to provide lifetime care for a few animals that can never be released back into the wild due to physical disabilities and grievous wounds, such as our primates which have lost limbs and eyesight. Lifetime Adoption of these will aid us greatly. PfA currently houses 1 blind Indian Flying Fox, 3 Brahminy Kites, 11 Black Kites(fractures, crippled), 11 Bonnet Macaques(crippled, blind), 1 blind Indian Rat Snake.
*Proper wildlife rehabilitation is an extremely biologically and ecologically responsible attitude toward all living things.*
