Do you remember the two Serval (Leptailarus serval) kittens we introduced you to a few weeks ago? They were found in the Standerton area with no sign of their mother and in a very compromised state. Dr Amelia Swart of Standerton Animal Hospital stabilised them and they were transferred to our facility for treatment and rehabilitation.
They have made a full recovery and, as part of their rehabilitation process, have been introduced to natural prey items. The two young serval have recently been relocated to a pre-release enclosure in a safe reserve which offers them suitable habitat. This is where they will be slowly introduced to the area and become acclimatised to their new territory.
We treat indigenous animals free of charge, relying solely on the donations and support of our community.
