Each year, our recovery centre (CRUMA) takes care and recover over 3000 wild animals. For each animal we provide food, medical and surgical care, and rehabilitation facilities useful until the moment of the release.
The maintenance of such structures has a cost: every year, only for essential drugs, CRUMA spends about 5,000 €. Moreover, there are higher expenses necessary for the purchasing of food, surgical materials and for the maintenance of the facilities.
There are many ways you can help our centre:
We always need food for our animals! You can supply us with grains, food for insectivore birds, compounds for the weaning of nestlings, and cans or croquettes of cat's or dog's food (for mammals). In addition, we need medical equipment for the health and care of the animals: latex gloves, syringes, sterile gauzes, bandages, patches and similar tools.
