Sponsor an Animal - Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY)

Sponsor an Animal

You can personally support a rescued animal in Bolivia from anywhere in the world. As a sponsor, you help animals at CIWY live happy, healthy lives, despite their traumatic pasts. Many volunteers form a special bond with specific animals and choose to continue sponsoring them from home. Whether you have visited the sanctuaries or not, consider supporting one of these magnificent animals. Every contribution helps.

How does it work?

Choose a rescued animal and start your special relationship!

Many of the animals cannot be released into the wild, either due to injury or because they are too dependent on human support from an early age. When their release is impossible, we provide them with an environment as similar as possible to their natural habitat. The animals receive large enclosures, diets formulated according to the specific needs of each species, individualized veterinary care, and daily environmental enrichment. This high level of care comes at a cost, and CIWY receives no government funding. We invite you to help by sponsoring an animal.

How much does it cost?

Choose to contribute US$10, US$20 or US$40 a month to sponsor the animal you have chosen. Your donation will go directly towards the care of your animal and others in his or her sanctuary.

What will you receive?

As a sponsor, you will receive:

  • an electronic certificate of sponsorship;
  • acknowledgement of your sponsorship on our website;
  • email updates on your sponsored animal, including current photos, twice a year; and
  • the personal fulfillment of helping to care for your favorite animal and contributing to the conservation of threatened wildlife.

Save on fees! Get a tax deduction!

If you are a Bolivian citizen and prefer to transfer money instead of using PayPal, please use our bank information and email us the name of animal you’d like to sponsor.

If you would like your payment to be tax-deductible in either Australia or the US, we are happy to process your payment through a different platform. Just send us an email and we’ll get you set up!
