Meet Ms. Montana!


PEIVDF provides their expert services - and the supplies required in the provision of these service - directly to the animals. That way, PEIVDF's efforts directly benefit each animal on which we work. Facilities as a whole do not receive direct monetary benefit from the provision of PEIVDF services.


Upcoming Missions: OPEN

Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary - November 21-22, 2015

PEIVDF will be returning the Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, GA on the weekend of November 21-22, 2015. The patient list currently includes 3 bears, a capuchin, and several birds. This is your chance to learn "orthobeakics" from the master - Dr Peter Emily.

PEIVDF is calling for 3 students for this teaching mission. This will be a small team, so it will be a great learning opportunity.

We also have room for 1 tourist on this mission. To find out about tourist spots, visit our Big 5 Benefactor page. Level 3 Leopard included one tourist spot.

If/once we have your completed questionnaire, email us and let us know you are interested in attending the Wildlife Waystation mission. The mission leader will then make decisions on attendees based on the doctors and instructors, as well as the final patient list.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary - UPDATE

The lions from Peru and Colombia being rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI) will not be coming to The Wild Animal Sanctuary (TWAS) as originally planned. ADI is currently working on the relocation of these animals, and as more is know, we'll let everyone know.
