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.



Noah's Ark Rehabilitation Center - November 17, 2014

PEIVDF will be returning to Noah's Ark Rehabilitation Center in Locust Grove GA - just outside of Atlanta, on November 17, 2014.

We have a new patient on the roster -Tuffy, an American Black Bear. Tuffy is very lucky to have found his new home at Noah's Ark, and PEIVDF will be working on a couple of fractured canines. According to Noah's Ark, "Like most pet bears, he arrived overweight and fully declawed and exhibits stereotypical behaviors ( such as turning in circles, pacing, etc) due to long term stress and confinement. We are very happy about our new member and look forward to providing years of a blessed life for this magnificent creature." Well, PEIVDF are happy to help Tuffy live a happy and pain free life at Noah's Ark.

We will also be rechecking Frank, the Lemur, and Hambone, the Capuchin. We will also be working on several avian patients. This is your chance to learn "orthobeakics" from The Master - Dr. Peter Emily.

You'll be able to work closely with Dr. Emily and PEIVDF doctors on diagnosis and treatment for a number of avian patients. Noah's Ark will also be providing an in-depth behind-the-scenes tour of their wonderful sanctuary! Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity! Retail Value: Priceless, but the IRS requires that we assign a figure to it... so, $500.00.

To register for a spot, visit our How to Help/Donate Funds page, and scroll down until you see the photo of the Toucan. Add a spot or two to your bag, and check out. In order to attend, we'll need your completed VDWoB Worker Questionnaire. So, if you haven't already sent one in to us, please download the Word .doc HERE, complete it, save it, and email it back to us at:

Upcoming Missions: IN SCHEDULING

The Wild Animal Sanctuary - Early Spring 2015

PEIVDF will be returning to the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg CO likely some time in the Spring to work on lions being rescued from circuses in Peru by Animal Defenders International. Like Bolivia, Peru recently banned the use of exotic animals in circuses. ADI is currently in Peru rounding up all the animals for relocation to sanctuaries in country and abroad. The dates and the details of the patient list are as yet unknown, as the confiscation process is still on-going.
