Baby Aardvark Rescue

This baby Aardvark was found during one of our camel safaris on Aug. 28th. This morning I took him to the vet for an x-ray after sleeping with him in the same bed. He has a broken leg and rib. The leg surgery on Thursday will be long says Dieter Rottcher the leading wildlife vet here. We just hope he will make it till thurs….

    I am thankful at the blessed luck that found you to this small life in need.

  7. Crossing fingures hang on little guy. I didn’t understand in what condition did you find him and what do you think happend to him?

  8. If he is in Dieter’s hands he has a great chance of surviving – Dieter is the greatest vet! He saved my dogs life when we lived in Kenya – she ate a poisoned lion bait and was given a 5% chance of surviving – she is almost 15 years old and still going strong – all thanks to Dieter!!!

    What an adorable, but sad looking creature. So happy that you were able to help him. Let’s hope he’ll make it. I’m also sending you a donation and hope it will help even a little bit for you to know that we all appreciate the work you do.

    Pirjo and Aileen
    very kind of you to help us with his surgery. It is supposedly going to cost us well over 700$ so every bit of help is greatly appreciated. He is at the vet now and I just hope he will be ok. I’m afraid ive gotten quite attached.
    cheers, Jamie
