The ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC) is Singapore’s first centre dedicated to the rescue of wild animals- both animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade and native wild animals in need of help.
At the AWRC we provide a safe sanctuary for animals who have been rescued after being illegally brought into Singapore and sold/kept as pets. These animals are often found abandoned in parks and nature reserves, or are handed over to our care by owners- many of whom did not realise it was illegal to keep them as pets.
Our aim is to send these animals back to their country of origin as far as possible, to reputable rescue centres who may even be able to release them back into the wild one day.
At the AWRC we also provide temporary care to injured or sick native wild animals, until they are fit enough to be released back into the wild.
