Project Details

Small start-up animal sanctuary looking for volunteers to assist with care of cows and lemurs.

DART is 501c3 not for profit animal welfare organization currently volunteer based and dedicated to rescuing former domestic and exotic pets with a focus on prosimians and homeless cats. We were founded in April 2020 and are a start up animal rescue. Our philosophy is that by working with a network of zoo's, volunteers,  advocates, foster caregivers, local veterinarians, trainers and shelters, we will are able to rescue animals with behavioral challenges. Our goal is to provide these animals with behavioral rehabilitation to reduce stress in former exotic pets and to find a loving home for domestic pets.We are located in West Central Florida in the USA. Florida is a tourist friendly state with lots of attractions for anyone and the home of the world famous Disney World in Orlando as well as our endangered Manatee population. Florida has some of the best beaches in the world as well as a lot of beautiful Nature State Parks for hiking, biking and kayaking. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers that don't mind lending a helping hand and assist with projects to help us save more animals in the near future. Our focus remains on lemurs but we also have plans to expand our domestic/feral cat rescue and we have cattle on property as well. Volunteering with us is very rewarding, you are helping animals, learn about their care, what it takes to run a farm and obtain fluency in English in the process. Aside from assisting with projects, you will have the opportunity to explore Florida's offsite attractions and learn more about American culture in the heartland.

Social Impact

DART has been able to rescue several domestic cat, cattle and lemurs in the first year of our existence. We provide education about conservation of lemurs in the wild to the general public and behavioral research of captive lemurs for science. Our program is more than just working with animals and learning about them, we love the fact that through our program we can invite a diversity of people from all over the world to learn about the English language, American culture and to explore nature in our area in Florida. There are many conservation organizations in Florida, so we encourage our volunteers to explore off-site and learn about the fragile ecosystem in Florida. Our social footprint is still developing as we are in our first year, but as we grow we hope to achieve full assistance to the communities by taking in domestic and feral cats, spay/neuter and adopt to reduce the over population of roaming cats. We currently already assist people and sanctuaries that need help with lemurs that were kept as pets and can no longer be cared for by their owner. We also have the ability to assist with rescue of farm animals that can no longer be cared for by their owners and provide the ability to take the stress off when an owner faces hard times financially and is looking to place their animals in a safe and healthy environment.
