Many of you have asked how you can help the animals. We are so glad that you understand they still have to be fed and cleaned every day. We greatly appreciate donations to help us continue to buy fresh produce and meats for the animals. Any amount is appreciated and tax deductible. Please see the donation button below. Thank you!
Chestatee Wildlife Preserve is home to over 100 exotic and native animals. These animals are rescued due to being orphaned, abused, illegally purchased or just in need of a forever home.
You can help us feed the animals by donating fresh fruits, vegetables and meats!
Examples of canned foods: potatoes, green beans, carrots, salmon, pumpkin, chick peas, pitted black olives, tuna, chicken, sliced beets, artichoke hearts, kidney beans, cranberry sauce, pears and peaches.
Examples of fresh produce: Kale, greens, corn on the cob, peaches, grapes, bananas, strawberries, blue berries, apples, oranges and pineapples. We always need peanut butter, jelly, raisin bread, beef and chicken!
Toddler toys are always needed for the little monkeys!
Do you have a working golf cart you would like to donate for a tax deduction? Call us!
Please note that we are smoke free. No smoking is allowed anywhere on the Preserve including the parking lot. Cigarette butts are deadly to our animals!
