About Us

About Our Shelter

We rescue, rehabilitate and release animals back where they belong – their natural habitat.

Our goal is the preservation of Australia’s wildlife and natural environment.

We will continue working to become a self sustaining organisation operating out of a state-of-the-art facility. We will support the community, educate the public and build relationships to ensure no unnecessary harm comes to native animals. 

Our work is vital. At Mosswood we receive no ongoing government funding to operate. We rely on the generosity of our extended community to fund our daily operations. This includes the feeding, medical treatments and essential care that takes place every day at our centre. All donations made to Mosswood Wildlife over $2 are tax deductible.




What We Do

Rescue Wildlife

Rescue and care for sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife, including in times of emergency. We are the voice of the voiceless, working with relevant authorities to advocate on behalf of the wildlife.


We work with relevant Councils and Shires to promote urban forests, maintain and increase green corridors for the benefit of current and future generations of wildlife.


Provide the best possible rehabilitation in a natural environment. One that provides for each animal’s specific needs for optimum preparation for their return to the wild.


Our objective is for all Mosswood guests to be returned to the wild. We will do everything we can to give them the freedom and dignity they deserve.


All animals in images throughout the website have received care from Mosswood.


How can I donate?

The easiest way to donate to Mosswood Wildlife is via our donation page. We can also accept cheque and direct deposit. Please get in touch if you require our account details.

Where do my donations go?

Donations made to Mosswood Wildlife will go directly toward the care of wildlife in need. The treatment that each animal requires can be extremely costly, as are the day to day costs associated with running a facility of this scale.

$20 will pay for 1 course of antibiotics a koala needs after being victim to dog attack.

$50 will pay for the food one sea bird requires for the duration of their stay at Mosswood

$100 will allow Mosswood to give an injured animal pain relief and fluids while we administer life saving care

Are my donations tax deductible?


Mosswood is a registered charity with DGR status. Upon receipt of your donation we will issue you a tax deductable receipt and a letter of thanks.
