Terms and Conditions

for Donation Payments

My Wildlife Rescue, from now on referred to as ‘us’ or ‘we’, is a not-for-profit wildlife rescue.

We operate the website www.mywildiferescue.org, from now on referred to as ‘the Website’.

These Terms and Conditions govern each use you make of the donation payment services provided through the Website. They apply separately to each single donation. However, except as provided for in section 5, ‘Regular Donations’, and unless specified by you, they do not form a contract allowing for future or successive transactions to be set up. When you make a donation using this Website you are agreeing to these Terms and Conditions for that donation.

1.  The donation services


My Wildlife Rescue accepts contributions, gifts or grants at our discretion. We will not accept any gift unless it can be used or expended consistently within our purpose and mission. Therefore, we will use your donation at our discretion but within our stated wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release objectives. 

My Wildlife Rescue will accept donations of cash or publicly traded securities.   We also gratefully accept gifts of some in-kind services.

My Wildlife Rescue will review certain gifts, real property, personal property, in-kind gifts, non-liquid securities, and contributions whose sources are not transparent or whose use is restricted in some manner prior to acceptance.  This is due to the special obligations raised or liabilities such donations may pose for My Wildlife Rescue

We will not accept an irrevocable gift, whether outright or life-income in character, if under any reasonable set of circumstances the gift would jeopardize the donor’s financial security.

Payment Provider

Our payment services provider is PayPal. All payments through the Website are to be made by PayPal.

PayPal will process your transaction once you confirm through the Website that you wish to proceed with your donation. When you confirm that you wish to proceed with your donation you authorize PayPal to request funds from your credit or debit card provider. 

We also accept donations by cheque, cash and e-transfer. Please Contact Us to make arrangements for these kinds of donations.

Tax Advice

My Wildlife Rescue will refrain from providing advice about the tax or other treatment of gifts.  Consequently, we encourage donors to seek guidance from their own professional advisers to assist them in the process of making their donation. 


My Wildlife Rescue will provide acknowledgments to donors thanking them for their donation. Except for gifts of cash and publicly traded securities,, we will not ascribe any value to any receipt or other form of substantiation of a gift we receive.


2.  Unauthorized card use

If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider. 

3.  Information from you

Information You Provide

Before we can process a donation you must provide us with

(i) your full name and email address; and

(ii) details required for your PayPal transaction.

We will use this information to process your donation and it is your responsibility to ensure you have provided us with the correct information.

Our Website will transfer the payment details you provide to our payment provider PayPal. Then PayPal will collect and process your payment data. As a result, you should familiarize yourself with PayPal’s terms and conditions. Consequently, you will be able to ensure you are comfortable with how they will process your personal data before you make a donation. Please note that PayPal’s terms and conditions are different from our own.

We won’t share your personal details with any other third party other than is set out in our Privacy Policy. Additionally, our Privacy Policy forms part of these Donation Payment Terms and Conditions.  Therefore, by agreeing to these Terms and Conditions you are also agreeing to the way we use and protect your personal information in line with our Privacy Policy. 

Anonymous Donors

My Wildlife Rescue will respect the intent of the donor relating to gifts for restricted purposes.  Additionally we will respect those donors wishing to remain anonymous. With respect to anonymous gifts, we will restrict information about the donor to only those staff members with a need to know.

4.  Refund policy

If you make an error in your donation please Contact Us within fourteen (14) days and a full refund will be made to you. 

5.  Regular donations

When you set up a regular donation you will be scheduling a series of donations. These donations will be made on the day of the month that you choose until further notice. Additionally, you agree that these Terms and Conditions will apply to each of the donations in that series.

Once you confirm you wish to proceed with a regular donation you authorize our payment service provider PayPal to request the funds. Consequently, PayPal will request these funds from your credit or debit card on the day of each month that you set. 

Please Contact Us to cancel your regular donation.


6.  General
