International Animal Rescue Saving animals from suffering around the world

Baby Orangutan Gito is up for Adoption

Baby orangutan Gito was left to die in a cardboard box in Borneo, and our latest video shows that he has been transformed beyond recognition by the treatment and care from our team in Indonesia. Gito was filmed at our Rehabilitation Centre in Ketapang, West Borneo. Our vets and carers work round the clock to save the lives of orphaned orangutans like Gito that are victims of deforestation and the recent fires devastating the forests.

Now, less than two months after his rescue, Gito is looking healthy, happy and alert – and even sporting two fine front teeth!  He may not yet be as hairy as he should be, but his skin is smooth and supple and there are definite signs that his coat is growing. 

In recognition of Gito’s improved state of health, and as a thank you for all the support we have received so far, we have added Gito to our list of orangutans available for virtual adoption! All of our adoptions come with an 'adoption pack'. The pack is a small thank you for your support. It also serves as a proud reminder of the animal you are helping to care for, with a photo for display, a fact sheet and exclusive updates on your chosen animal's progress.
