About Kids Saving Critters
world through wildlife projects. Kids become
penpals, learn from each other and
become agents for world change.
Kids Saving Critters was started by 2 siblings, Rowan and Declan Heys. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, they now live in San Diego. They both love to travel the world and read. They also both love animals and share their home with 14 pets: 2 cats, 1 dog, 2 rabbits, and 9 chickens! Our journey started in Costa Rica with our family. There, we visited a wildlife rescue sanctuary called Kids Saving the Rainforest (which was started by 2 nine year-old girls!) where we saw lots of injured jungle animals. We saw monkeys that were electrocuted by climbing on uninsulated power lines and baby monkeys who were taken from their mothers (who were often killed) and forced into being pets. We decided to start our own non-profit group to help animals and Kids Saving Critters was born.
