The FreeMe Center is a rehabilitation center for indigenous wildlife in the north of Johannesburg.

A small crocodile, a black-bellied starling and an orphaned water mongoose are among animals that have found refuge in a South African animal shelter that seeks to help indigenous species, many of which live in city suburbs.

The rehabilitation center, FreeMe, is based in Johannesburg and helps some of the thousands of birds, animals and reptiles that become sick, vulnerable or suffer injuries in the suburbs and open areas outside the city. (Associated Press)
