Wildlife rehabilitation: We have many years experience hand-rearing orphan birds, and dealing with orphaned and injured mammals, with the intention to release them back into the wild when they are fit and able.



Since we started in 2006 we have rescued and rehabilitated over 16,000 animals and birds. We have a 24/7 service, offering advice and assistance, and an Animal Ambulance to take us out and about when we are able

🔨🐦 We need your help! We need some crafters to put together some hospital perches to keep our avian patients clean and stress free. We would require various dimensions and heights to fit smaller species such as doves as well as some larger ones for birds of prey. We would require the perches to be made of smooth splinterfree wood and heavy based to prevent birds from knocking it over too easily. Brumstick handles can work well for example.- The diameter of the perches would need to be somewhere between 1 and 3cm. - Perches height must allow birds to rest without their tails touching the ground therefore they would need to be between 10cm and 20cm high- Perches must fit in our hospital cages so would need to be about 20cm long for smaller diameter and 40cm long for larger ones. We would be very grateful for perches to be dropped off at our rescue centre based in Ellon 💚If you can help please drop us an inbox! ... See MoreSee Less
