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

THE NEW ARC

We are currently trying our best to continue to provide a 24/7 service. Sadly this does not mean we can respond, in person, to every call we receive. In addition to dealing with the current situation, where we are short staffed and asking our volunteers to stay at home and stay safe, we are actually experiencing an increase in the numbers we are taking in this year in comparison to last year.
As a result, we are forced to prioritise between those we must respond to and those which can be safely delivered to us.
Early Friday morning we received a call about a trapped deer in Dyce Aberdeen. When we arrived it did not take long to realise that additional help was needed. The Adult Roe Deer buck had managed to jump the garden fence onto a sloping shed roof and had tumbled down between buildings ending upside down and trapped beneath the lower edge of a very heavy old shed.
Thankfully the Aberdeen Fire Brigade responded quickly.
With a catching loop secured around the deer’s antlers to restrain it the crew managed to remove any sharp nails and objects which could cause further injury and place inflatable bags at both front and back of the trapped deer until enough space was made for us to use the loop to get it upright and lead it out of, what would have been a fatal situation.
Once out, we quickly checked it over and other than a few scratches and scrapes it was deemed fit to be released as soon as it had recovered its balance.
A BIG Thank You to the Fire Crew involved who responded in their typical, professional ‘all in a day’s work’ fashion.
