The North East Wildlife & Animal Rescue Centre is a small independent Charity, based just outside Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

We are a sanctuary and haven for many unwanted, abused and abandoned pets, including horses, goats, pigs, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, hens and ducks. Our particular interest is in wildlife rehabilitation, and we have many years experience in hand-rearing orphan birds, and dealing with orphaned and injured mammals.

THE NEW ARC

A big thank you to Kate Rochford for calling about a gull stuck in netting on a building in Fraserburgh. When we first attended we were convinced he was dead and we watched for around 10 mins. Just as we phoned Kate to let her know, he moved. Suddenly it was all stations go and as our ladder was nowhere near long enough we made a quick call to the wonderful team at Fraserburgh Fire Brigade who responded within minutes. Thank you so much for responding so quickly, and the gull is now back at the Centre in our care and we hope he will soon recover from his ordeal . ...

MORE CAT NEWS!!
We are delighted to be able to announce that work has now started on Phase I of the construction of the Wildlife A&E Unit. We have had to put a lot of additional infrastructure in, with a new electricity sub station and a new septic tank and water supply. However things are now moving apace at last!

THE NEW ARC

In October 2013, we received a call from a barge about to dock in Fraserburgh Harbour There was a cat onboard, a cat that wasn't there when they set off! This cat had presumably hopped on at some point up through the Caledonian canal, and hidden away.
Keith rushed up to see what could be done, and found poor puss hiding under a container - well what a scramble to catch her, all the while hoping she ran the right direction - not over the edge and into the sea!
One very angry cat caught and brought back to the Centre. We had hoped she was somebodys loved pet that had stowed away, but she was as wild as a wild thing and became our "fishyard feral" Sylvie.
She had a damaged eye which we got checked by the vet, and until just recently it didn't bother her at all. Sadly, the eye ruptured a couple of weeks ago and we had to make an emergency rush to the vets
Look how well Sylvie has recovered from having her "bad eye" removed - thank you Glenythan Vets for dealing with her so quickly and getting her home with us

THE NEW ARC

Today we got a call-out to a badger who was found stuck down a military 'foxhole' (basically a gun trench).

After a bit of a search we found him curled up and sleeping, clearly after a lot of unsuccessful effort to escape. He seemed weak at first but quickly perked up.
After a bit of work looping him well enough to lift him out of the hole he was deemed fit for release and could be released to go back to his sett. He was very lucky to fall into this particular trench as others surrounding it were flooded.

A big thank you to Amy for calling us out so that the badger could be freed.

Animal Hospital Fundraiser

Following storm Frank last year, when the centre suffered significant damage including our mobile home which housed many of our cats, The New Arc has received fantastic support from the general public. As a result, were able to provide a superb new home for all of our 38 resident cats.

Since then, we had a variety of projects continuing throughout the year, which will soon result in The New Arc being able to expand its rescue facilities significantly.

On April 1st (no fooling) we begin our 12th year as an official charity. During the past 11 years we have rescued over 7000 animals, ranging from domestic pets to exotics and, of course, our native wildlife. Our main concerns have always centred on wildlife and as we enter our 12th year we would like to focus on the needs of wildlife in particular.

Each year we accept hundreds of injured and orphaned birds and animals. We accept them all. Some are passed to us by the general public, some are passed to us by vets and other rescue centres. Some we refer on to our own vets, which may, in turn be passed on to specialist vets. No animal or bird is refused as a ‘pest species’ and every attempt is made to rehabilitate and release those who are fit to go.

As many of you will know, our own home has played host to a great many of the orphans we’ve taken in, meaning that throughout the coming spring we could be providing through-the-night care for several deer, squirrels, foxes and a variety of birds and other wildlife. However, year on year the numbers we take in are continuing to grow and we need to look ahead and plan to meet that growing need. Some of the animals we take in require extended stays at the centre to enable recuperation and allow us to equip them with the ability to fend for themselves once released.

As a result we are asking all our supporters to help us realise a dream that we had when we first set up The New Arc: To provide and equip a wildlife hospital specifically designed for wildlife care.

We have to be realistic and accept the fact that even the basics for such an ambitious project will require a huge amount of funding. As such, we have plans for a facility which would equip us to deal with all our first aid requirements, provide specialist housing and care for the increasing numbers of orphaned birds and mammals. We would also like to reach a position where we have the flexibility to expand if finances allow.

The more money we raise, the better the facilities we can provide. We have set an initial target of £30,000.00 – a huge amount! We already have some funds in place, specifically allocated to this project, which currently amounts to £7080.00.

This is a huge undertaking and we need help! We have a number of fund raising ideas in place and will announce details soon. We already appreciate the efforts our supporters and volunteers make on our behalf, so we are not asking anyone to send money (although we will not refuse it!). Instead, we are asking all our friends and supporters to think of ways that they can generate interest in our project, raise the profile of the work we do and come up with their own suggestions and fund raising ideas to discuss with us.

We have over 4000 likes on our Facebook page. If only one in ten of the people who like our page could raise £20.00 then we will reach our target. Please consider the huge impact this would have for our native wildlife and what it would mean for the work we do here at The New Arc.

Please continue to visit our website and follow our Facebook page. We look forward to keeping you all informed of our progress.

Kevin the Swan, Valentine the buzzard and an as yet, un-named tiny pigeon squab are just some of the wildlife casualties to have arrived at the centre in February.

We hope you enjoy our site! Please do to visit us again - we will be updating regularly.

If you have any questions about animals, be it advice, wanting to find a new home for your pet, adoption or needing assistance with a rescue, please contact us either by telephone (0796 225 3867), Facebook, or contact form.  We look forward to hearing from you!
