About The New Arc

In  2005 The North East Wildlife & Animal Rescue Centre became an official Scottish Registered Charity.  Much has changed in this time, and the Centre has expanded, and the amount of animals we care for has grown and grown.

We are now focusing on our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, and every year we are busier than the last, with our success rates exceeding all expectations.  We believe that because we, as a team, see each and every bird and mammal as an individual, and have hands on every single day with them from the day they arrive, until the day they leave, gives consistency and every small detail is noted and every minor change noticed and monitored.

Living on site, we are available 24/7 every day of the year for any admissions of injured wildlife and for advice by telephone.

We are lucky to have a fantastic band of volunteers who help us at the Centre doing the “hands on, mucky jobs”, and a wonderful group of volunteers who support us at our shop in Ellon, working hard to raise funds for us, and our team is further supported by a fantastic network of volunteer drivers, who are all happy to pitch in and pick up and transport injured wildlife to us, leaving us free to deal with those already at the Centre

While we are not open to the public, we do try to find time to give those who bring in wildlife needing care a bit a “guided tour” and are happy to accommodate when we can visitors, by prior appointment.
