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

The New Arcs aims are to rescue, rehabilitate and release birds and mammals back to the wild.   We have the facilities and experience to care for a wide variety of wildlife at our Centre.

Our Intensive Care unit houses many incubators, essential for “baby season”, and for those animals and birds that need a stable temperature and some extra care.

We have numerous aviaries and pens available for recuperation and to prepare our casualties before they are released back into the wild.

We are in the process of building a brand new, purpose built Accident & Emergency Unit for wildlife casualties.   This will provide a fantastic facility, giving us much more indoor space for our patients.













Our phone line is available 24/7 for emergencies, and we are always available to give advice.

Because our patients are wild we are not open to the public. We do not wish handraised young to become accustomed to seeing many people, as they may not learn to be fearful of people and they need to survive in the wild.
