Please Note :-

The mascara wand appeal is now closed, we have thousands and thousands of them, which will last us for many years to come.  Thank you to all who sent, whether single ones or packs of several hundred – sorry we do not have the time to reply to each and every one.


Register as an animal ambulance

Would you like to volunteer your services as an animal ambulance for your area?

As and when we need someone to transport a sick or injured animal to The New Arc, we query our database of registered drivers and try to contact the nearest available volunteer to the patient.

The New Arc is based near Ellon, in Aberdeenshire. For an interactive map of where to find us, tap here.

What’s the commitment?

There is no commitment! We gratefully accept your offer to help if you are available at the time of asking. If you’re not available when called upon, that’s absolutely fine – we will try to contact another driver. It’s important to get as many volunteer drivers into our database as possible, so if you have family, friends, or neighbours who may be willing to help out, please do point them in the direction of this page!

Do volunteer ambulance drivers get paid?

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to offer any financial incentive, nor cover any expenses.
