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.
For more information, including what we do, where we are, and how to contact us, please visit our about page.

We have a small area about 20 metres by 10 metres in which we would like to create a pond and butterfly garden. If any individuals or groups would be interested in taking this on as a project we would love to hear from you. ...
We took in this gorgeous Greater Spotted Woodpecker yesterday who had flown into a window and damaged a wing. He's eating well and pretty lively and we are hopeful he will recover well and be able to go back to the wild. Isn't he just stunning ...
Back on the 3rd November we took in a small hedgehog who had a leg injury. He has proved quite a challenge as his leg was so very infected as well as badly broken. He went into vets for investigation and the amount of stinking foul puss that came out nearly cleared the surgery. Unfortunately poor hedgie wasn't clear of his infection and a large abscess burst through his back a couple of weeks later, so more antibiotics were required At last we got the infection cleared and yesterday he went into surgery and had his broken leg removed As yet it hasn't improved his temper as he bit me today lol. He is one of the grumpiest hedgies we have had, but that's hardly surprising On the mend at last thank goodness thanks to Glenythan Vets ...
Thank you so much to everyone who has bought from our amazon wish list recently. Every day something exciting arrives and everything is so helpful to us and the animals in our care. A lot doesn't have names on so here are a few pics to show some of the great things that have arrived ...
One of the busiest animal rescue centres in the country is working overtime this winter to make sure its fluffy, furry and feathered residents are kept safe and sound against the threat of seasonal storms.
We were very grateful for all of the Christmas presents that the animals received this Christmas, and we have made a video showing as many of them as we were able to. This was all filmed on Christmas day showing the treats and meals which the animals received 🙂 ...
