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.

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.

Ready to volunteer?

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!
