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.

Sadly we can confirm that we are dealing with a confirmed case of Equine Influenza in Aberdeenshire.
The horse was intended to join Millbuie Livery Yard but has been at their isolation facility since transportation. Thankfully, their isolation is several miles from the main yard with no nearby contacts.
As she was a young, recently imported horse she has only had her first vaccine, and was diagnosed on a routine swab this afternoon.
She will remain in isolation until she has the all clear.
This situation has highlighted to us all how very important gold standard isolation and vaccination is. Thankfully at the start of this year, due to the flu outbreak, Millbuie took our advice to isolate over a mile from the main yard, as flu can spread by air. As she is on a separate premises, their liveries can continue as normal.
We hope that the equine community in the North East will appreciate their honesty and diligence in dealing with this case. This is a situation anyone could find themselves in.
If you have any questions or concerns about equine flu or vaccination please do not hesitate to contact us on 01224740700.

UPDATE ON GULL TRAPPED IN NETTING

Henry the gull was brought to us trapped in and injured by netting from a hospital roof a couple of weeks ago with a bleeding wing, feather damage and a badly injured right thigh. His right leg was stuck in a bad position with his foot poking through his right wing feathers.

Thankfully after a lot of physiotherapy his leg has begun to move back to a normal position. His right foot is splinted to hold it at the right angle for now. It is not quite there yet but we hope he will continue to improve.

Funding crisis!

Due to several unusually large bills in the last few months, we are having a bit of a funding crisis.

We rarely ask for financial help, as we appreciate the people would much rather buy specific items for the animals in our care, and we understand this and really, genuinely, appreciate every item we receive, as it frees up money to be spent in other areas. However, running a rescue costs a massive amount of money every month, and a few unexpected bills do always cause a bit of a worry.

If you enjoy reading our updates, and hearing the news of the animals we take in, please consider making a donation, however small, to help us out.

We have had several vets bills for horses recently which were priorities. There is always a juggle and emergencies come first, but everything needs paid.

We still have one female cat to have spayed, three dogs needing spaying, one needing his dew claws removed, one needing an ECG to check on her heart. None of these are urgent, but still need to be done, and when emergencies come forward they have to take priority of course, which means other things have to wait longer. This is on top of constant feed, general vet bills and treatments, improvements and replacement items needed for the centre.

We would really appreciate some help – can you spare the cost of a summer ice-cream or a tube of sun cream? We do have a PayPal account if anybody would like to make a donation online – just click on the “Donate” button at the bottom of this page.

All donations, whether in time spent volunteering, being one of our animal collection team, goods purchased for use for the animals and support for our Charity shops is so welcome, but the fact is we also need cold hard cash.

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!
