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.

THE NEW ARC

Officers are appealing to the public for information after a 12 year old pony was injured in the Shivas area of Ythanbank near Ellon.

The incident is understood to have happened between around 4.30pm on Friday, 30 November, and 11am on Saturday, 1 December.

Following initial enquiries and consultation with veterinary experts it is understood that the pony, a white Connermara/Highland cross pony, was deliberately harmed.

PC Alan Mitchell, who is leading the enquiries, said: “Enquiries are ongoing to establish what has happened to the horse but I would appeal directly to any neighbours or residents in the area who may have seen anything unusual or suspicious around the time this happened to contact us.

“The horse suffered an 18 inch cut across its left hand side which required urgent medical attention and 28 stitches.

"I would urge anyone with information in relation to this cruel act to come forward and let us know. This incident has caused significant stress to the owners of the horse, which is now recovering.

“We have not received any reports of similar incidents in the area but I would urge horse owners to check their animals regularly and report anything unusual to police.

“Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting reference number CF0298951218.”

Herring gulls have a bad rep but we love them here at The NEW ARC. Weakened ones are often gentle with us when they can sense that we are trying to help them, such as this one who was very (and still is a little) concussed from being hit by a car last week.

He is around 1.5years old and will only eat by being handfed at the moment.

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!
