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.

What a difference a year makes <3 Remember this fellow? We named him "Arbuckle" as he arrived weighing in at 2.335kg which we believe made him at that point in time the Worlds Heaviest Hedgehog.
Our Arbuckle became quite famous in his own right, appearing in numerous newspapers, news clips and even via Skype with Russian tv
Well …. he has worked hard at his diet and yesterdays "weigh in" showed he had reached 1.27kg, a loss of over 1 KG !!
It was time for Arbuckle to leave, time for him to hunt for his own food and hopefully find a mate.
We wish him luck and we will of course leave food and water out just in case he gets midnight munchies 🙂

Today we released 4 common gull babies who have been with us from only a few days old. (We also released another last week who had come in unable to walk!)
It was a fantastic release - all four went off flying and shouting, batheing and foraging for food. They were soon joined by adult gulls who will help them learn more skills for their new wild life 🙂 (video of release to come!)

Many of our volunteers, past and present will be sad to hear that our Ritzi made her final journey to the vets yesterday. She had battled through various health issues over the past couple of years, but she wasn't happy to continue trying. We shall all miss Ritzi as she was such a sweetheart, but none of us will miss her climbing our legs when she insisted on being cuddled - well actually, yes I think we'll miss that too <3 ...

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!
