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.

On 31st May two lovely ladies arrived - with a badger in the boot of their car (not something we would necessarily recommend!).
However, this young male had been found in the road, and was completely comatose.
We took him in, assessed him, and could find nothing broken, but there was no real response from him either - only his eyes were working!
He received appropriate care and medication, and little by little we could see small improvements, although he needed syringe fed, and helped to move on to eat from a bowl. We were concerned whether his apparent brain damage would be permanent, and had many discussions with our vets
One morning however, I thought he was having me on … he had moved a fair bit during the night and I suspected he was getting active at night once we were away, saving his totally helpless act for daytime pandering! - so the trailcam was set. Ha - caught in the act, badger was promptly named DODGER!
Ok, he was still very wobbly and confused, but a huge improvement. He was however the most terrified, nervous badger we have every come across, so needed gentle quiet handling.
It wasn't too long before Dodger was eating for himself and was able to move more easily, so he was next transferred to an outdoor pen and shed
He continued to improve and then abandoned his cosy bed in the shed, for a newly dug out den UNDER it …. it was time for him to go home
On release back to the exact place he was found, he had a bit of trouble with a gate ….. panic got the better of him I think - he soon rushed off down the field towards a copse (scaring a deer witless in the process!)
Good luck Dodger - we're very proud of you for fighting so hard - have a safe, happy life

Catching up on some very late paperwork and thank you messages (not enough hours in the day sorry!)
Huge thanks to all who took part in this year's Aberdeen Kiltwalk - we have just received notification that we have received a whopping £943.53 - how fantastic is that - thank you all so much <3
The second and another absolutely stunning fundraising amount is for £430 raised by FRED at the Companion Dog Show at Banchory. We are extremely grateful and hope all competitors had a great day - we would have loved to attend but sadly we just had too many baby mouths to feed to get away <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!
