We have to deal with unwanted pets coming to us on an almost daily basis. We can only cope with so many and so it is very hard for us when we have to say no, far too often. These pets are given up for many reasons, some genuine but increasingly many more are given up…
This young swan came from Sleaford, she is very weak and easily caught which is unusual for a swan. We have put her on antibiotics and are having to tube feed her twice a day.
Lulu was living on a lake at Nottingham University, she came to us very run down and weak.
We travel far and near to rescue these poor girls, this time is was a long trek down south to rescue another 110 hens, at their end of their short productive lives, we rescued a few of the tens of thousands going for slaughter, many going for pet food.
This young man was found clutching to a portacabin and probably separated from his mother when it was moved. We have hand reared him on special milk formula before introducing him to raw meat.
This category contains animals that we currently have in the sanctuary. These have been rescued by ourselves or members of the public. When they have recovered we release them when possible.
These three guys have joined our ever growing population of goats.
This drake was hit by a car and received injuries to his legs, beak, head and body. The main injuries are to the left leg and therefore he cannot stand.
Today this little cub came to us, very frightened and very dehydrated. After eating puppy food and lapping up loads of rehydration fluid, the cub has made a great start to recovery.
