RESCUE

We have over 500 animals currently in our care. These animals come from many different places. Some have been pets that can no longer be looked after. Others have come to us from other rescue organisations or zoos. We also work with emergency services and customs taking animals that have been prosecuted. Due to licensing constraints, unfortunately, we can no longer have any of the exotic animals on display to visitors or members. We apologise for this and hope people will continue to support us.

 

Below is a list of the animals we care for at Wetheriggs.  Please note, many animals frequently arrive and leave the centre and the list may not always be 100% accurate.
