These are the animals currently in our care. The tags below their pictures will tell you their current ‘status’.

In treatment – guests currently receiving extra care such as medication or hand feeding.
In Recovery – guests who have been poorly but are now recovering.
Under Assessment – pets we are getting to know or wildlife we are assessing for release.
Pre-Release – wild guests who are preparing to go back to the wild.
Reserved – pets who are reserved for their new home.
Adoptable – pets who are ready to start their new lives. Could you be their new family?

In Memory
