If your children would like to learn more about any of the animals that we have here please get in touch. I have done two years of my Education Studies degree (going back in September for my final year) and have experience of public speaking and workshops, both regarding animals. Each week I will have a certain amount of slots where I can video call (or phone if you don’t have Facebook) you and your children to talk to you about whatever animals you want to, I’ll even try to show you some of the animals that we have here! Next week I have 2 half hour slots, it should be more the week after. Just send me a message on our page or text me on 07854 833706 and we can arrange a time. Please tell anyone who might be interested, especially if they don’t have Facebook!
(If I run out of slots for next week I promise I will do my best to fit you in the week after)

Due to the coronavirus the amount of pets being dumped has increased dramatically so we have decided to open our doors to all domestic animals for the time being. (Excluding birds due to Jenny’s health condition) We are going to be picking up animals for people who cannot or who do not want to bring them to us for as long as it is safe to do so but due to Jenny’s lung condition we are preparing to start self isolating soon. We are looking for people to volunteer to pick up animals if we are unable to from the persons home or at a pre arranged location and bring the animal to us in Waltham Abbey. All volunteers will need to be over the age of 18 and have their own transport. We will not allow anyone who is included or lives with anyone who is included in the ‘at risk’ group against the coronavirus. Volunteers will also need to show themselves as being judgement free. We just want to ensure that as many animals are safe during this pandemic as possible. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please ring Emma on 07854 833706. Please do not message us on here or email us about becoming a volunteer as we have very limited access to the internet at the moment.

We're back!

I am so sorry that we have been so quiet on here. Jenny has been unwell for sometime and in the end she ended up being taken to hospital where she stayed for 9 days. It turns out she has hypersensitivity to birds and as a result got double Pneumonia. Thankfully she got out the day before Christmas eve. We have now reopened to foxes/fox cubs and badgers/badger cubs. The reason behind us opening to these animals first is because if it fox cub season and they need more help than other wildlife overall. We will reopen to other mammals when Jenny gets stronger and we, as a family, are able to look after more wildlife. Unfortunately we cannot take in birds anymore due to Jenny's condition. Instead, please take any injured or abandoned birds to another wildlife rescue or your local vets. Feel free to contact us for anymore information about this.

Over the next few weeks I am going to update this blog and fill you all in on what we have been up to and our new full time residents.
