Our Animal handling sessions can be booked exclusively for your group or made up of smaller groups that share the fun of meeting and learning about the animals.
You get the option to handle a variety of snakes, lizards, tortoises and insects whilst learning about them at the same time. We understand that some people are nervous or unsure about certain animals and we are very patient with people of all ages.
These experiences take place at the Animal sanctuary and therefore you can choose to look around afterwards and see animals that are impossible to take to offsite events (small surcharge applies)
We come to you with a selection of animals to your home, event, party or other function.
We have attended schools, nursing homes, fetes, charity events, social events and even prisons! We tailor the presentation to the age and experience of the people taking part.
We understand that some people are less comfortable than others with certain animals and we are very patient with everybody and we want to ensure you all have an enjoyable time.
We will speak with you in advance and select a range of animals to suit the people that will be taking part. It’s not every day you get to meet exotic animals!
We have now launched an adoption scheme, we have no funding other than our own fundraising. This is due to the fact that a rescue costs a lot of money to run. This service has been launched to help us raise additional funds which in turn will help us to help more animals. Any funds raised will allow us to look after our resident animals that are unable to be rehomed due to ongoing medical issues or aggression. This is so important as none of this is the fault of the animals.
ANIMAL ADOPTION PACKAGE 1 – £20.00 – For this you will receive an adoption certificate and a photograph of your chosen animal.
ANIMAL ADOPTION PACKAGE 2 – £35.00 – For this package you will recieve an adoption certificate, photograph of your chosen animal, a keyring and a visit to see your adoptee.
Whenever possible we try to allow for some interation with the animals when you visit but this cannot be guaranteed as it depends on treatment being given etc.
We get contacted on a regular basis in relation to a wide variety of animals that for whatever reason their current owners are unable to continue looking after.
We do also come in to find animals left outside our building (in boxes) or we are contacted by members of the public (or veterinary practices) to ask for help with animals that have been found abandoned. Sadly this is quite a common occurrence.
Wherever possible we take in any animal that requires a new home, if we do not have space for the animal we will suggest alternative rescues to contact or assist by asking our Facebook followers to foster the animals until we secure a permanent home.
We rely heavily on donations. If you like what we do please DONATE !
If you have any questions on our prices please don’t hesitate to contact us
Every visitor we get at the sanctuary helps us continue to look after the animals that are in our care. The same goes for our Viaduct visits service.
