Sanctuary life at the Pet Samaritans animal sanctuary
Sally and Dennis are just two of many hedgehogs in our Wildlife hospital currently. Both are very small and  were found out during the day looking unwell.
The extreme weather conditions are playing havoc with wildlife, and it's having a significant negative impact on juveniles trying to make it on their own.

Have you noticed wildlife struggling this year?

There's are lots of ways to support our work. Visit our website for more information or pop in to see us.

The Uplifting Symbolism of the White Dove

White doves are thought to bring peace and good fortune. A symbol of hope and renewal, the dove has often been associated with messages of harmony and the promise of a brighter tomorrow. Its presence in various cultural and spiritual contexts highlights its enduring significance as a messenger of peace and a symbol of compassion and unity.

We have many doves that have chosen to make the Pet Samaritans and Wildlife Angels their home. They love our garden. It's nice to think their presence has a significant meaning.πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ’›

🎬 - breakfast time for the resident white doves.

Wow, what a day!β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ
We thought we'd time travelled and woken up in November this morning. Lots of very cold and wet wildlife needed our services today. Also, several birds arrived with injuries caused by vehicles. Visibility has been so poor at times due to the rain.

Another release day today. This time, it was a group of pigeons. They have all come in with various injuries over the last few months and have healed well. Filming them proved a challenge, though, as they all flew off in different directions! 

Please support us and help keep the centre open.

Another successful duckling release today. 22 this time! 
They all came to us as tiny little ducklings. Many of this group were rescued from the courtyards at Chesterfield Royal Hospital. Ducks have been making their nests in the courtyards for years, but sadly, the ducklings are being picked off by predators soon after hatching.πŸ€πŸ¦… 
We've saved hundreds of ducklings from the courtyards over the last few years. Project 'Royal Ducklings' has been a huge financial commitment for the sanctuary, but hopefully, the help has been appreciated.

Baby Kestrels.πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’™
These nestlings were brought to us after the tree that was housing their nest was cut down. The tree surgeons doing the work had checked the nest and were convinced the nest was empty. On arrival, the young Kestrels were extremely weak and dehydrated, suggesting they hadn't been fed for some time. They wouldn't have survived without intervention.
Maybe this is why the tree surgeons missed them? What happened to the parents? So many questions.
Our team will do their best to rear them and get them ready for release. 

If you would like to support their care, please consider a donation. 
Or become a Wildlife Angel Member and enjoy being part of our ever growing community.

Wildlife Help and Guides

Wildlife rescue guides for frequently asked questions

Our wildlife rescue service in runs throughout the year. Our mission is to help rehabilitate wildlife and hedgehogs before releasing them back into the wild. If you would like to support wildlife, you can help by becoming a Wildlife Angel. Join us every Thursday and Saturday at our Wildlife open days to learn about hedgehogs, wild birds and caring for injured wildlife.

Promoting animal welfare is a big part of sanctuary life. Through schools, home education groups and local communities, we promote animal welfare, care and wildlife awareness.

We offer an emergency pet care service and lifetime care for pets when owners can no longer look after them. Many of our rescued animals are unsuitable for re-homing. Safe at Last, they stay with us for life.

Leave a Legacy to the animals – Running an animal sanctuary requires a huge amount of resources and a legacy to the Pet Samaritans would ensure we have enough funds to continue our work and help all animals, great and small, in our care. If you are thinking of leaving us a legacy and would like us to look after your pets, please get in touch with us to make arrangements for them and we’ll send you out our legacy pack.

Our Pet bereavement line on 07872 421878 is open everyday for owners who have lost a pet. It can be hard coming to terms with the loss of a friend and we are hear to help.

We operate all year round and accept admissions from across the UK. Please telephone first to chat to one of the team and make an appointment.
