The πŸ‡ baby boys πŸ‡ are on their way to Staveley Vets for neutering today.
Neutering is a big expense for the sanctuary but one that is essential to allow these boys to have companionship of other rabbits, something we feel is very important for their mental wellbeing.
You can donate securely towards our vet bills by following the link to our website.⬇️⬇️⬇️

We have lots of rabbits looking for permanent homes and can offer a bonding service if you are looking for friend for your rabbit. Call us on 01246 455777 or 07872 421878 for more information.☎️

Gulls pay a visit to the Sanctuary.
This week the team experienced something very special. Cally the young gull who came to us from Dronfield almost two month ago had grown up and was doing well. We had been discussing her release day earlier in the week and working out how best to approach it.
We don't usually have any gulls fly around the sanctuary but on Tuesday we suddenly heard a commotion in the sky and ran to check what was happening. There must have been at least 10 gulls circling high above us calling loudly. Cally then flew up to join them squeaking with delight. Her call is the high pitched one in the video. Then to surprise us even further, Dodgem (or Dodge him as we nicknamed him), an adult gull who had been found severely injured a couple of weeks after Cally at the fairground in Chesterfield joined them too! The whole experience lasted no more than 10 minutes after which the birds disappeared into the distance taking Cally and Dodgem with them. We have never experienced anything like this before. A real goosebump moment.πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ’™

πŸ“· The whole experience took us by surprise but thankfully we managed to get a bit of footage to share with you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Make sure to watch with the sound on.

Will found in a similar location to Cally. Hopefully both Will and Baby Steve will be collected by the Gulls when they are ready aswell.🀞

Baby Steve is still with us. He was taken to the vets by his finder as thought he had blood on him but turns out it was just red paint!

Dodgem (Dodge him) on arrival having his wing strapped up. He wouldn't let go of the teams arm so we had to cut the material. He didn't get his nickname for no reason.

Cally looking very grown up.

That's so good to see♥️

I watched them from up at the ark too 😍

Did they both fly off with them?..what a wonderful sight ❀❀

Steven wouldn't be happy he didn't like the other gulls that came last year invading his personal space πŸ˜‚

How amazing !! 😊

Wow, that's fantastic. It's comforting to know they are in good hands/wings!

Shouting her thanks as she left πŸ₯°πŸ₯° a great and satisfying moment for you, payment for all your hard work xx

I'm sure we heard this from up the hill! πŸ₯°

That’s so amazing πŸ˜€πŸ˜Š

fantastic story

Amazing

That's great to see well done to everyone concerned. Xx

Help us find Priscilla a family to call her own!
Priscilla the Young Ringneck Parakeet has been with us for 4 months and is now available for adoption. This beautiful lady has finally started to settle and is learning to trust humans much more which is wonderful to see. Priscilla now has a repertoire of 'nice' sounds and happy dances that she has learnt from her neighbour JJ the Senegal and our daft team (we love interacting with the birds!). When, however she is not sure about something she will growl like a dog to let you know. Priscilla is such a wonderful character who deserves to find her an experienced, permanent family to call her own. Priscilla could potentially live for 40years. Very much a long term commitment but worth it for the joy she will give her family in return.πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ’›

If you feel you have the space, time and experience to welcome Priscilla into your family please give us a call for more information.
Adoption fee applies.
Our phone lines are open 9am until 5pm 7days a week. 01246 455777 or 07872 421878

Edit: Please note we are not able to reply to adoption enquiries via messenger, text message or WhatsApp.

17 Swifts and counting.....
Ladies from the Totley Swift Group and the Tideswell Swift Group happened to turn up at the same time over the weekend with Swifts that needed our help and parked next to eachother. The ladies had communicated online but never met in person so were thrilled to finally meet.
We pride ourselves in the wonderful community that supports us and this chance meeting was a testament to that.πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ’›

The boys are booked in to be neutered this week. An essential procedure for a happy life. It will mean they can be paired up with another neutered male of a female. Aswell as stopping unwanted pregnancy, neutering also reduces the challenging behaviour that male rabbits will often exhibit otherwise making it difficult to find them a friend.πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ’›

Our current groups of swifts, with more booked to come in today. Group 1 are slightly younger than Group 2 and will inevitably be with us a little longer. Thank you to those who have donated towards our appeal for live feed a couple of days ago. The orders have started arriving to which we and the swifts are extremely grateful.πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ’› ...

Covid-19 Update ~ July 2021

Firstly a huge THANK YOU to all our supporters. The last year has been a worrying time but you have helped to keep our spirits up and the centre open.

We have carefully consider the implications of reopening the building to visitors after the latest government update and have come to the decision that in the short term, we will continue to operate our appointment system and ask you to wait in the car park on arrival. A member of the team will come to you. All wildlife emergencies will be booked in by your car and we ask that you continue to follow social distancing measures with our team.
Adoptions will continue on an appointment basis. We ask that masks are worn inside the building. If you are exempt from wearing a mask please let a member of the team know so that we can be considerate to your needs.

Please do not visit if you are unwell, have symptoms of Covid or have had a positive test in the last 14 days. The Test and Trace system means that should someone enter the center who is later diagnosed with coronavirus then regardless of social distancing, any team members who had been in contact with this person would be required to isolate. The result of this on the sanctuary doesn't bare thinking about.

We will continue to review our opening policy and update as things change.
