It feels very much like Spring has arrived at the Sanctuary and the blackbirds are making a return. A few years ago we had a little blackbird called Perry. He stayed in our care for a while and was released from the centre. Perry was quite a character and loved to entertain. Some of you may remember him? Perry eventually left us for the winter but each spring since a little blackbird returns with that same cheeky character bringing a girlfriend with him. It's a lovely to think it could be Perry.🧡💙💛
Went for a walk to poolsbrook park, Dougie's mates said get well soon. They send their regards 👍

PETPLAN ANIMAL CHARITY TEAM OF THE YEAR! To be nominated for an award like this has lifted our spirits at the Pet Samaritans especially after such a difficult year we have all had with covid.
With so much uncertainty over the last few months, we have been very worried for the future of the sanctuary. Our fund raising events have all been cancelled and adoptions have been put on hold again during lockdown. The nomination has really boosted morale for us here at the animal sanctuary and wildlife rescue center. The certificate couldn’t have arrived at a better time. The smiles from the team were huge.🧡💙💛
Currently all birds must be checked for signs of Avian flu by a veterinarian before coming to the centre. Thank you to everyone that has worked with us to follow procedures and keep our birds safe. ... See MoreSee Less
Merlin was brought to us by the lovely Sarah from Cherished Pet's and Equine's in Pontefract this week after being checked over by Staveley Vets for signs of Avian flu.
Merlin has damage to one wing but despite his injury is feeling fit and well. He is definitely living up to his name and using his wizarding powers to remove every type of bandage/wing support we have tried. He's such a character and full of mischief.
Merlin will stay with us until he has full use of both wings once more and will then be released back to the wild. This process can take several months of experienced care to make sure the wing heals correctly.
If you would to support our work please consider a donation. There are lots of ways you can help..🧡💙💛
