🦅Storm the Buzzard 🦅was found grounded in a field dazed and very wobbly with an injury to one eye. She was checked over by Spire Vets for signs of Avian flu before being admitted to our Wildlife Hospital. Weighing in at nearly 1.5kg this magnificent girl has definitely not been struggling to find food and her crop was quite full on arrival. Our worry was that Storm had eaten something poisonous but in the few days she has been with us her health has improved thankfully. Poisoning has been ruled out and its more likely she had a collision of some kind and was suffering from concussion.
We are keen to return Storm to the area that she was found if it is safe to do so as Buzzards form very strong bonds with their mates. If you took a Buzzard to Spire Vets on the 1st December 2021 please get in touch with us.💛💙🧡
🐹Nick and Noel🐹 the two male guinea pigs that where left with us earlier this week were understandably a bit shell-shocked on arrival. They have been separated from their female companions and are starting to settle.💛💙🧡

Aww I'll take them , just lost our house rabbit and GSD last month , house is empty 😢
There are better ways to rehome an animal even if you are desperate.
If Kate, or Jo hadn't found them they might have been found by predators or died of cold
Pet Samaritans will always offer advice on what to do if you can't keep an animal, and I and others will foster
They are a sanctuary not a dumping ground, sick and injured animals need their help this takes up valuable resources.
The person must have been desperate 🙁 glad they are safe with you.
Vicki Eddison the trouble is, if this person rang up and asked if someone could take these guineas, the answer would be no. But leave them on the doorstep and they get taken in! I see it time and time again and the only reason I see it is because they write about it on Facebook which sends the message that it works. I don't condone it but I see why desperate people do it.
They are beautiful 💕
Hope they find a happy home 🤣
Thankyou for caring for these beautiful creatures.
🦉Arwin 🦉 the Tawny Owl flew into a car Saturday night during the storm. She hadn't eaten anything since being found and was extremely weak and cold when she arrived at the centre on Monday. Thankfully Croft Vets in Bolsover suggested Arwins finders contact us. We are hopeful she will make a full recovery.
🐹Left at our gates yesterday🐹. Four young Guinea Pigs, two girls and two boys. Over the years we've had many animals left at our gates and each time it breaks our hearts.💔
We are struggling for space and funds and this puts even more pressure on us. The girls will have to stay with us for now incase they are pregnant. The two boys however will be available for adoption as soon as they have been given a clean bill of health.
I had someone leave their guinea pigs in my garden when I moved into house. Didn't realise until they were running around garden. They were starving. Had eaten through cage to get out. Can't believe they just left their pets 😦 x
Disgusting they could have left some money to help care for then you need cctv to catch the culprits. On a plus note i’m sorting out my donation in lieu of not sending xmas cards will get it to you in next few days xx
Poor little pigs, but I have to say they couldn't be with better people than who they have been left with they will have the best care now 😥
Omg, the temperature today as well! So lucky you found them in time, for love of God, what is wrong with people? Much love to you all, xx
Omg poor little babies ! So glad you have them now 🥰 They look so scared ! Just want to give them all a cuddle
This has upset me so much, look at their little faces, they must be petrified, but at least who ever left them didn’t hurt them physically. Bless them. 😍 what would happen if there were not people-places like you and yours. Thank you for everything you do.
Poor babies bless them. Fingers crossed for forever homes soon
In the tiniest travel cage too, poor baby’s 😢
The only thing I can say in their favour is that they left them where they would be found. Despite that these poor piggies could have been attacked by predators or frozen to death.
Wow! Good of them to leave the blanket if indeed it was them but at least they are now safe the poor babies
That’s so sad, I can’t imagine how hard it must’ve been for them to be given up 😔
Awful, how can people be so heartless. Safe now and in caring hands 💗💗
So sad! Hope they find their forever homes soon ❤️
Oh my goodness, that's heartbreaking. They're in good hands now x
How many in one small box😱 Poor little pigs💔
The poor piggies, dread to think what could have happened, I love my piggies, So if I can help in any way I will
How can anyone just abandon them like that. Its truly horrible 😔😔😔
Katie Jones 😭😭😭😭 how could someone leave those little piggies! Make me so angry and sad. Hope they find lovely homes.
Running the Pet Samaritans isn't just about the animals. Maintaining the property uses a huge amount of resources. This is a window in the building that we are renovating to be the new Wildlife Hospital. As you can see it will need replacing completely. We are extremely grateful to everyone that supports us. Your contributions mean we can make improvements and carry out much needed maintenance work.💙💛🧡

The heart melting moment when Peter was reunited with his mum this afternoon. We couldn't wait to share it with you!🧡💛💙 Piper has been pacing all day and has been generally very unsettled while Peter has been at the Vets today for neutering.
Peter and Piper are a Mother and Son duo who we would like to find a new home together. If you are looking to welcome a new cat into your home please give us a call for more information. Our phone lines are open 9am until 5pm 7days a week. 01246 455777 or 07872 421878
So wish we could take them, they are such beautiful natured cats (unlike our little monster!) Hope you are all keeping well, much love, xx
oh my goodness we have a brother - and he plays with our dog exactly like this! I'm sorry they've not be adopted. We really wanted to take them but just don't think we can. Charlie is such an affectionate kitten. He is always on our laps and so playful. We love him!
if only i was 20 years younger and did not live on a main road they are so good together hope they find their new forever home soon xxx
How heartwarming! Would love them but don’t think Holly and Jerry would approve! 😊
