Giving unwanted or injured animals the gift of a home is what Wetheriggs Animal Rescue is all about.
This small family run animal rescue centre was set up in 2006 and now takes domestic pets, farm animals and native wildlife who are in need of nurturing in a safe, open space giving them a new chance at life! Get up close and interact with different animals including rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks, rodents, snakes, lizards and more.
There are education and animal handling sessions to help you learn how best to take care of your pets as well as a playground with mini quad bikes, a café and seasonal events!
