Situated on the old Wetheriggs Pottery site, the centre is currently home to over 1200 animals, many of which have been pets in the past and are now looking for new homes. Some of the animals are brought in from the RSPCA and other animal rescue organisations and centres.There is lots to see, and visitors have the chance to get close to many of the animals and even feed some of them.We offer talks and animal handling sessions during weekends and local school holidays, and we are always happy to go the extra mile for our visitors, so if there is any animal you'd like to hold or learn more about please just ask. « less
