Willows Animal Sanctuary is the largest sanctuary in Aberdeenshire and will try to help any animal in distress. We have been a Scottish charity since 1999 and have helped literally thousands of animals and birds during this time. We operate a strict no kill policy and only put an animal to sleep on veterinary advice. Willows now cares for over 450 animals and birds including 100 equines, 60 cats and dogs, 200 farm animals and birds and many more small animals and reptiles. Here at Willows, we take in any animal, whether he or she has been abused, starved or if the owner just simply couldn’t cope. Each case is judged on its merits and we are not bound by dogma or rigid restrictions about age or worth. We are always there for the animals (and we try to help the owners too). We are totally dependent on donations and legacies to keep the sanctuary running. Unlike larger charities we have no reserves of money and are always desperately short of funds. We specialise in helping elderly or more vulnerable animals that have already been refused help by well-known large national charities.
Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation Centre. Our aim is for all wildlife, regardless of species, to have a safe place to recover, and where possible, recuperate to be able to be released back to the wild.
