    Volunteers Needed!!!

    Are you over the age of 16?

    Do you have 1 spare day a week?

    Would you love to work with a wide variety of beautiful and exotic animals?


    If you answered yes to these three questions then we have the perfect role for you! We are currently looking for new volunteers. We are looking for people over the age of 16 who are able to commit to a minimum of 1 day a week. Any experience with animals would be beneficial but not a necessity as full training will be given. Volunteers are involved in the day to day care of a wide selection of our animals. Duties include preparing food, feeding and watering the animals, mucking out and other general animal husbandry duties. If you are interested please email us at exoticpetrefuge@aol.com with your details

    We would like to Thank to all of our visitors, volunteers and supporters for helping us to continue providing safe refuge to animals in need! The most of this year's open days were extremely successful mainly because of a new rented car park, VIP guests, good weather, plenty of advertising and the great generosity of the public!

    in April: around â‚¤7,000

    May: ₤4,300

    June: £2,900

    July: £6,500

    September: £4,800

    A special Thank You goes to Mr. Warwick Davis and his lovely family for visiting us during the July Open Day, spreading the word about the Refuge and signing many autographs!
