Since 2002, the North Devon Animal Ambulance (NDAA) has been an active local animal welfare charity based
in North Devon. Our care for wild and domestic animals is made possible by the generosity and goodwill of
people like you. Through fundraising, donations, volunteering and other support, you make our work possible.
Every penny goes on animal welfare. No one in this organisation is paid.
Animal welfare when creatures
are in distress
We’re regularly involved when the county’s animals are in distress. And we educate people through visits to local shows, schools and homes for the elderly. We also help shape the future of animal welfare in North Devon through initiatives such as our successful animal neutering programmes.
Sometimes we work alone, but often with other authorities including the police, social services, the fire and rescue service, the RSPCA and local coastguards. We have close working relationships with local vets and animal welfare officers, and with the region’s media. They are all vital to our work.
Working around the clock
Our animal welfare work takes place seven days a week beside the county’s roads and on its windy cliff tops. We care for large and small animals in our Barnstaple special care unit. And our dedicated animal ambulance, driven by Diana Lewis (formerly an RSPCA animal welfare officer before becoming the charity’s figurehead), has become a familiar sight on Devon roads. Give her a wave when you see her!
Transforming the lives of animals
Over the years, we’ve lost count of all the animals we’ve provided with animal welfare. We’ve transformed their lives and those of the humans with whom they interact. That’s because we’re much more than just a small local animal charity – we’re an animal welfare organisation that benefits North Devon’s people too.
