Animal ambulance services since 2002

With your support, our little charity has been caring for North Devon's animals since 2002. That was when we started the North Devon Animal Ambulance around one of our founding trustees' kitchen table. Little did we know how our dream and the small pile of cash we threw onto the table would develop into services such as the following:

Supported by animal lovers like you

Over the years, supported by animal lovers like you, we’ve rescued, cared for, rehabilitated and rehomed many domestic and wild animals and birds, often under traumatic, heartbreaking circumstances. When changed fortunes, accident, nature’s vagaries and human cruelty turn animals’ lives upside down, the North Devon Animal Ambulance is there. We’ll help seven days a week, 365 days a year. And there’s more…

More than just another animal charity

We’re more than just another small animal charity. When we help animals, there’s usually a benefit for humans too. We’re an animal ambulance charity that also helps people.

Since our modest foundation, and with the support of local people, the media and generous benefactors, we’ve obtained an animal ambulance, opened our Misty Centre animal shelter and set up a special care unit in Barnstaple. Our 12-page quarterly newsletter goes to hundreds of supporters. And as of January 2013, we’re running free animal care clinics. We help the local community in all sorts of ways…

Helping North Devon’s animals in big and small ways

If you run a care home for the elderly, we’ll come and talk to your residents. At the other end of the animal welfare spectrum, we run local neutering campaigns that help shape better futures for North Devon’s cats and dogs. We’ll try to help if you can’t afford vet fees. And, though we’re only a small local charity, we play our part in regional animal welfare issues – such as working with the feral goats in the Valley of the Rocks.

If you’ve ever seen the terror in the eyes of a traumatised animal, you’ll understand how rewarding it is to rescue them, find them a new, loving home or return them to the wild. Here’s how you can help us put the sparkle back in those pleading eyes…
