‘Saviour’ He is who the Sanctuary is named after. He was found walking the streets in Newcastle by the police and came to live here. Although he hated people and animals that he did not know, He would protect all those he lived with. I always think of him as the Heart and Soul of the sanctuary and even though he sadly passed away 20th may 2016, we can still sense him here all the time. ‘Love ya lots big boy xx’

Teeny Tiny This gentle giant was rescued with her brother Izzy Wizzy, Although very territorial, She loves cuddles and kisses from us and enjoys our company, Like her brother, She needed operations at 5 weeks old but is now perfectly healthy and is loved like mad 

‘Izzy-Wizzy’ The Brother of ‘Teeny-Tiny’ Like his sister he had a very bad start in life, And although he is slightly shy, he is now perfectly healthy 

‘Roly’ was unwanted by a shop because of a lump on his nose so the driver brought him to us. He was 4-5 years old at the time and lived until he was 14. His ashes are here in the office (next to Saviours) and he has a star named after him.. Missed so very much.

‘Freddie’ This gorgeous Chocolate striped Skunk, was given to me by some lovely people in Nottingham. They loved him like mad and he had everything he needed but unfortunately their job changed and it meant that they had to work away from home. Sadly Freddie was born with a calcium deficiency and one of his back legs had no feeling, so had to be amputated. luckily it is illegal to De-scent skunks in this country now ,so he can still spray but he never has done as he is always kept happy and content, Totally loved.

Freddie’ trying to grab the dogs dinner. 



Antwan, A Collared Dove which Jem rescued a few years ago, She reared him back to good health and he managed to fly back into the wild, Was last seen with 2 female doves 

‘Guss’ the Prairie Dog, He was brought to me with ‘Freddie’ the Sunk and 2 other Prairie Dogs, ‘Maggie’ and ‘Jeff’. Lovely little characters, ‘Maggie is a little shy though

Captain Beaky, Found in the street and brought to me in 2017, He was a gorgeous little fella that we raised, He got on great with the other ducks and ‘Eek’ the Seagull, He eventually flew off (Migrated) when the weather changed. They have been known to come back, hopefully i will see him again one day


‘Beaky’ enjoying a drink of water

‘Eek’ The Gull Brought to me in the Summer 2017. He had to be taught to walk and fly as he was only a few days old. He is now fully feathered and although he can fly off if he wanted to, He chooses to stay with us. He calls to us to come in at night and his best friend is a duck. It is important to say that these birds are highly protected. if you harm one it is a £5000 fine or up to 6months in prison. we work very closely with animal licensing to make sure that all ‘Eek’s needs are met.

Eek, The day he came to us. 


A special harness to support his weight to strengthen his legs until he could walk properly

Zoltar – The first fox i ever rescued, He was about 7 months old when he came to me and instantly became best friends with Saviour the German Shepherd. He was a Silver Fox who later became best friends with Zeus and Zante, He was always the Alpha but had the most beautiful soul. He totally broke our hearts when he sadly passed away due to old age in September 2017

Little MO (Morrigan after the huntress of the forest) This little baby is gorgeous, but please never buy one unless you really know what you are doing as they are not a pet to be taken lightly, Mo is very independent and will not allow us to go near her most of the time, She can be very vicious even though she spent the first 6 months in my arms and living in my house, playing with the other animals. Despite spending hours in her play pen with her, she still sees it has ‘Her’ space and will attack if we try to pick her up. During various times of the year she will come up to me for a cuddle and those times are so Magical

‘Angelica’ was found suffering in a pet shop and spent the first 4 days at the vets with her sister ‘Misty’. They lived a full life, but passed away a few years ago. 

Mr Jingles’, I have had a lot of hamsters given to me in the past, Parents buy them for young children and then want to get rid of them when the child gets nipped, Mr Jingles was a lovely little character that never showed me any sign of aggression.  

‘Charlotte’ was given to us in January 2017 as the owners no longer wanted to keep her. She is in her vivarium next to my desk as I type. She often goes into hunting mode after eating and cant be handled during this time, But the rest of the time she is gorgeous. 

‘Celo’ and ‘Valentine’ Celo named after ‘Celo Green’ came to us in the summer of 2017 when her owner could no longer look after her. She has a large cage in our bedroom which she only uses at night, her days are spent sat on top of ‘Valentines’ cage, chatting away. She does not like physical contact with us but always comes over when we have breakfast in bed for her share of our food, Quite often she will fly to the doves cage to pass her food through the bars.


‘Valentine’ the Java Dove. Her parents were rescued from a magician who did not want them as they got old, They moved in with myself and laid an egg shortly before they died. ‘Valentine’ is their baby. She lives in a large cage in my bedroom but flies out every morning.

‘Hermese’ This beautiful little girl had gone without food, water, UVB lighting, heat lamps and the proper flooring for nearly two months before we took her. Due to calcium deficiency she has lumps all over her. Her health is now ok and she now has all of her needs. Such a gorgeous soul

Pink’ and ‘Floyd’ were given to us in April 2015 aged 9yrs and 10yrs old. they were owned by a couple who loved them dearly but were going to be working out of the house more and did not want to leave them alone. They are such lovely characters and they have totally taken to us and copy everything we say. Their conversations have us laughing all of the time

‘Zoltar’ the Silver Fox

Yellow Bellied Side Sliders. These two turtles were given to me in 2014 when their owner worked away and could not take them with him. Like all turtles of this kind, they grew too large for their tank, so with the help of the vets we climatised them and for the last 2 years,they have lived in an ornamental pond on a private park with fountains and grass banks to sun bathe on.

Over the years we have taken in many cats, Some in need of medical attention and others who were pregnant. Here are a few 

‘Lovely Jubbly’ 








Mr Twinkle’ 



‘Mr Pips’ This big boy was the boss over all the cats, He was rescued with his brother ‘Popcorn’ and although he never hurt another cat, his appearance automatically demanded respect. If the cats where hissing at each other, he only had to stand up and they would stop. Each night he would walk into the living room and sit on the rug, He would rub heads with ‘Saviour’ and then jump on my lap for 10 minutes. Then he would disappear back up the stairs. It was the same every night until he sadly past away in 2011- He will always hold a special place in my heart 

‘Saviour ‘nursing ‘Misty’ and ‘Angelica’ back to good health

Destiny’ and her babies 

Chocolate’ came from a house in ‘Stakeford’ she was bought as a pet for the children and was then unwanted. She spent the rest of her days with us. 

Ice – This Burmese Python was given to me as a baby. Someone had bought her not realising how big she could grow. by the time she got to 8ft long she was so powerful that i could not control her and it would of been stupid to keep her in the house with so many other animals, She was big enough to eat me never mind the animal family. She was given to a snake expert who has now passed her on to a special sanctuary in the south that specialise in reptiles  

‘Chilli’ the Corn Snake

Mida’s the Royal Python Given to me by some people that did not want her anymore, Sadly she was suffering from Anorexia when she arrived and despite the best medical care she did not survive

Alvin’ the Long haired Hamster 

Eenie’ and ‘Meenie’ The Gerbils 

Gos’ the Pigeon, Found in Gosforth , Hence the name. He could not fly strong enough to survive in the wild and so spent his days in my garden with the ducks

Tequilla’ The Cockatoo Suffered from birth with a disease that a lot of Australian birds can have. Basically the feathers fail to open properly causing major discomfort. Breeders and Shops should by right be testing for this when they are a chick but so many fail to do so. She sadly passed away when 4 years of age. 

Sky’ The budgie, Yet another unwanted pet that came here when the persons kids got board of her 



‘Fluffy’ the Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, Was given to me after I did a birthday party, The child had lost interest in her so her parents asked if i would take her, She passed away about 4 years ago.

‘Bobbin’ A fantastic little character – always star of the show, Broke our heart when he passed away in 2017 


‘Pepsi’ Broke my heart when this little fella died, He was more like a dog, Miss him so much  



‘Thumper’ A few rabbits have been named after the cartoon character in Bambi, but this little fella was the first one 

‘Fortune’ was a nervous little character at first but soon came to trust me, So sad when she passed away
