The UK Government have applied an Avian Influenza Protection Zone across the UK. This means that we must close our Aviaries to the public until the restrictions are lifted.
We do NOT have this virus at Raystede but we are required to put in place a range of measures to protect our birds. We are still open and welcome visitors to the rest of the site – please book your ticket.

We rely on your support to save animals' lives & do the work we do.

You can make a difference to animals like Elsa.

We met Elsa when she was just 15 months old. Born in a shed and kept outside her whole life, with no chance to socialise with other dogs, she was scared; constantly on edge and nervous about every aspect of life. Thanks to donors like you, we were able to give Elsa the time, patience and training she needed. Elsa is now the active, friendly dog, we knew she could be who has settled in to her loving home.
