Booking a ticket is essential to avoid disappointment as visitor numbers are limited for the welfare of our nervous rescue animals.
Our aviaries are now open until 2pm daily. The dog walks are also open. Part of the lake area is still closed due to the avian flu restrictions. If you wish to adopt an animal you must apply online or call us for assistance.

Many of the dogs at Raystede are behind the scenes where they receive specialist care so you may not always see rescue dogs in the runs or around the site. Some of our dogs are nervous, shy or have special behavioural needs so they might need some downtime in the kennels, which is crucial for their rehabilitation and to make it as comfortable as possible for them.

We help animals find loving new homes - if you have any questions about the work we do to help pets like Boycie please do ask your tour guide.
