    The Exotic Pet Refuge can only survive from help from the public - we receive no government funding, and need over £65,000 a year to survive as we are now! We are also always looking to expand so that we can care for more and more animals.

    If you feel that you would like to HELP the Refuge, then there are many ways in which you can do so:

        * VOLUNTEER - Animal Care Assistants, Administrators, Builders, Handymen are URGENTLY NEEDED!

         * Make a financial Donation

        * Sponsor an animal

        * Donate items listed on our Amazon Wish List on www.amazon.co.uk

        * Donate Food (e.g. dried / tinned dog / cat food / fruit / veg, nuts, bird seed etc.)

        * Donate Building Materials (cement, sand, screws etc.) or other useful items

         * Hold a Fundraising Event

         * Have a Party / Corporate Event  or a Team Building Day at the Refuge

         * Have a Birthday Party with Refuge animals, click on:   http://www.exoticpetrefuge.org.uk/parties

         * Become a Keeper For The Day or  have  an Animal Experience

         * Come to one of our Photography Days


    All the animals at the Exotic Pet Refuge need to be stimulated - Enrichment is a daily activity that the staff and volunteers provide for the animals and we need your help with resources. Can you donate or provide funds for the following items?

    • Hessian bags
    • Footballs, tennis balls, rugby balls, basket balls
    • Hanging baskets (metal)
    • Rope in all sizes
    • Cable ties
    • Towels and blankets 
    • Round wooden blocks or round wooden posts

    If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the refuge or in helping in any other way, please contact us.



    Have you ever wanted to know what happens behind the scenes here at the Exotic Pet Refuge? Now with our new Keeper for the Day and Animal Experiences packages you can take a sneak peek into how much hard work and dedication goes into looking after our animals. The experience also give you an exclusive chance to get up close and personal with some of our amazing animals.

    By purchasing any of our experiences packages you will be directly contributing towards the upkeep of the animals and supporting the Exotic Pet Refuge.

    Please contact us at exoticpetrefuge@aol.com for more information.

    (Keeper For The Day  has to be 14+yrs old)



    You will be guided by a Professional Photographer and will have the chance to go past the public barriers in small groups and get close to the wire, allowing far better pictures to be taken than on the Open Days.

    Starting at 10:00am, the group will be joined during the day by a volunteer, who will help with setting up the shots using healthy treats and enrichment to encourage the more shy animals to ‘pose’.

    All proceeds go to help fund the Exotic Pet Refuge.
