Come and visit Wetheriggs - Wetheriggs Animal Rescue is a small family run animal rescue centre at Thorpe Farm Caravan Park located on the border of County Durham and North Yorkshire.
We are open every day from 10am to the public. Visitors have the chance to get close and interact with our animals including feeding some of them! We also regularly hold animal handling sessions with rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks, rodents, snakes, lizards and much more.
The main entrance is located in the building directly opposite the Thorpe Farm Reclamation Barn. There is plenty of parking space close to the entrance and the Wetheriggs gift shop is also located here. The entrance fee helps to run the rescue centre
A large proportion of our animals are housed outside in the paddocks. This area is separate to the main entrance and requires visitors to walk across the car park and a small road to visit. Visitors are required to purchase wristbands from the main entrance before visiting the paddocks. Access to Wetheriggs Rescue Centre is free of charge to our seasonal caravan pitch holders and holiday home residents.
