Open Day

Native Animal Rescue is the only major wildlife centre in Perth’s northern suburbs dedicated to the rehabilitation & release of sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife in WA. We receive on average 3,000 native animals every year, including birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. It costs approximately $10 per day per animal for food, electricity and ongoing care costs, with some animals needing medication for an extra cost. As an ATO-registered not-for-profit organisation, we receive 100% of our funds through generous donations from the public and private sectors, limited grants opportunities, and through major fundraising events.

This year we are holding an Open Day to raise much-needed funds for our animals and give back to the community that helps us so much. Come and join us on Sunday July 9th from 10am – 3pm.

You can like our event on Facebook for updates when we add them by clicking through here. You can tag your friends to let them know about the Open Day, so nobody misses out on the fun!

NAR’s Animal Hospital will still be accepting new admissions

If you find a sick, injured or distressed native animal on Sunday July 9th, we will still be open and happy to help you. Just let the greeters know and come straight to reception. If you would like to stay for the Open Day, you can purchase a ticket at reception after admitting the animal. For the sake of the animal, please DO NOT visit attractions before admitting it. The animal has the right to a safe and quiet environment, and either leaving it in the car or carrying it around for any longer than absolutely necessary can impose unnecessary stress, and STRESS KILLS!

If you have any questions on the day, please look for one of our friendly volunteers in their black NAR shirts.

Important information

NAR has done its utmost to ensure most of the attractions will be accessible for all patrons. However, our facility tours are down a gravel path that may not be suitable for wheelchairs. Additionally, if you have young children, we request that they stay calm and quiet during any cuddle/photo sessions and facility tours. This is for the welfare of our animals, as loud noises can stress them out, potentially leading to an accidental scratch or bite. While our volunteers will do everything they can to ensure a safe experience for your family, all interactions with the animals will be at your own risk.

Absolutely NO SMOKING and NO ALCOHOL on site. If you would like to smoke, you will need to exit the grounds completely. There is a zero tolerance policy, and if you are caught smoking on site you will be asked to leave.

It’s going to be a fun day, see you then!
