The main objective of the Animal Rescue Group is ensuring fast transport and treatment of animals and birds that have been in an accident or are in need of emergency veterinary care. The Animal Rescue Group operates on a voluntary basis and is fully dependent on donations – this sets the strictest of restrictions on our capability. Today, we have the capacity to respond on a satisfactory level only in Tallinn, Pärnu, Viljandi, Lääne-Viru County, Muhu County, and Põhja-Harju and Lääne-
Harju regions. We kindly ask for your understanding.

The work of our emergency hotline 1414  is connected to the opening hours of veterinary clinics and we are ready to take your calls on weekdays from 10 am to 6 pm, on weekends and public holidays from 12 noon to 8 pm.

This does not mean that you should not attempt to call outside of our working hours – we always try to pick up if at all possible and we do our best to ensure help for both the animal in need and you. The telephone is operated by three persons: if the first person will not pick up, the call is directed to the next staff members. We apologize for any inconvenience and kindly ask you to be patient – we do what we can with what we have to work with as mere mortal animal lovers.

NB! Make sure to include in as much detail as possible the relevant location, description of the injury,
pictures or videos, and your own contact details. We will reply and respond as soon as we can!

The Animal Rescue Group NPO is the fastest growing popular movement today in the field of animal protection. The objective of the organization’s volunteers is to ensure fast help and treatment for injured or mistreated animals and birds. Nevertheless, the Group’s goal is not to become the largest animal protection association but, rather, foremost to assemble active animal lovers that can actually help animal and birds.

Many of the Group’s volunteers have been protecting animals for more than ten years now, being members of other organizations. The core of the Animal Rescue Group consists of Area Managers, formerly employed by the Estonian Union for the Protection of Animals, in whose assessment an organization specialized in the rescue of animals in need of emergency care is rendered much more effective and operative when operating independently and autonomously.

Objectives:

  • ASSISTING ANIMALS AND BIRDS IN DISTRESS AND IN NEED OF HELP AND MAKING ARRANGEMENTS FOR TREATMENT
  • RESPONDING TO CALLS RELATED TO ANIMALS AND BIRDS INJURED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS AND ENSURING TREATMENT
  • SOLVING COMPLAINTS RECEIVED FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC CONCERNING ANIMALS AND CHECKING ADHERENCE TO ANIMAL KEEPING REQUIREMENTS
  • REHABILITATING MISTREATED ANIMALS AND FINDING NEW HOMES FOR THEM
