The Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice is situated in peaceful surroundings in the north east of Scotland, near the Moray Coast and just outside of the Cairngorms National Park, but in a few weeks we are moving to our new, bigger home for us and The Karass Farmed Animal Sanctuary near Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway.
Currently situated in just under an acre, the Hospice provides a warm, loving family environment for our residents.
On our grounds, our own family and our residents can enjoy lots of room to potter in their garden, and our location in the remote north of Scotland provides lots of peaceful walks for our family and for our dog residents to enjoy.
We are currently raising funds to build a purpose-built Hospice unit in our grounds, to provide the space we need to fully cater to the needs of our residents. This will be a comfortable, peaceful place next to but separate from the house, where residents can relax without the noises of everyday life in our home, but can also join us in the main house if and when they are able and they want to. It will also mean we are able to spend time with them in their own home, as it will be a home environment with sofas, comfy beds, and everything they need to be comfortable and to feel secure. The Hospice unit will be tailored to the needs of our residents, and will provide space for two dogs, or one dog and two smaller animals, at any one time, with outdoor areas for them to enjoy the sun and the breeze when they choose to. It will be a peaceful, warm, comfortable home and will enable us to provide the best of care and to spend time with the residents, but also to provide peace and quiet when that is what they tell us they need.
We operate an open-door policy, so visitors are welcome to come and see the Hospice, meet us, discuss what we do, have a cup of tea, and meet the residents (if they are at a time in their lives when they are able to receive visitors). Please call in advance to make sure we are home.
