Dog owners -
Please note, that as of 1/1/17, dogs will not be permitted into Highland Wildlife Park, including the car park. We are a conservation charity and animal welfare is central to everything that we do. Dogs may be a source of stress to some of the animals in our collection and we also want to prevent any welfare issues associated with leaving dogs in cars. There are a number of quality kennel facilities in the local area that we would be happy to recommend.
Fully trained guide dogs and other registered assistance dogs are permitted in most areas of the Park. Assistance dogs in training are not permitted to enter.
Warning: leaving your dog in your vehicle during hot weather can cause extreme suffering and even death. Please be aware that dogs can die if left in a car even on a warm day. In a vehicle, the heat from the sun is intensified through the glass. Your dog will pant to try to cool down, which can lead to severe dehydration and hyperventilation.
Opening a window or leaving a bowl of water is not enough, so please, when possible, leave your dog at home and make adequate arrangements for feeding and exercise needs.
Causing an animal unnecessary suffering is an offence which can result in a fine and even a ban from owning animals. If you are aware of an animal in distress, please call the Scottish SPCA on 03000 999 999.
