About us

Our hospital provide a unique and vital service to our local community. Each of the thousands of animals we help every year has a unique story and a person, who cared enough to stop what they were doing and bring the animal to the rescue centre. We responded last year over 3500 wildlife incidents.

We support the general public, local vets, fire services, police and the RSPCA. We operate 7-days a week, 365 days year. We are funded by donations from the public and our own fundraising efforts. We ‘Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release, Refine and Educate’. Our rescue and rehabilitation is essential but so is having a space for our wild patients to be released back to.

Education is important to us. We see many wild animals arrive with us whose injuries are often caused by man and habitat devastation. We have been educating in the community through schools, community groups and campaigns, directly to tackle the key issues affecting our wildlife, and to create a wider understanding of the issues faced and the roles that we can play to alleviate them, enabling our precious wildlife to thrive. We have over thirty years of direct experience in helping sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals in their time of need.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant detrimental impact on our income. As a small charity we rely on donations from the public and fund raising from events and activities. Following the Government guidelines, we have had to cancel our planned events and activities tin 2019/20 .

As one of the wildlife hospitals that has remained operational throughout the COVID pandemic, we have seen an increase in the number of animals we have helped and treated this year. Please support us with our ongoing costs so that we can continue to function at the level needed to address the demand for our wildlife rescue and to ensure we can continue to help wildlife in the future. Throughout the lockdown, many of people have spent time enjoying nature and our local wildlife. This has had a positive effect on many people’s mental health and for some, they have helped a sick or injured wild animal which is something they will never forget.

We will continue to battle here on the front and we hope you will continue to support us and the wild animals that need our help .

Thank you from us all xx
