We believe that a primary cause for wild animals needing rescuing,that's either through direct or indirectly is down human activity.
Our team works tirelessly, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to rescue and rehabilitate animals back to health and give them the best chance to live free.

This will help to reduce any shock the animal is most likely suffering from and aid its recovery
Important to note!
A wild animal by the very nature that the animal is wild, and usually avoids Humans, so being found by us will mean the wild animal will be terrified by your presence and may fight, scratch and bite at you to get away. Please work quickly and quietly to confine the animal and put the animal into a dark box as possible to avoid further shock and distress.
Please be reassured that they will not benefit or want any comforting or cuddling it could further weaken the animal and reduce the chance of full recovery.
Time is of the essence for an animal's chance of survival in a rescue situation, and the quickest option is to take it to a local vet, they have the expertise to assess the animal's chances of survival.
If the animal has a chance for successful treatment, please give the vet our details if they don't have a wildlife rescue organisation that they work with, and we will arrange to collect.
