Animal Hospital Fund Raising
We are now raising funds to build a new dedicated facility for the care of sick and injured small animals. This ambitious project will provide the means to provide specialist care for animals in acute conditions, as well quarantine incoming animals for the protection of resident animals.

Hare Hand Reared and Released
Back in August we took in two Laverets, sadly their mother was killed as she tried to cross a road with her babies. On the bright side, a vigilant member of the public saw what had happened, rescued the baby Hares and brought them to us. Over the coming weeks we hand reared them. Sadly the […]
Barn Owl Released
A few weeks ago we were brought a barn owl chick that had been found on the ground, he was still covered in down, in fact he resembled a pompom! He was far too young to be out of the nest, he wouldn’t have survived more than a few hours. Fortunately other than being separated […]
On Friday night, after dropping off the pony gorgeous George to his new home we got back thinking we might be able to go and catch some abandoned goats in Gunthorpe……………no chance!!! We got back to find a couple with a very poorly tawny owl on our doorstep. This little guy was found in the […]

Too many rabbits in the world………..
Whilst ever there are unwanted animals in rescue centres there will never be any such thing as ‘responsible’ breeders. Breeders make money and then rescue centres pick up the pieces and put things right. 13 rabbits came in yesterday from someone who had been breeding from them. All need neutering and all need vaccinating before […]
These piglets, probably around 2 days old, were dumped in the suburbs of London. They first went to a large national animal welfare organisation, unfortunately they said that they were too difficult to rear and they were going to be destroyed. Thank goodness, the vets who originally found them, decided they would not let this […]
Start of the Silly Season
We often refer to Spring as the silly season, that’s because we get a constant precession of baby animals that need rescuing, everything from pigeons to foxes, hedgehogs to birds of prey. These two chaps are scwabs, baby wood pigeons. Unfortunately due to limited resources, we cannot cope with the shear number of calls to […]
