These two guys were found orphaned, a member of the public was doing a great job in hand rearing them and feeding them with the right food, this is often not the case. If you find an orphaned wild animal, keep it warm, dry and quiet, do not attempt to force feed it or give it…
This week we have rescued another 85 battery hens, after a short life of only 18 months, they were destined to become pet food. Battery hens soon recover and make great pets. These girls have finally ventured out and seen daylight and experienced space for the very first time in their lives.
The ponies have been at Brinsley for five weeks now. We are very pleased with the way they have settled and responded.
We are seeing an ever increasing number of animals, particularly hedgehogs, coming to us seriously dehydrated due to the hot dry weather. This little man was brought to us today very dehydrated and out of cover during daylight, a clear sign that all is not well.
Update: 11 August 3 of the kittens have now been rehomed. The male tabby is currently with a foster family. Update: 13 July The kittens have become very friendly. We have one home for the bouncy black one, ‘Dobby-James’, he joins his new family soon. Anyone who thinks they could find the time to care…
We have a constant stream of wildlife coming in to us at the moment but many members of the public are doing all the wrong things before the animals get to us thus jeopardising the animal, which then needlessly dies.
Spring time is always a very busy time for us, as the baby animals come in on a daily basis.
It’s not everyday that we get a call to rescue a baby Stoat, but today is like many other days, full of surprises.
On Wednesday we rescued 4 dartmoor ponies, these ponies have been rounded up off the moor and were destined for slaughter. Of the 150 destined for pet food, 42 have been rescued by people and animal sanctuaries around the country.
