fox in a garden

Foxes are extremely clever and adaptable animals and have taken well to towns. The urban fox has evolved so well he seems really at home in our towns now.

 

As a rescue we get both town and country foxes and they are almost different breeds.


 

Foxes get used to their surrounding and recognise people and noises very quickly. This can make them very cheeky. Cubs have far less reserve than their parents and will come right up to people, cats and dogs unaware of the dangers this often causes them. By the time a fox has reached the end of their first year they have learnt to respect all of them and should keep a safe distance away. That distance in the countryside is greater as they are just like humans, the need for personal space varies from countryside to city READ MORE

remember the bear hug code

If as a human you were captured by a bear and taken to his cave and told in bear language that he was going to make you better you would not relax and many of us would die of shock. Animals are not cuddled in the wild and the only time another species touches them is when they are going to eat them.

 

Wildlife Rescue for mammals

All our wildlife is scared of us and shock kills. If you find an injured animal place it in a warm strong box so it cannot escape and maybe covered in a towel so it can hide and get it to your nearest rescue. Looking at the animals and talking to them will not help.

Wildlife Rescue Care for Birds

 

Many baby birds that sound in distress are perfectly health and very strong. Once temporarily abandoned by their parents in a bid to encourage their independence, the struggling youngster can become very distressed.
Usually protective parent stay very nearby to feed in an emergency and see them safely on their way. READ MORE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

why we do it

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance on the beach, and so he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean READ MORE

ABOUT US

 

 

We are a Small Wildlife Charity that this year will respond to over 1600 wildlife rescues. Each year this number increases along with our costs. We care, treat, and rehabilitate all of our British wildlife.

 

We originally started supporting local vets and now receive wildlife from the public . We are available seven days a week for advice and admissions. We are sometimes able to collect and rescue wildlife in a variety of unusual situations READ MORE

 

education

 

As well as working on the front line we give talks and show our stunning wildlife to a variety of groups and schools - Wildlife Rocks Me Talks. We believe that a better understanding of these creatures will promote not only tolerance but a willingness to integrate them into our lives.

 

Children will become the custodians of our planet and we hope, through our talks, will have a better understanding of and take an interest in our wonderful wildlife as they take on that ultimate role.

 

We raise funds by donations, our newsletter, attending County Shows, Car boot sales, selling on eBay, Fairs, and our shop.

 

There are many ways you can help us

 

See if you can help us by clicking here - Can You Help Us . From hands on volunteering to clicking at home we need all sorts of help and all sorts of people to join our small and crazy team.

 

How we started

 

Whilst out walking with my dog in the early 1980's I found a small hedgehog stuck in a fence. He was too fat to go through and his prickles wouldn't let him go back.


He had been pushing so long in an attempt to free himself that the wire had cut into his body and his leg was bleeding where he had pushed and pushed against the ground. I had in my handbag a pair of pliers (no surprise to anyone who knows me) I cut the wire and removed the hedgehog READ MORE

 

CUBBING

 

Early in the morning a Hunt of mounted riders quietly surround a thicket they know to contain a family of foxes. The female fox or vixen hears the movement but will not leave her cover as she has cubs to protect. The huntsmen surrounds the thicket, they slap their saddles, hollar and shout to prevent the fox and her cubs leaving the thicket. They want to have their fun.
